Grace Ali owes much of what she has achieved so far to her parents.

Last week she was inducted as head­girl of Dilkusha Girls School, near the Suva end of the Rewa Bridge.

Grace, along with two deputies and 24 prefects, will lead over 900 girls who attend Dilkusha Girls.

She thanked her parents, Virisila and Zulfikar Ali, for their support and generosity towards her quest for education.

“Mum and Dad, words can never express what you both have done for me. Thank you for your kindness and generosity,” Grace said.

Grace also acknowledged Adi Le­wasau Ruci Neomai who was the 2017 Dilkusha Girls School headgirl.

“I learnt from Adi Lewasau. She taught me a lot. She has been very supportive and I’m taking on from where she left, Grace said.”

Grace was deputy headgirl last year.

She listed understanding as one of the qualities of good leadership.

“You have to be obedient to your teachers and as a leader, you also have to perform,” Grace said.

Adi Ana Tawake, a resident at the Dilkusha Home since she was three months old was also inducted as a prefect.

She was stoked about the new chal­lenge.

For Adi Ana, leadership meant guiding people to make the right de­cision and to make sure they don’t fall in the wrong path.

“I want to grow up to be an inde­pendent person, achieve my dream of becoming a journalist,” she said.

She thanked God for her achieve­ment. She acknowledged the undy­ing support of the staff at the Dilku­sha Home – in particular Deaconess Olivia, Deaconess Leba and Deacon­ess Sala.

Chief guest at the induction was an old girl and University of the South Pacific lecturer Dr Litea Meo Sewa­bu.
