The father of the award winning Fijian-born recipient of the Lord Mayor of Brisbane (QLD) Graham Quirk’s Young Businessman of the Year Award had nothing but praise for his son.

Sangeet Chand’s 25-year-old son Saneil received his award in Australia earlier this year. Saneil is also the recipient of the Griffith University Outstanding Alumni Award for gaining remarkable achievements in Australia and internationally.

“As a father, I always encouraged my son that this is not the end and continue to work hard to achieve more in life,” Mr Chand told the Fiji Sun.

“I also tell my son to be thankful and never forget your birth place, your motherland Fiji,” he said.

Saneil Chand was born and raised in Korovuto, Ba.

He was educated at Gospel Primary School in Suva and Lautoka Primary School before migrating to Australia with his family in 1994.

He is also a Justice of Peace.
