A 14-year-old girl from a village in Ba yesterday graduated with a Certificate in Cookery and Patisserie.

Kinisimere Ravatu, a Year 8 student from Natunuku Village was one of 179 participants. Her group was part of the record breaking 940 people who graduated in the Sustainable Livelihood Government-funded project under the Fiji National University at Sorokoba Village in Ba yesterday.

“My parents asked me if I wanted to take part and because I love cooking. I never hesitated in taking up the course,” Kinisimere said.

“I learnt to bake cakes and different dishes.

“I love learning and making chicken rolls,” she said.

Making chocolate and fruit cakes were part of the course and now this has motivated Kinisimere, the eldest in her family of four, to carry on this line of work as a career.

“I hope to one day I become a chef at one of the big hotels and resorts, and having completed this I am sure I will do my best as I carry on.

“I thank the Government and FNU for providing this opportunity to people like us from rural areas,” she said.
