Flying Qatar Airways soon... Joana Senibua.

Travelling the world was merely a dream for 21-year-old Joana Senibua, who had her mind set solely on classes and university.

However, the lure of becoming a flight attendant caught her attention and she made a decision that was set to change the course of her life.

In September 2014, Qatar Airways was conducting interviews in Suva for potential new recruits. Out of the many young people who applied, Ms Senibua became a successful applicant and will travel to Doha, Qatar, this week.

“It was my sister who sent me the advertisement through Facebook and she continually encouraged me to attend the interview. I was nervous about it but I dropped off my application documents and waited to hear back from them,” she said.

She had almost missed her chance when her medical documents were arranged late.

“Imagine my surprise when I was e-mailed and they told me I could still send in my documents. I knew this was the second chance I needed,” she said.

Originally from Navutu Village in Nadroga, Ms Senibua is the youngest of three, currently pursuing a degree in journalism at the University of the South Pacific. It was during her time as an attachee journalist at the Fiji Sun when she was contacted as the successful recruit for the Qatar Airways Cabin Crew.

“Working at the Fiji Sun and studying journalism has been an amazing opportunity and it’s given me confidence to do new things,” she said.

“I hope to resume my studies in the future but for now, I have to grasp this rare opportunity.”

Ms Senibua secured a five-year contract and will leave for Doha tomorrow to begin her new journey with Qatar Airways.
