STAYING away from family for three years was the sacrifice I had to make.

This was the sentiment of Elizabeth Osifelo who won the best outstanding student award at the USP’s 18th Journalism awards event held at the Laucala campus last night.

Osifelo, originally from the Solomon Islands, shared how she missed her family and husband who are back in her home country.

She said she was always reminded that no matter how far her family was, she was still close to a Pacific family at USP.

The 34-year-old said she chose to study at USP because it was a regional organisation closer to her home and she felt that this was the best choice for her.

Osifelo plans to return to her country after she graduates.

She said she would see what prospects unfold in the Solomon Islands when she returns, however, she did aspire to join a media organisation there.
