Rukaiya Abuwala, 17, topped the Science Olympiad Foundation‘s (SoF) seventh International English Olympiad by beating students from 42,800 schools across 1,400 cities in 25 countries. “I love reading. Many times, I have been caught reading secretly in class,” she told TOI.
Thanking her teachers and parents for their support, Rukaiya said she hadn’t expected to bag the first rank. “At first, I was shocked when I heard that I had topped,” said the teenager who writes regularly for her school magazine.
