Despite her struggles a single mother of two has been able to bounce back because of her unwavering faith.

43-year-old, Litiana Vueti, was one of the 33 graduates that graduated yesterday with their Certificate Four in Leadership and Management from the Australia-Pacific Technical College (APTC) at the Friendly North Inn in Labasa.

An industrial nurse by profession Ms Vueti doubles up as a stand-in staff member at the Human Resources (HR) desk at the FSC Labasa office.

“I have struggled a lot in life and experienced many types of losses but I have never lost my sight of God,” Ms Vueti said.

“I have been a single mother for six years and it has not been easy bringing up two sons,” she said.

“Last year on September 6, I lost all my belongings when my quarters were razed to the ground in a fire while I was away in Suva.

“I completed this eight weeks course while I was still working as an industrial nurse at Labasa FSC.

“I have been able to stand up and live my life only by the grace of God,” she said with tears in her eyes.

“I always do my quiet time and thank God in every circumstance.

Ms Vueti is confident that her new certificate will broaden and empower her leadership and management skills.

She is originally from Namara Village, Nalawa in Rakiraki (Ra) and is a Diploma in Nursing graduate.

“I would like to thank European Union (EU) for funding my course and also big thanks to FSC for allowing me to be part of this training.

“My advice to all the women who feel they can’t move on in their life, is to lift your eyes to the Lord and he will bless you with courage and strength to face each day,” the second eldest of five siblings said.

“To the young girls, my advice is to choose education for survival.”
