As a mother and housewife, completing her studies was the last thought on Vasiti Lo­cawai’s mind.

She was among the 473 students that graduated at the Technical College of Fiji, Nabua campus on Mon­day.

Ms Locawai said she was thankful that education op­portunities were provided by Government in order to assist those who wished to complete their studies.

“I have achieved my goal and have graduated with a National Certificate in Automotive Mechanical En­gineering from CP Singh Campus, Navua and I have plans to set up my own garage,” she said.

“I did not see myself as a student especially in a male-dominated field.

“I am thankful and am very appreciative of Techni­cal College setup around Fiji because it gives us hope that even with our busy schedules at home we can still study and graduate with a National Certificate.”

Similar sentiments were shared by Nabua Sanatan College campus graduate Ashish Sandeep Kumar. He was grateful for the chance to complete his education in a technical field.

“I left school at Class Eight and I later joined Techni­cal College to get a trade certificate which helped me get a job. I finally have achieved my goal by graduating from Technical College.

“I am hoping that with the lifelong skills that I have attained I want to set up my own garage in the next five to 10 years.”
