A childhood dream coming true and the opportunity to give back and support her parents were the main motivations behind W/Police Constable Palvi Sharma's pursuit of a career in the Fiji Police Force.

The 22-year old from Solove in Labasa says she was elated when seeing her name in Batch 63 of the Basic Recruits Course that marched in on the 6th of March.

The former Seaqaqa Central College student and third youngest of seven siblings, whilst a student at the T.I.S.I Nursing School in Labasa attended the recruitment drive in Seaqaqa conducted in 2020 as she did not want to miss the opportunity of realizing her childhood dream.

W/PC Sharma said securing a place in Batch 63 made her appreciate all the struggles her parents had gone through for her to realize her dreams.

“I often cry when I think of my parent's struggles especially since a medical condition left my father partially disabled, but he did everything possible from cane farming to selling in the market to ensure we had food on the table everyday".

She said her decision to march in for the Basic Recruits Course was met with mixed reactions as she had spent 12 months studying at the Nursing College, however she was determined and motivated by her parents to pursue her dreams.

W/PC Sharma also acknowledged the support of her siblings and vowed to support them in the pursuit of their dreams.

She said she will never forget her humble beginnings and is grateful to her parents for their continued support.

The BRC Batch 63 Training was officially opened today by the Deputy Commissioner of Police Itendra Nair.
