Lydia Panapasa, 16, can’t wait to represent Fiji at the 2017 Netball Youth World Cup in Botswana on July 8-14.

The Year 12 student of Suva Grammar School who plays goal-shooter anticipates a good outing and she’s keen to showcase her talent.

“I feel very excited and nervous at the same time to get the opportunity to represent Fiji,” Panapasa said.

“I am also aware of the teams we will be facing but I have faith in my fellow Fijians to do our best and I can’t wait.

“Some of challenges I faced was balancing education with netball training which was quiet difficult at the start but now I am coping up well with that.”

The three secondary school students in the team are Laisani Waqa, Panapasa and Aliti Toribau.
