Neekith Neel Prasad says overcoming many obstacles to pursue and obtain a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery has paid off.

This is after he graduated last week during the University of Fiji graduation at the Saweni, Lautoka campus.

Mr Prasad is originally from Navua and had received a gold medal for most outstanding student in paediatrics last week.

 

“It has been six years of focus on work and a very hard journey for me since I have been renting here while my parents and family are staying in Navua.”

“I used to stay here by myself and I gave up my social life to balance everything including my personal life as well,” he said.

“I faced a lot of challenges like we did not have the textbooks so we just studied with electronic copies plus exams were hectic so it was challenging, but my parents always encouraged me to be committed to my study.”

 

He said receiving a gold medal during the University of Fiji graduation was a culmination of his sacrifices and stern advice from his parents to not be led astray.

He will be completing his two-year internship at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital and spend a few years in Fiji’s medical sector before pursuing further studies abroad.
