Adi Cakobau School headgirl Grace Turaga hopes to become a prominent journalist in future.

The 17-year-old Mualevu lass from Vanuabalavu in Lau was inducted as the head girl of the all-girl school in Sawani yesterday.

“Some prominent female journalists around the country were former students of ACS; I want to follow their footsteps and make my school and family proud.

“I think being a journalist is quite an exciting job because with that career we get to meet people from all walks of life; at one point a journalist will be talking to the Prime Minister and at another point they will be interviewing a beggar on the street, they get to see situations from every different aspect of life,” she said.

Grace hopes to study journalism at tertiary level but now, she said, she would start working on her English writing skills and researching on how to become a good journalist.

“I love how they present themselves in public by the way they do their work; how they talk to people and the role they play in delivering news to the public every day,” she said.

Grace said it was a privilege to be given the responsibility of head girl of a prominent school like ACS but it came with responsilties.

“This role comes with huge responsibilities; in order to fulfill my role as headgirl, I will have to set my boundaries with my friends, actively work with my deputies and prefects in managing duties around the school.”

Proud father, Lasarusa Turaga said he was humbled by her daughter’s achievement and pledged to give their full support to their daughter as she held the role.

“Parents are drivers of change therefore it is our duty to mould our children to become good leaders of tomorrow and that can only happen through their upbringing from home,” he said.

Meanwhile, Secretary-General to Parliament Viniana Namosimalua was the chief guest at the induction.
