Being a mother and student at the same time was never an easy task, said Litea Tikoinayau. The mother of five was admitted to the bar by Chief Justice Anthony Gates yesterday.

Mrs Tikoinayau said her journey in the law school seemed to go on forever.

“It was very difficult and it was a challenge when it came to prioritising priorities,” she said.

“Being a mother, wife and a student was a struggle for me. Sometimes when my children get sick and I have assignments to do, this was when it gets challenging.

“And being a law student, you have to work really hard.”

Mrs Tikoinayau joined the University of Fiji in 2011 to pursue her Law Course.

She then took a two-year break and was back to complete her studies in 2014 for another three years.

Currently employed at the Land Transport Authority legal department she thanked God that she had made it and she thanked her parents for their love and endless support. Mrs Tikoinayau also acknowledged her friends and classmates for all the years of struggles they had been through together.
