Miliana Gavidi left her village to study in Suva, and she promised herself that she would make her parents proud, which she did.

She did so by scoring 358/400 in her Year 12 Certificate Ex­amination.

The William Cross College student scored 100 in Maths, 92 in Physics, 91 in Chemis­try, 81 in Biology and 73 in English.

Miliana hails from Galoa Village in Bua with maternal links to Naboutini Village in Cakaudrove.

“Leaving my village to come to Suva in search of a better education opportunity was hard at first, but I knew I had to because I wanted to give my par­ents a better life that they deserve,” Miliana said.

“I want to thank my parents for their support even with the little that we have. I am a proud daugh­ter of a fisherman and making my parents proud has always been my goal.”

Studying during the pandemic was tough especially when home school­ing became the new norm.

“But that did not demotivate me. I had a goal and fulfilling it was al­ways a priority,” Miliana said.

“I am happy with my mark, but I will make sure to work harder when school starts as I plan to be in Year 13. I want to become a doctor and I know I will need to continue to get good marks.

“I was staying with my uncle’s fam­ily in Suva, and I want to thank them for their support since joining Wil­liam Cross College in Year Nine.”

Her father, Jona Mara Gavidi said his daughter was hardworking.

“I am proud of my daughter’s achievement, and I know that she will go a long way. I have encouraged my daughter to continue to work hard so that she can get a toppers scholarship,” Mr Gavidi said.

“Getting a toppers scholarship will mean that my daughter will not have to worry about anything else but studying hard. My daughter is some­one who puts others first before her­self and I am proud to call her my daughter.”

Her favourite subject is Maths.
