Dux of Sathya Sai School in Lautoka, Ashna Priya Ku­mar thanked her grandpar­ents yesterday when she scooped the Dux and Student of the Year awards at the school’s prize giving ceremony in Lautoka.

She also received a Distinction in the Fiji Mathematics Competition and High Distinction in the Aus­tralian Mathematics Competition.

She was also awarded for her at­tendance in school.

Ms Kumar said: “I have been stay­ing with my grandparents ever since I started kindergarten and they have been supporting me along with my uncle Amrit Chand.

“My grandfather who is a sugar­cane farmer by profession, worked hard in the field to support me and provide the right environment for me to study.”

Her grandfather, Amresh Chand said that Ashna had been a hard­working for so many years and has finally reaped the fruit of her work.

“We are really proud of her and we wish her well in future. Our blessings are with her,” he said.

Ashna plans to become an oncolo­gist, a doctor who treats cancer.

“I want to join this profession be­cause I have read about different types of cancer that exists as Fiji has been observing Pinktober and Movember,” Ms Chand said.

“I want to help those people who are suffering with cancer and give them hope in life.”

She will be joining Drasa Second­ary School from next year.
