Age is no barrier when it comes to achieving something in your career.

These were the words for Dorothy Kiran Samuel, 62, the Director of Drive Rite Driving School based in Martintar, Nadi.

She is arguably the first lady instructor in the Western Division and was recently presented an achievement award for her 25 years of service in the Fiji Driving School Association.

This was during the Association’s meeting at Rishikul Sanatan College in Nasinu the past week.

Ms Samuel stands tall with 30 years of experience in the driving industry after she switched from her teaching career.

“Personally this achievement means a lot to me. It is another milestone for me as an individual,” she said.

“Since my husband passed away, I have been running this business with my son for 30 years.

“It is like a bonus for me and this makes me really happy.”

Ms Samuel was a primary school teacher, her first profession before she wore the hat of a new career.

“I had to resign to be in this field but I am passionate about this is because I love teaching,” she said.

“I love teaching people to drive, I am very patient and I just get along well with people.

“My philosophy is to teach people how to drive and be worthy on road where lives is at risk on the road.”

Ms Samuel has two children and two grandchildren.
