The saying ‘Education should bring to light the ideal of the individual’ has come true for 53-year-old Marica Seniloli Hussain.

The Suva grandmother, who is originally from Nairai, Lomaiviti, was among 31 lawyers who were admitted to the Bar at the High Court in Suva yesterday.

Mrs Hussain said the struggles of the last six years had paid off.

“Being a mother and studying has been very rewarding,” she said.

She has five children and three grandchildren.

Her husband Peter and daughters Kaylela and Louchrisha were part of the admission ceremony.

“I’m glad that I came back to the classroom environment when my children are older when they could do things for themselves. It is rewarding in the sense that they’ve been supportive right throughout and I’m thankful for that.

“My six years of study has been one that was very hard, but no one should ever give up whenever obstacles came their way.

“My greatest pillar of strength has been my husband.

“He was there through thick and thin. He was there when the days were down for me and I’m thankful for his support,” she said.

Mrs Hussain, while looking for law firm to join, is an inspiration to Fijians, especially women.

“To aspiring mums, never give up whenever a door is shut on you. Always know that the Lord will be on your side and you do the right things,” she said.
