Dedicates achievement to God, parents, family

Having parents in the disciplined forces is what helped groom Beniamino Kameli in his bid to scoop top awards at his school’s Police cadet passing-out parade.

The 19-year-old Nabala Secondary School student was awarded the All Rounder Cadet prize.

Originally of Sawani Village in Nadi, Bua, Kameli dedicated his achievement to family, especially his mother Mereoni, a policewoman.

He said she had been his pillar of support in the absence of his father, a soldier currently overseas on peacekeeping duties.

“My father is away on a mission for the Republic of Fiji Military Forces in Iraq. The cadet training has taught me self-discipline,” Kameli said

Acknowledging God, Kameli said his divine help gave him the courage and confidence to be able to achieve the award.

He said while the weeks of training had been tough, the principles learned would be engraved in their hearts so they could become productive and law-abiding citizens of the country.

“My dream is to follow in my father’s footsteps by joining the military and this All Rounder award is paving a way forward towards my career path.

“I was at Holy Family Secondary School in Labasa last year and I moved to Nabala (near Seaqaqa) as I wanted to participate in the cadet,” Kameli said.

Proud mother Mrs Kameli said she was happy to see that her son had achieved one of his goals for the year.

“He is the eldest child and plans to join the military like his father,” Mrs Kameli said.
