[quote]In truth, I am happy and amazed. The happiness that surrounds me is greater than what I feel. The supporters who stood by me were a great strength. My father, my mother and my company, my school, my village and the Sri lankan people are sharing in this happiness today.
I am thankful to everyone who helped bring me to this position, especially Dumal Sir. I am thankful to everyone who was behind my journey. I am thankful to Sirasa for giving me this stage and taking me to unimaginable heights, enabling me to become a voice of Sri Lanka.
