Jai Narayan College (JNC), awarded its 2016 dux to Kajol Rania Singh.

Kajol was also presented with the school cup, a DV Masters Plaque and a Tacirua Company cheque of $500.

“The school is like a magnet for the greatest minds in Fiji,” she said.

“So it’s kind of disheartening that after winning an award you don’t get recognition sometimes and so that is what pushed me.”

She believes that her award was won through hard work, dedication and spending lots of time sitting at a desk and reading through the notes.

“My mother is a teacher, so I was raised in quite a strict household, but my dad is pretty loving and they have both spoilt me a lot,” she said.

Kajol said her parents had always been supportive towards her academics.

“The school is a very good environment, but it’s just that I’ve always been the underdog and I never thought that I could win this award,” she said.

She said she did not know about it until the last moment.

“I was so shocked and it was like my heart was beating out of my chest,” she said.

Her family plans to move to Australia next month and she hopes to pursue a career in the field of radiology.

Kajol is the youngest in the family with an older brother who is currently in his fifth year at the Fiji School of Medicine.

Another student, Neekil Samut, was awarded the school’s Year 13 Outstanding Achievers Award in English, Maths, Computer Studies and Introduction to Technology.

He said he was motivated to work hard this year when he had received major results last year.

“I told myself that if I worked hard then I can achieve bigger things. My mother has never restricted me from using my phone or the social media. She always tells me to use it responsibly,” he said.

He aspires to become a pilot one day.
