Fiji National University graduate Ajit Ajay Kumar has followed in the footsteps of his parents.

Mr Kumar, 20, of Ba, graduated with a Higher Education Diploma in Primary Teaching in Lautoka yesterday.

Mr Kumar’s father, Ajay Kumar, is a head teacher at Moto Sanatan Primary School in Ba.

His mother, Sushil Lata Kumar, is a teacher at the same school.

“I was inspired to be a teacher because my parents are doing a noble task of educating children and I also wanted to do it too,” Mr Kumar said.

“My inspiration during the two-year journey has been my parents and being the eldest in the family, all eyes were on me to make them proud

“Rarely it is seen of children to follow in the footsteps of their parents because everyone wants to be in a different field of work.

“I believed that if I become a teacher, it will not only be a proud moment for my parents but will also inspire youths to follow in their parents’ footsteps.”

He thanked his parents for their support during his studies.

Proud father, Ajay Kumar, ran out of words to describe his happiness.

“It is indeed a proud moment for me because my son was adamant on his vision to be an educator like us and he has done it,” Mr Ajay said.

“We now have three teachers in the family and seeing my son’s vision, my younger daughter has also enrolled herself at FNU Lautoka Campus for the same programme,” he said.
