Lau­toka busi­ness­man, Mo­hammed Tazim, says he is proud of his sis­ter.

His sis­ter, Obaida Hus­sain, grad­u­ated with a Mas­ters in Ed­u­ca­tion at the Univer­sity of the South Pa­cific yes­ter­day.

“This is the high­est ever qual­i­fi­ca­tion in our gen­er­a­tion of fam­i­lies,” Mr Tazim said. Mr Tazim trav­elled all the way from Lau­toka with his fam­ily to sup­port Mrs Hus­sain. She said they were bought up by a sin­gle par­ent mother, and they had to sac­ri­fice and go through a lot of strug­gle. Mrs Hus­sain, who teaches at Noco Sec­ondary School, was over­joyed.

She re­lieved the sac­ri­fices and chal­lenges they went through. It was worth it in the end, she added. “My fam­ily has been very sup­port­ive and that’s why I’m here to­day,” she said. Hus­band Kizwan Hus­sain said it was just an amaz­ing feel­ing and a great mo­ment for him. Mrs Hus­sain, a mother of two, said she wished to fur­ther her stud­ies in the fu­ture.
