WHEN it comes to age, gender and ethnicity education breaks all barriers and anyone can strive to achieve higher education at any time in their lives.

These were the words of Sainiana Radrodro who graduated from the University of the South Pacific yesterday with her Bachelors of Laws on Thursday.

Ms Radrodro graduated along side her son Tevita Cagilaba and she said it all has been worth it.

“We have come this far and we have proven that it can be done as long as you are inspired and know there is something at the end of the road you need to keep going,” she said.

She acknowledged God because she said her achievement was only made possible through his Grace.

“If it wasn’t for him I know personally I would not be here, the last seven years have been full of challenges and I would like to thank God for his everlasting love,” she said.

“I would also like to thank my husband because he’s been my pillar of strength and for the last seven years he was the man that stood beside me.”

She said her source of inspiration were her children and she wanted to prove to them that anything was possible. Mr Cagilaba said studying along side his mother has been a worthwhile experience.

“I don’t think it has fully sunk in yet I am very grateful and I am so blessed but for me personal not only is it an achievement for me but also for my family,” he said
