Students should always set a goal and work towards it.

These were the words of 18-year-old Ana Yaranavanua, a Year 13 student of Saqani High School in the province of Cakaudrove during the University of the South Pacific Labasa Open Day at the Katonivere grounds yesterday.

An aspiring journalist, Ms Yaranavanua said it had always been her dream to be a part of the media.

“I am finishing high school this year and I look forward to joining the Journalism programme in USP next year,” the Ms Yaranavanua said.

“I can now see that my hard-work is slowly paying off as I am steps away from achieving my life-long dream and I am determined to continue to work hard towards it.”

The Natuvu, Saqani, lass said she wanted to be a journalist because she loved writing, travelling, and meeting people.

“Journalists play an important role in a country as they are eyes and ears of the public,” Ms Yaranavanua said.

The shy but well-spoken girl said she loved to read and did not limit herself to only one genre.

“Reading is a hobby that I picked up from when I was small and while I love reading detective fiction, I read other books too,” Ms Yaranatabua said.

“This has helped me understand the English language better and to be a better writer.”

Ms Yaranatabua was one of more than 2000 students who turned up to the event yesterday.
