“I used to wake up as early as around 4am to study. My teachers always supported me and family support was good as well,” said Year 11 pupil Eseta Biu

Year 11 pupil Eseta Biu of Jasper Williams High School in Lautoka yesterday fulfilled the promise she made to her teachers.

While receiving her award at the school’s annual prize giving ceremony said she never let her disability affect her school work.

The 17-year-old underwent surgery in 2016 in Hawaii to get prosthetic legs.

“When I came to school after my surgery my teachers were worried and used to ask me whether I would be able to cope with my school work,” Eseta said.

“I worked hard and promised my teachers that I would not let my disability affect my studies.

“I used to wake up as early as around 4am to study. My teachers always supported me and family support was good as well.”

Eseta received the Student of the Year, Best Arts Student and Principal’s Award for the Year 11 level.

Her subjects are English, Mathematics, Accounting, Economics and Computer Studies.

Eseta plans to become an accountant in future.
