Despite the absence of his parents dur­ing his journey to complete his stud­ies, Apisai Tavakia, graduated with a Certificate in Cookery at the Nabua Sana­tan College grounds on Monday.

Being the youngest of five siblings, Mr Ta­vakia said his hard work had finally paid off.

“I took up this course because I like cook­ing and I’m the only one in the family taking up a course in this kind of field and I didn’t really want to take up any other field,” said the 22-year-old from Sabeto, Nadi

“I enjoy learning things like how to pre­pare meals so I encourage other young peo­ple to take up this field and it’s a great field to pursue, but my plan after this is to try and work for one of the hotels or maybe go overseas.”

Meanwhile elder sister Sereima Gavidi said she was grateful for her younger broth­er’s accomplishment.

“Both our parents are deceased so it’s a big achievement for him after one year of sac­rificing, I have seen today the fruits of his labour when he received his certificate.

“I believe that this is the Lord’s reward to Apisai for all his hard work and I am grateful to the Lord for his provision, because some­thing that I have wanted him to achieve for a long time has finally happened,” she said.
