Top Graduate Looks to Provide Best Service To Public
The University of Fiji’s best overall Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) graduate, Avneel Chandra, says he will now focus on providing the best service for all Fijians.
The 26-year-old made the comment during an interview with the Fiji Sun after receiving his MBBS degree during the university’s graduation ceremony at Saweni Campus in Lautoka yesterday.
Apart from his degree, Mr Chandra was also awarded five gold medals during the ceremony.
He said it was a happy moment for him because all his sacrifice, hard work, including being away from his family, had paid off.
“This has been a great six years for me because I have been away from home and I dedicate my achievements to my family and my grandparents, who are at home in Labasa,” Mr Chandra said.
“It is all of their hard work and sacrifices that kept me motivated and ensured that I stayed disciplined and worked hard towards achieving what I have achieved today.”
He said the biggest challenge that he went through was seeing his parents in Labasa at least once or twice a year.
“This year I haven’t even been home, so I am looking forward now after my graduation,” he said. Mr Chandra acknowledged his friends at the university for being his family away from home.
