Former Fiji Sun assistant finance manager, Vineeta Mala was honoured by the Southern Institute of Technology in Invercargill, New Zealand on Wednesday.

She was awarded with the Top Student Award in the Masters of Applied Management programme at the University.

She will also graduate with her Masters in Applied Management from the university on December 13.

Ms Mala said she faced a lot of challenges while pursuing her education but with determination she was able to see through all her trials.

“For someone coming from the accounting background and learning about management was a bit challenging,” Ms Mala said.

“I had to go through a lot of hurdles especially having to do my research here in a land that was foreign to me,” she said.

“It was difficult trying to meet deadlines, writing reports and just having to collect data as well to back up my thesis.

“It was so challenging for me but with my family’s support and determination I managed to achieve what I had achieved.”

The 36-year-old began her career with Fiji Sun 12 years ago and rose through the ranks from being a junior staff to an accountant and a finance assistant manager.

She said: “I was very much confident that I was going to pass and my thesis marks even surpassed all other international students that had studied the same programme with me.

“I hope to build on customer service experience in the workplace after I graduate.

“We have to understand that without customers we do not generate revenue.

“So it has helped me to understand how to manage people to understand customer needs and how to deal with them.

She said her family support has been great and they have been with her all the way.”
