The 21-year-old also won three other gold medals for Outstanding Science Student, Outstanding Student for Chemistry and Biology at the University of Fiji graduation ceremony in Lautoka.

He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Chemistry.

“I’m feeling so excited and I would like to thank God for giving me this opportunity and my parents for their guidance and support towards my education.

“Science is very fascinating to me. I enjoy doing science subjects and achieving this was not very hard,” he said.

Mr Joseph said his parents were supportive towards his education and without their help he would not have been able to graduate.

His father Praneel Prakash Joseph could not control his tears and said: “I appreciated whatever my son has done for me and I am proud of him.
