Solo parent and domestic violence survivor, Renuka Narayan, is a proud mother after successfully achieving her dream of obtaining a qualification.

Ms Narayan of Ba graduated on Thursday with a qualification in pastry bakery and culinary dishes from the Fiji Muslim League’s Makoi Women’s Vocational Training Centre in Nasinu.

She graduated with 55 other women.

She said, “If you want light to come into your life, you need to stand where it is shining and success is the sum of small efforts repeated, day in and day out.”

Having raised her 13-year-old daughter on her own, Ms Narayan said she withstood the challenges of being a single parent.

“I have gone through many hardships in my life. I fell in love with the wrong person and got punched nearly every day. I was not valued as a wife,” she recounted of her experience.

Ms Narayan who used to work for S Nagindas, is currently unemployed.

She took the challenge to move forward, complete her education and be independent.

She thanked the Fiji Muslim League for running such organisations where under privileged women can get a better and brighter future.

Her advice, “be strong and move forward, plan for the future and keep moving forward in life.”
