Being raised by a single parent did not deter Felix Singh’s dream to become a legal eagle someday.
Singh was among the twenty-seven barristers that were admitted to the bar in Suva yesterday.
Singh says it was his strong family support and his struggles in life that enabled him to work hard to be able to practice law in the country.
“When I first started work in the early 90s, I was in class 6, I use to cut grass for holiday job, I use to get that for pocket money and use that for my school fees and all, then later on I moved up to cutting sugarcane and ever since then I use to get holiday job at courts.”
Moving from different careers wasn’t easy but it was what lead Singh to make the decision to look for a profession that will support his family in the long run.
“After 13 years being in the workforce, I came back to school finally when I had enough in FNPF, I guess I am grateful to the government of the day for giving us scholarships and TELS programs, I was able to fulfill that by this time I was married with 4 children.”
Singh adds he is now happy working in a profession he loves and at the same time providing a better life for his family.
