PRICILLA Ritova wants her children to excel in their studies and get good jobs.
Ms Ritova wants them to follow in her footsteps after she graduated from the professional diploma in business leadership program at the University of the South Pacific's Labasa Campus on Friday.
"This is an exciting moment for me and I am happy that my two children are here to see me graduate," she said.
"Like any other mother, I only wish for one thing and that is to see them excel in their studies and get good jobs.
"My achievement today is attributed to them because of their support and sacrifice. There are times when I leave them at home and go out to study and I thank them for being understanding."
Ms Ritova also paid tribute to her mother for supporting her.
"I couldn't have achieved this today if it wasn't for my family. I really would love to see my children graduate and end up somewhere good in life.
"This is what a mother longs for because no parent would want to see her child become unsuccessful in life."
