For nineteen-year-old Harshika Raju, her life is all about solving puzzles and she adores numbers.

So, she decided to enrol at the Fiji National University (FNU) to pursue a Bachelor of Education Secondary (Mathematics and Physics).

The former Lautoka Central College student said sharing knowledge was her passion and she hopes to mold young minds and future leaders after graduating.

“I want to make a difference and be memorable in the lives of young people. To have them look back in years to come and remember me as their mentor, the one who instilled in them the love for numbers,” said Raju.

“I remember my mathematics teacher who showed me the importance of this subject in everyday life.

“Since FNU is a highly recognised university, I decided to pursue my studies here and receive the highest quality of education I need to become a teacher.

“I want to develop confidence in students in their mathematics abilities. I want to impart skills that I currently use and make it easy to remember by turning mathematics rules into chants that students can easily comprehend.”

According to Ms Raju, mathematics develops the thinking ability of an individual, as solving a problem requires one to think of a whole coherent process.

With the aim to be an exceptional mathematics teacher, Ms Raju is already working on a plan to make mathematics fun and easy to understand.

She also plans to further her education with FNU after gaining good teaching experience.
