Asinate Koroi took a step closer to her dream to be a lawyer after scoring 360 out of 400 in her Fiji School Leaving Certificate (FSLC) Examination.

The FSLC provisional results were released yesterday.

The 17-year-old hugged her mother as soon as she saw her results and jumped with joy.

She hails from Levukaigau Village in Gau and has maternal links to Nukuloa Village in Gau. She is the second eldest of five siblings.

Asinate attended Dudley High School.

“The marks I got were higher than what I expected and I am so happy. Getting these marks means I can finally study business law,” Asinate said.

“My target was 300 and getting more than my target mark feels so good. I sacrificed a lot when I was studying and it has finally paid off.”

Asinate dedicated her achievement to her teachers, parents and friends who never gave up on her.

“No one in my family is a lawyer and I want to be the first. We have a lot of doctors in the family and I want to do something different,” she said.

“I sacrificed social media and spending time with my friends so that I can study hard and reach my target and it was worth it.

“I plan to study at the University of the South Pacific next year, which means I am getting closer to my dream of becoming a lawyer.”

Her mother, Taina Koroi, said she was happy with her daughter’s achievement and would stand by her daughter in whatever career she chose.
