Naomi Biu was the only female Fiji Corrections Services Officer, awarded a general service medal at the Naboro Corrections Complex yesterday.

The Noco native in Rewa has served as a Corrections officer for over 10 years.

“Being in a male dominated profession is a tough challenge, but if you have the passion for the profession than nothing will stop you from excelling.

“I have been in this profession for 11 years and never a day goes by that I regret the decision to join Fiji Corrections Service,” she said.

Ms Biu said people would think that working in the Corrections Service was not safe for women.

“It is our job to see that our communities are safe and it is our duty to also help inmates find a better a life after they served their term in jail,” she said.

Ms Biu served peacekeeping duties whilst with Republic of the Military Forces for a year.

The mother of two thanked her husband for stepping up whenever she was away attending to call of duty.

“I want to thank my husband for always standing in the gap for my children whilst I am away.

“My mother for always filling in my role to my children too,” she said.

She advised young men that if they wanted to succeed in a male dominated profession than they should work hard. Edited by Maraia Vula
