A grade 10 Student, Ameya Santosh who went missing has been found by an another student in Dubai's La Mer. He took a bus from Sharjah to Al Ghubaiba bus station. He was survivng on water and spent Sunday taking shelter at the bus station before deciding to walk to La Mer.
The student decided to run away due to exam stress and fear that he was not prepared to take his board exams. His family drove all day from Sharjah to Dubai in search oftheir child. Later the father recived a phone call from a Kenyan man claiming he had found Ameya and spoke to him.
In La Mer Ameya himself called his father from another boy’s mobile, and the family was finally reunited. They have decided to let Ameya take a break from school for a few days and relax.
A little stress can be a good thing: it can be the motivational push that we need to get things done. However, sometimes, dealing with stress (especially during exam season) can be a difficult thing to do. Remember to pace yourself, breathe through panic, believe in yourself and if you feel like you are struggling, talk to someone.
