Women can make a change in a male dominated profession if they don’t underestimate their abilities to achieve greater things in life, says Unaisi Waqa.

The Naivicula lass from Tailevu was among Adi Cakobau School prefects who were inducted last Friday.  She is a day-scholar prefect.

“I want to be an aircraft engineer in the future,” she said.

“Even though it’s a male dominated field, I believe that women also have the ability to make wonders in the field of aircraft engineering.

“Any woman can become an aircraft engineer. Nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself and work hard towards achieving your dreams.

“I believe in order to live my dream in the future ; I should put God first in my life and other things will start falling into place. The other important thing is using my time wisely and working hard in school,” she said.

Unaisi said being a prefect of ACS came with a lot of responsibilities.

“I am ready to take up this role. With the help of my teachers and colleagues; with God by my side, I am confident that I will be able to carry out my role.

“I thank my parents and my siblings for their support. My father is with the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces and is in the Western Division. That is why he is not here today,” she said.

Unaisi advises girls her age to dream big and never let anything stop them from living their dream.
