Nikhat Nilufa Khan, a graduate in Bachelor of Science (Environmental Science) was excited and felt relieved after graduating from the University of the South Pacific yesterday.

The 22-year-old said she started her university studies in 2015.

“I am currently working and enrolled in a post graduate diploma in science,” Ms Khan said.

She said she hopes to finish her postgraduate and do her further studies in masters in science.

“I would like to tell everyone that once you get a degree, it is not over yet. It is uncertain you get a white collar job.

“It is always good to create your own job and know of the surrounding opportunities, especially for our youths. They may laugh on how they got white collar jobs because they have a certain mentality that when you have a degree, you can only work in an office and they give less priority to climate change and agriculture, so these fields are more lucrative.”

She said she hopes that the youths would move towards those fields.
