A high school dux award is a proud achievement for many, but for Dawi Jee of Suva Grammar School, the award revived a sense of confidence and faith in herself.

The 17-year-old also scooped the subject awards for Mathematics, Com­puter Studies, English and Geography during the school’s prizegiving cer­emony in Suva yesterday.

“I was not sure of myself and I had not expected the award,” she said.

Dawi dedicated her achievements to her fam­ily and friends who had constantly encouraged her to strive for higher results.

“My family and friends are very optimistic, so they always have very high expectations of me,” she said.

“So despite the challeng­es, their faith motivated me to keep up and make them proud.”

She is originally from South Korea and it had been difficult for her to adapt to the language when she first came to Fiji in 2011.

However, she said, with the help from her teachers and friends she was able to overcome those chal­lenges. And she sure did after scooping the English prize too.

“One should patiently keep moving forward, step by step, so no matter how difficult something is, you will eventually reach your goal,” she added.
