Christmas came early for Diloko Bulinaceva this year.

Yesterday, she graduated with a degree in Public Health from the Fiji National University’s Labasa Campus. The 27-year-old, accompanied by her three-week-old son was proud to hold her degree.

“I was given a Christmas gift earlier this year as I gave birth to my son three weeks ago, and a few days before Christmas I graduated with my degree in public health,” she said.

“These are the best Christmas gifts I could ever get. I am proud of what I have achieved. This has been a challenging course.

“It was through an aunt of mine, who was a nurse, that inspired me to become a nurse.

“I graduated with my diploma in nursing in 2014 and have been serving at the Labasa Health Centre ever since and started pursuing my degree last year,” she said.

Mrs Bulinaceva acknowledged the support from her husband and family.

“My husband and my son were very supportive towards my studies, I never thought that I would complete my studies because I had to balance school with work and family time,” she said.

“It was challenging because we are a young couple and I would like to acknowledge my husband for his trust and being supportive towards me to pursue my studies.”

She also acknowledged her parents for their endless support and dedication. Edited by Naisa Koroi
