Never lose focus of your goals and eventually you will achieve them, says Jena Khatri, the Dux of Gospel Primary School.

Apart from the Dux prize, Jena received the subject awards for Mathematics, Healthy Living, Social Studies and Basic Science during the school’s prizegiving ceremony yesterday.

“Always be clear on what your goal is and, no matter what difficulties you face, just go for it and make your parents proud,” she said.

The 14-year-old said her greatest challenge in the build-up to winning this award was to remain focused during trying times.

“There was a lot of competition in our class and at times I just wanted to give up,” Jena said.

“However, my mum kept motivating me, reminding me of my goals and I am so happy I have made her proud.”

Jena scored 476/500 in the Fiji Year 8 Examinations.

She attributed her success to parents, Nilesh and Vandana Khatri, for their guidance and support.

Her ambition in life is to pursue further studies in astronomy and mathematics after completing high school.
