Ashley gets her motivation from her grandparents who continue to give her advice.

Parents Rodney Chand and Moreen Chand said Ashley’s achievments have been well deserved and it has created a competitive feeling with her brothers.

The Ministry of Education could not confirm whether Ashley had scored the highest mark in Fiji.

Director Exams Seci Waqabaca said they had closed Year 10 provisional results and there were outstanding issues to settle from compassionate/aggregate and recount/ re-mark before the ministry could confirm.
