In or­der to make it big in the world you need to have a big dream. These were sen­ti­ments shared by Labasa Mus­lim Col­lege Ju­nior Dux re­cip­i­ent, Mo­hammed Tazdeeq Ali.

The 17-year-old of Bu­calevu, Labasa, also re­ceived the best over­all stu­dent award from Year 9 to Year 13 in math­e­mat­ics, English, com­puter and ac­count­ing. The Year 12 stu­dent comes from a hum­ble back­ground; his fa­ther is a ca­sual labourer, while his mother stays at home, but he has a dream to take care of his fam­ily in the fu­ture. “I see how much my par­ents have given up a lot to give me an ed­u­ca­tion and see that I have the op­por­tu­nity like they never had in their time,” he said. “My par­ents have been my in­spi­ra­tion and mo­ti­va­tion to keep on do­ing my best. This is my sec­ond last year here in high school and I look for­ward to at­tend­ing ter­tiary, go out into the big­ger world and reach my full po­ten­tial. “My fam­ily has al­ways put me first and they will al­ways come first for me.” Dad Mo­hammed Tauwab Ali said: “Par­ents should al­ways sup­port their chil­dren and see that they get the best.

“I be­lieve that chil­dren are a gift from God and with the right up­bring­ing, they can be pro­duc­tive mem­bers of so­ci­ety and fu­ture lead­ers of our coun­try.” Edited by Naisa Koroi
