Fijian scoops university awards

BA man Hamish Mishra has done Fijians proud once again, having scooped a combined degree in a five-year program for Bachelor of Law with Honours and a Bachelor of Business with distinction from the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia.

For those who might not be familiar with the name Hamish Mishra, back in 2008, when he was just over 17 years of age, he was named on an exclusive list of Australian school leavers set to receive the "Premiers Award" in New South Wales.

Following that achievement, Mr Mishra held nothing back and indeed endeavoured further to add more achievements to the name he had already made a name for himself.

"My parents both arrived in Australia from a very young age with nothing. They strived in building to provide myself and my sister with the opportunity to accomplish great things and there was no reason for me not to do the same," Mr Mishra said yesterday.

"I feel extremely privileged and lucky to have had the support and opportunity to flourish and accomplish what I have today off their achievements."
