We Shall Conquer
Hearing impaired valedictorian Epeli Vualili delivered a moving opening speech in light of the aftermath of the Cyclone Winston during the University of the South Pacific graduation at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.
“Individually there isn’t much we can do, but together as a nation, as Fijians ‘we are stronger than Winston; we shall rise; we shall rebuild; we shall conquer’.”
The 30-year-old from Bua who graduated with a Diploma in Information Technology was among the 1606 students who take on another chapter in their life.
“We’ve finally made it; this is the day we were dreaming off and the culmination of all the hard work, many hours of anxiety and stress and of course the sleepless nights.
“Our dreams and aspirations to pursue quality education at the University of the South Pacific has finally paid off. It has been a humbling yet exciting experience. At first it was kind a difficult for me but then I started to adapt to the teaching environment; I hope to further my studies with USP till I successfully complete my Masters,” he said.
