First time Suva visitor, Seini Qativi, of Dalomo Village Bua, is overwhelmed by city size and the numerous people.
“I couldn’t help notice the developments that are taking place in Suva, the buildings and the people. It is so advanced,” Mrs Qativi said.
Seini Qativi, 24, is part of a 114-member delegation of the Soqosoqo Vakamarama from the Bua Province in Vanua Levu.
She is one of the 1701 women from 499 women’s group from around the country who will converge in Suva tomorrow for the three-day National Women’s Expo at the Vodafone Arena.
The Expo is a chance for women nationwide to network and showcase their handicrafts – some of them like Mrs Qativi are visiting Fiji for the first time.
Arriving at Natovi Jetty yesterday morning by the MV Spirit of Love after five hours boat ride from Nabouwalu Jetty, Mrs Qativi couldn’t hide her excitement.
“I don’t know who is more excited about being here, me or my two-year-old son, Poasa Maqanaura whom I brought along with me because we are both visiting Suva for the first time,” Mrs Qativi said.
The mother of four from Dalomo Village in Bua is a traditional Kuta (reed) weaver.
“I am even more excited because this is the first time handicrafts from my village will be showcased in an expo like this one. I would really make my visit here worthwhile. This couldn’t be a greater chance for me to learn new things that could assist me economically,” Ms Qativi said.
