Serai Vakawale is the second eldest of nine siblings and was a student at The University of the South Pacific before applying for the Fiji Corrections Service recruitment programme early this year.

It was an unforgettable experience for the soft-spoken officer. She said she felt blessed to be the first in her family to achieve such an honour and to join the institution.

“I never thought I would be commissioned today it was not part of my plan at all, I think and believe that it’s all God’s plan to me,” she said.

“This is unbelievable and I thank the Lord and my family for their support during the 18 months of training here.”
