A school Dux says she wants to be an inspiration to her younger brother.

Sheenal Kumar, 14, of Naduna, Labasa, laid the challenge on herself yesterday after she walked away with the school’s highest award during the Tamavua Primary Schools prizegiving yesterday.

The Year Eight student took home four certificates and trophies.

“I feel proud of myself that I made my parent’s dream come true and that is what I want to teach my brother so when he goes to Year Eight, he can bring home the dux trophy again,” she said.

“I dedicate my award to my hardworking parents who have always supported me with my academic works and my teachers who have helped me whenever I was not sure of anything in my assignment.”

Her father, Rakesh Kumar, 37, said: “Usually I hear people praise their sons, but I am a proud father of a daughter who achieved so much at a very young age.

“As parents, we have always stood by our children and I will continue to support and assist her throughout her secondary school and further more to university as well.”

Sheenal’s brother, a Year One student of Tamavua Primary School, Rayush Kumar, 7, said he wants to do well like his sister.

“She is my role model and I want to show her that I will be high achiever too, just like her,” he said.
