Masih ingat Pelajar pintar Matematik Malaysia?Sufiah Yusof ,Ariff Alfian,Amalina Che Bakri
Sufiah Yusof first made headlines in 1997 when she gained entry into St. Hilda’s College, Oxford University to study mathematics at the age of 13.
In 2001, she ran away from her student flat in Oxford, after taking her final examination paper for the academic year. She was found working as a waitress in a Bournemouth Internet cafe two weeks later, but refused to return home, alleging that her parents made life difficult for her at home. She stayed with a foster family instead.
Two years later, she returned to Oxford to complete her undergraduate master, but failed to finish the year. She later married a trainee lawyer from Oxford. She was working at the time as an administrative assistant for a construction company. Her marriage ended after 13 months.
In March 2008, a reporter working undercover for the News of the World found her advertising as a prostitute under the name Shilpa Lee, quoting a rate of £130 an hour.One of her friends described her change of fortunes as “desperately heartbreaking”, adding that “her gift [for mathematics] really has been a curse”.
In December 2008 it was reported that Sufiah had regretted her activities as a prostitute and was now a social worker.
