K’Chin, a Vietnamese Australian, has won the title of most excellent student in Australia’s western state of Queensland for 2010, which is a part of Australia’s annual international Training and Education Awards.
K’Chin was born in 1989 in Vietnam’s Central Highlands province of Lam Dong. He was handicapped at a very early age as he severely injured his right leg.
At present, K’Chin can walk by himself as he was supported by the organisation Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children (ROMAC), with surgery in Queensland when he was thirteen. His determination and studiousness helped him to win the award.
He said at the awards ceremony he was honoured and the award was beyond his expectations.
His school friends from St. James College in the city of Brisbane have also elected him to head up the school’s student association next year./.
