Five employees of the Fiji Sun accounts department yesterday graduated at the University of the South Pacific’s graduation ceremony at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.

Four graduated with Bachelor of Commerce degrees with one attaining a Post Graduate Certificate in Financial Administration and all five intend to put their learning into practice.

21-year-old Feranah Nisha who graduated with a Bachelors of Commerce in Accounting and Economics said her tough upbringing forced her to appreciate her grandparents for stepping in to raise her and her brothers.

“I had a sad childhood; my mother left us and our father and grandparents were the only one looking after me and my brothers,” Ms Nisha said.

“Then in 2013 my father passed away just when I started at USP. It was one of the toughest situations I had to deal with and to lose someone so close to my heart is just painful. I only wished that he was around to witness where I have reached with my studies.

“Our grandparents took up the responsibility of looking after us when my father passed away and today I want to dedicate my achievement to them.

“I want to thank my family and Fiji Sun for their support. I hope to put into practice what I have learnt when I get back to work and help raise the standard of service we provide.”

 

Taking heights

Atishwar Tiwari successfully attained a Post Graduate Certificate in Financial Administration saw the achievement as a challenge.

“I have been with the Fiji Sun for the past five years and I hope with what I have attained I will try to assist in lifting up the company to another level.

“I want to thank my family for their support and my workmates; I am here today because of my hard work and the support of those around me.”

Mr Tiwari hopes to further his studies and successfully complete a Masters in Business Administration in the future.

22-year-old Asnita Prakash graduated with Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting and Information System and works as a payable officer.

“I am planning to further my studies and at the same time work too. I hope to head one of the departments in the Fiji Sun and that will happen through hard work,” she said.

 

Putting theory into action
