After graduating from the Fiji National University yester­day, one graduate is now planning on opening up his own engine repairing busi­ness.

Kaushik Kaushal Deo, who was one of the students who graduated from FNU’s Col­lege of Engineering, Sci­ence and Technology, took home a Certificate III I Au­tomotive Engineering.

Now, thanks to a $1000 grant from Government’s Young Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES), he is plan­ning on opening his busi­ness in Samabula, Suva called Viper Veel and begin operations next month.

“I applied for the YES scheme last year Septem­ber and it got approved this year around October,” the 19-year-old said.

He said he was he was happy because he was now going to be following in his father’s footsteps.

“Sometimes I used to get late for my exams because my car used to break down so I did this course to be able to repair my car when­ever needed,” he said.

“I had to ask my friends for help when there was a breakdown in my car to reach exams faster.”

He said is thinking of pro­ceeding further with his studies. He dedicated his success to his parents and credited their support and motivation.
