Jah­nisha Hus­sein wants to be­come a suc­cess­ful doc­tor who can pro­vide her par­ents a bet­ter lifestyle. The Year 13 stu­dent was named Dux of Dud­ley High School dur­ing the prize­giv­ing cer­e­mony on Wed­nes­day.

“We’re not re­ally fi­nan­cially sta­ble, so I just want to achieve a sta­ble and com­fort­able lifestyle for my par­ents,” she said. “My par­ents mo­ti­vated me and I re­ally want to work hard so I can also sup­port them.” She says her chal­lenge to study at and bal­ance time in look­ter her three younger sib­lings.

“I big­gest was night her ing af­ter did not re­ally ex­pect it, but I was think­ing that I was one of the can­di­dates,” she said. She was the top stu­dent in her class last year and scored 365/400 this year in the Fiji Sev­enth Form Ex­am­i­na­tion. She said it was through her fam­ily and rel­a­tives’ pos­i­tive words of en­cour­age­ment that pushed her to ex­cel.

De­spite the strug­gle to con­stantly come to school on time, the young Dux from Lami said her de­ter­mi­na­tion to suc­ceed pushed her. Edited by Naisa Koroi
