Jagrutiben Patel could not hold back her emotions when her son graduated yesterday.

19-year-old Kishan Patel, graduated with a Certificate in Fundamentals of Graphics Design and a Certificate in Advanced Graphics Design from the Fiji Vocational and Technical Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities at Brown Street in Suva.

“I am always worried about my son’s future and always wondering what he would become,” she said.

“But, I am now relieved that my son will become good graphic designer.”

Dux award winner 18-year-old Rahul Shankar was surprised when his name was called out during the graduation ceremony.

“I am feeling so happy to receive the Dux Award.

“I would like to thank God and my parents for their support towards my education.

“They are the reason I am here today.

I thought I would never become anything in my life,” he said.

“I only attended Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Primary School up till Year Eight.

“I then dropped out because I did not pass any of my subjects.

“My parents then came to know about the Fiji Vocational and Technical Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities, I then joined this vocational school and took computer studies.”

Thirty-seven students graduated from the centre.

Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Mereseini Vuniwaqa also celebrated International Persons Day for Persons with the graduates.
