Fane Mouga Kasa said working as a clerk at the Nadi Magistrates Court and then later as a client information officer at the Legal Aid Commission sparked her passion for law.

“So that transition combined with the passion plus seeing lawyers every day and I also learned a lot from experi- ence. I would say time management is the key. If you don’t manage your time wisely, your priorities, you won’t be able to achieve that well,” she said.

The thirty-year-old mother of one said this led her to resign from her full-time job in 2018 and enrol in the Bachelor of Laws program at the University of Fiji.

Ms Kasa graduated on Friday and was also awarded a gold medal for outstanding student in law.

“It hasn’t been easy coming this far, but it wouldn’t be possible without the almighty God I serve as well as my parents, step-parents and husband,” she said.

“I have a very supportive family base and I can say that I am very lucky to have come this far, if it hadn’t been for their support as a mum and as a wife, I wouldn’t be here.”

She said it took four years to complete the program and six months for her Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice Programme and she would now do her placement before she is admitted to the bar where she would be issued a practicing certificate.

“There were a lot of challenges, especially with my school fees but I thank my family for always being there and helping me out also. It’s not easy being a mom. I have to set aside time for my daughter as well so there were a lot of sleepless nights, but it’s nothing new to me now,” she said.

She said she planned to practise for three years as a lawyer before pursuing a Master of Laws.

Proud Husband, Fabiano Rogovakalali said he was grateful that his wife’s years of struggle finally came to fruition.

“Even though we faced hardships, I supported her always and now she’s completed her studies, I’m thankful to my wife for her achievement and she achieved a high standard where she got a Gold medal,” he said.
