Meet girl most likely to succeed
MURWILLUMBAH High School student Jess Singh chose to wear a brightly-coloured, traditional Indian sari to her high school formal for something different from all the other dresses on Friday night.
The school captain said she was excited to go to the formal and dress up for the night.
“I had my hair and makeup done early at 12pm because it takes about an hour to put on my dress,” Ms Singh said.
After the formalities and dinner were dispensed with, awards were handed out to graduating students. .
“I was awarded most likely to succeed. Other awards handed out were things like the worst driver, and most likely to go to jail.” she laughed.
Ms Singh said she was sad and nervous to leave school but also excited to begin the next phase of her life.
“I cried during my graduation speech and will miss everything,” she said.
Ms Singh is planning to study law and psychology next year at Griffith University on the Gold Coast.
“I only really decided what I wanted to do this year,” Ms Singh said.
“I really enjoyed doing legal studies and thought I would be interested in psychology.”
She said her brother currently studied international business and commerce at Griffith.
“It's pretty close and I know a lot of friends who already go there,” she said.
