“My mum always wanted me to get a gold medal right from the begin­ning and I dedicate this to my par­ents for believing in me,” Mr Singh said.

“Reaching this far was not easy be­cause I had to face a lot of challenges along the way. I had to put in a lot of time and effort to dedicate myself to my studies.

“I am a recipient of the USP Pacific Academic Excellence Scholarship and that lessened the load for my parents.

“I want to thank USP and the Vice-Chancellor for sponsoring my pro­gramme.”

“I want to thank USP for sponsor­ing my son’s education.”

Mr Singh hopes to pursue further education in the future.
