THE sacrifice and hard work of almost a decade of being away from home has paid off for Mandvi and Namrata Singh who were among 28 new lawyers that were admitted to the Bar at the High Court in Suva yesterday.

At the age of 24, the twin sisters believe that young people can achieve any dreams for as long as the heart and the mind were willing.

The daughter of business tycoon Charan Jeath Singh thanked their parents, relatives and God for the support that took them to the admission Bar at the High Court in Suva.

Namrata said the young people in Fiji had a lot of potential to achieve big dreams.

"It's not about the situation that you face but it is about your determination and the willingness of the heart and mind to achieve your dreams that matters.

"My sister and I are now lawyers and accountants as well and we were able to achieve that from working hard.

"Young people need to work hard, remain focused, be disciplined and believe in yourself that you can achieve your dreams. That is a positive attitude and don't let your situation let you down from achieving your plans," Namrata said.

The sisters plan to work with their dad in running of their business around Fiji.

"The business has grown so much and we will help our parents with the operation of the various businesses around the country.

"We are happy to be part of the group that were admitted to the Bar and I look forward to practising in court houses," Namrata said.

Her twin sister, Mandvi will leave for New Zealand to work as an accountant. The two plan to take over the business when their dad retires.
