2020 DAV Girls College dux Verenaisi Rabulusau

Verenaisi Rabulusau ticked her biggest yet achievement yet on her ‘to-do-list’ when she was announced the 2020 dux of DAV Girls College yesterday.

The ambitious Serua lass said, she wished that she shared the moment with her late father who died in Brisbane, Australia, this year.

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, it was heartbreaking that she couldn’t see him for the last time but it has taken every inch of courage for her to continue to fulfil her ‘to-do-list’.

“I was always determined to keep excelling in school so I could make my parents proud and I did it,” the 18-year-old said.

Next on her list is to become a doctor. While she’s a candidate for the National Topper’s Scholarship Award, it does not directly fund MBBS degrees, but she has already thought of a plan, she said optimistically.

“So I will instead get into the Medical Laboratory Science program at the Fiji National University,” she said.

“I will graduate, work and then cross credit into the MBBS programme where I will study hard to become a doctor.”

Her mother, Taina, said: “I took her phone away from the beginning of this year because I wanted her to really focus on her studies.

“It has all paid off when I saw her walk up to get her prizes.

“We are thankful to God for everything.”

Verenaisi attained the Best Science student award, top subject student in English, Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

She also received the award for Highest Aggregate Student in Year 12 and the Dux award.
