Two newly elected heads of Seaqaqa Central College in Macuata who are from sugarcane farming backgrounds both aim to change the lives of their parents.

Head Girl Krishni Singh is originally from Sevacagi Village, while Head Boy Abdul Mozid Khan is from Tikilo Village in Seaqaqa.

Both are 18 years old. They were surprised to be badged by the Assistant Minister for Sugar, George Vegnathan.

Krishni and Abdul are classmates and both aspire to become chartered accountants.

“We are four siblings and I am the only daughter in the family,” Krishni said.

“It has always been my father’s dream to see me become the head girl of the school and this is indeed a proud moment for us.”

She said her father was glad that she became the first from their village to be inducted as a head girl.

Similar sentiments were shared by Abdul who said that he was also the first from his village to become a head boy.

“My father who is a sugarcane farmer will be so happy,” the youngest of three siblings said.

“I want to help my parents live a better life because over the years I have seen them struggling under the hot sun and rain.”
