Rikiyaz Ali dreams of becom­ing an architect and helping build hospitals here.

The 18-year-old was presented the outstanding student award dur­ing the Nasinu Muslim College prizegiving ceremony yesterday.

“I want to study in Australia and then come to Fiji and fulfil my dreams,” he said.

“I want to help the people of Fiji in terms of providing free hospital services.”

Rikiyaz took technical science, which he enjoyed, and has no re­grets about his subject combina­tion.

“I dedicate this award to my par­ents because they have always sup­ported me,” he said.

“My parents have always under­stood my problems and if they could they always gave me advice, which led me in winning this award.”

Rikiyaz also acknowledged the principal for being an inspiration.

“Our principal is a very hard­working and dedicated woman and I want to be like her in life,” the 18-year-old said.

His mother, Shabina Bibi, said she was proud of his son’s achievement and prays that his academic success would continue.

SCHOOL DUX

Meanwhile, Abdul Muzammil Ahmed was named dux of Suva Muslim College.

The 18-year-old student acknowl­edged his parents for being a source of inspiration and motivation.

“I grew up in poverty so I want to change my family’s life by having a white-collar job,” Abdul said.

“The only reason I am studying is to support my parents.”

His mother, Shamshad Bi, said: “He worked very hard and our sup­port was there for him all the time.”
