A young woman’s dream to become a nurse and help those in rural areas is slowly becoming a reality.
Kasaya Droya, 19, shed tears of joy when she received the Dux Award during the Wainimakutu Secondary School’s prizegiving ceremony on Tuesday.
Kasaya, a science student from Nasava Village in Naitasiri, has been a boarder at the school since 2010.
Her parents, Eliki and Sereima Droya are farmers. They walked for five hours from their village on Tuesday to attend her graduation.
“My parents are farmers, and I see the struggles they go through every day and I always tell myself that as the eldest child I have to do better so that I can look after them,’’ Kasaya said.
“I see the struggle in their eyes; it’s taken a toll on their bodies but they always make sure that my siblings and I have what we need for school.”
Meanwhile, BSP microfinance manager Isikeli Taoi reminded the students that the workforce was for those who succeeded in their education and worked hard.
