Dr Priya Marajh: You have to be prepared to make a space for yourself

The school motto for St Augustine Girls’ High School is ‘Per Ardua ad Astra’, which is a Latin phrase that means “through adversity to the stars.”

And it’s a phrase that Dr Priya Marajh still uses as a guiding principle in her life today.

While Marajh said she did not face any significant hurdle in her academic pursuits the same could not be said about her work success.

“I am grateful that I did not face major challenges in my academic pursuits. I went to St Augustine Girls’ High School where we were always encouraged and taught to excel in whatever we sought to do.

“Even at the university level, I can safely say that I was fortunate to have lecturers that were very encouraging and supportive. Also, both in high school and university I had the support of my parents and friends, which was imperative. My one little challenge was that I was a bit of an introvert throughout my academic life. I was able to eventually use this to my benefit though as I was always very focused and was not easily distracted from my studies.”
