She dedicates her success to parents

Eighteen-year-old Elesi Mole defied all odds to claim the dux award during the Reverend Thomas Baker Memorial School’s prizegiving ceremony at Navatusila, Nadroga, on Thursday.

Despite the limited access to school resources, Elesi said she was glad she came out successful.

“Being born and bred in the highlands of Viti Levu where transportation is difficult, resource is scarce, limited access to electrical power and proper water supply did not deter me from working hard and achieving my lifetime dream of completing secondary education,” an excited Elesi said.

“Behind all the difficult times and struggles I faced during my secondary life, I’m so happy I managed to complete my studies with flying colours.”

She said spiritual empowerment, dedication and hard work enabled her to break through all barriers.

“Scarcity is not a hindrance to an achievement but rather a stepping stone to attaining greater things in life.”

She was also awarded for scoring the school’s highest mark in last year’s Fiji School Leaving Certificate (FSLC) examination.

Elesi hopes to join the Fiji National University (FNU) next year and study to join the teaching profession. She dedicates her achievement to her parents who she said have been a driving factor through her school years.
