Talented young footballer Har Amrit Kaur has always wanted to strike a balance between her studies and passion for the sport. Har Amrit proved this when she scored 9As in the Form Three Assessment (PT3), reports a Malaysian newspaper.

The SMK Alor Akar student said she represented the state of Pahang women’s football team in the Tun Sharifah Rodziah Trophy recently. She said she had to juggle her time between studies, extra classes and football training during the weekends.

“I only scored 2As during my PT3 trial examination and knew that I had to work harder.

“Based on the extra hours I had spent on revisions during the last few weeks before PT3, I was confident that I would do well.

“I stayed back at school for revisions every day except Fridays, and all the hardwork has paid off,” she was quoted in the New Straits Times.

Har Amrit Kaur, 15, who represents the state’s Under-16 and senior football teams at the national-level female football tournaments, said her parents had always reminded her to excel in studies and sports.

“My father Sourhan Singh and mother Surinder Kaur have always showed their support for me to play football.

“I have a dream of becoming a professional footballer but I must not neglect my studies,” said Har Amrit, who is the eldest of two siblings.

She said she was a huge fan of Argentina and Barcelona football star Lionel Messi.

Her classmate Faiznur Izzati Wan Hamden had scored 10As read newspapers daily to strengthen her command of Bahasa Malaysia and English.
