Set a realistic goal for yourself and be prepared to work hard, and consistently work to achieve it.

These were the words of Monika Devi after she was named Dux of Sabeto College yesterday in Nadi.

“The strongest factor to success is self-esteem – believing you can do it, believing you deserve it, believing you will get it,” she said.

“During the year I have struggled through many difficulties and challenges. When I sat in this hall, this year, little did I know what a long journey it would be, and how much I would learn about.

“I would like to thank my loving parents who are always with me and have encouraged me through the long and challenging journey and the dedicated staff of Sabeto College for their professional support and assistance.”

Mum Sanjana Devi was ecstatic and filled of pride when her daughter was presented the award.

“Although we faced financial difficulties because my husband was the only breadwinner of the family, I encouraged my three children to work hard since their dad was a casual laborer,” she said.

The Minister for Education, Mahendra Reddy, was chief guest.
