A former school teacher and radio announcer, Rohit Sharma, has no regrets about his sacrifices to be a FijiFirst party candidate in the 2018 General Election.

The 39-year-old originally from Namara, Labasa, secured a seat in the Parliament.

The father-of-two children lives at Nakasi, Nasinu and said he was overwhelmed to be able to secure a seat after the party’s victory in this year’s election.

“I spent 19 years in teaching career and working as a radio announcer and I had to resign last month before joining politics,” Mr Sharma said.

“Letting go of what I was passionate about wasn’t easy, but I looked at a greater picture for the future of our nation.

“Being a head of department for physical education made me realise that I can contribute a lot towards youth development and sports development.

“When I will be in the Parliament, if given the opportunity, I will press more on social issues and see how we can improve lives of more people in Fiji,” he said.

“The Fiji First Government has done a lot for four years and I am excited to be part of them in the coming four years.”
