A medical consultant is the latest United Kingdom’s Chevening Scholarship re­cipient. Sharon Biribo has been accepted to the world-renowned London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine on a full schol­arship programme in Medical Mi­crobiology.

Ms Biribo chose the university be­cause it’s the world leader in devel­oping medicine to tackle tropical diseases prevalent in Fiji and the Pacific region.

She currently works as the Re­search Officer for Capacity Build­ing and Projects for the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.

Ms Biribo is looking forward to the opportunity to network and learn from the different experts in the field. She is also looking to make life-long friendships, col­leagues and collaborations.

The British High Commissioner to Fiji and Head of the South Pa­cific Network, Melanie Hopkins, when presenting the award to Ms Biribo, said it was an important in­vestment to both her and the Fijian Government, and her time there should be life-changing and career defining.
