Nanisimere Vuki Rakata, 18, yesterday became the first in her family to become dux.

The Sacred Heart College Year 13 student was in tears when she walked to receive her award during the school’s annual prize-giving ceremony in Suva yesterday.

Nanisimere also won the vice-principal’s academic awards in English, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. She also scored the highest mark in the Fiji Year 12 Certificate Examination.

She received the certificate of recognition for senior prefect, and Year 13 first prize awards.

The youngest of five siblings, Nanisimere said her awards were dedicated to her family who had pushed her to the maximum level to study.

She said her parents have provided her with all the things she had asked for and in return her trophies were her present to her parents for their belief and support in her.

“It was a proud moment for me and my family when I learned I will be receiving the dux award. My parents were overjoyed as well as my siblings as I am the first in the family to receive the award.

“It would not have been possible without the support and motivation from my family. They have sacrificed a lot for my better education and I want to make them more proud in the future. Although I have not thought of what I want to do in my further education but I know they will be proud of my decisions,” Nanisimere said.
