IF you received eight Grade Ones and two Grade Twos in the recent Caribbean Secondary Examination Council results, would you be calm when you receive your results? Probably not.
Probably you would scream, cry, laugh, but not remain calm. Well, calmness was Kingston College's 16-year-old Jovae Taylor's response when he found out his results.
"I was very calm upon seeing my results," Taylor reiterated. "I felt somewhat satisfied with them and very thankful to God for his hand in my study period for the exams."
Taylor received the eight disticntions in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, information technology, social studies, French and English literature and the two Grade Twos in English language and geography.
"My inspiration comes from past academic scholars within my social arena and also some level of self-motivation," the TEEN from Kitson Town shared. "Without a shadow of doubt I was confident that I would have done well in the 2012 CSEC exams."
Indeed, when you have done all the necessary work, and have placed your faith in the one who never disappoints, you can differentiate yourself from the thousands of students who could barely contain themselves when they heard results were out.
"My philosophy in life is Philippians 4:13," Taylor told TEENage. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (And) in the future, God's willing, I would like to be a biochemist."
