Aetrian Robert from Vanuatu said the peo­ple of Fiji made her feel at home because of their friendliness and entertain­ment.

Yesterday, the 23-year-old graduated from the Fiji Na­tional University at the FMF Gymnasium in Laucala Bay in Suva.

Robert graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil).

“I missed my family for the first few months but the warm welcome by Fijians made me feel part of them,” she said.

“Thanks to my Fijian friends who have been very helpful during my stud­ies, they are the reason I achieved my dreams,” Ms Robert said.

“It was a four-year course and six months practical and I stayed with my aunty dur­ing this period.

“My parents have always supported me through thick and thin despite being far away.”
