Eighteen-year-old Nishat Lal could not hide his excitement when he was named the dux of Jai Narayan College in Suva during the prizegiving yesterday.

Mr Lal, who wants to pursue a degree in civil engineering from the Auckland University in New Zealand from next year, said getting the award had always been his goal since entering the school.

“I have a passion for doing something special, unique and something new,” he said.

“That’s why I always like to stand out in the crowd and make an identity for myself. That is what I have been doing ever since I started schooling and realised its importance.”

He said he had faced a lot of struggles and competitions.

Mr Lal was also awarded the prize for scoring the highest mark in last year’s Fiji School Leaving Certificate (FSLC), Highest Science scorer nationwide, FSLC English, Biology and Chemistry award and highest in Chemistry and English in the school’s Year 13 category.

“It has always been my target to achieve this award since I entered this school. There were struggles along the way. When you receive this award, you feel that you’ve accomplished something.

“I acknowledge the hardships and challenges that I faced because they had brought me here today. I receive this award with pride,” he said.

He dedicated his achievement to his parents.

Meanwhile, chief guest and Fijian Holdings chief executive officer, Nouzab Fareed reminded students of the importance of pursuing what they want to accomplish in life.
