The son of a motor mechanic in Aligarh, who had received a scholarship, topped at his high school in the United States.
Mohammad Shadab told ANI, "Last year, I received the Kennedy-Lugar youth exchange scholarship worth Rs2 million from the US government. Following this, I went to the States to pursue my high school education."
Out of 800 students, Shadab was also selected Student of the Month at his school. On his achievement, he said: "It was an achievement for me to be awarded this tag."
"I have worked really hard to top the high school," Shadab said.
Shadab said: "The condition at home was not good and it is still not that good. I want to support my parents and make them feel proud."
He also thanked the Indian government. "I am thankful to the Indian government for making me the flag-bearer in another county and choosing me for this scholarship."
Shadab's father, Arshad Noor, who is working as a motor mechanic for the past 25 years, said: "We had sent him to the US for his education and I am happy that he topped at the school."
On being asked about his son's future plans, Arshad said: "I want my son to become an IAS officer and serve the country."
But Shadab expressed the desire to work at the United Nations as a human rights officer.
