Life is about opportunities and making the right choices, says world sevens wizard Waisale Serevi.

The sevens maestro arrived in the Northern Division yesterday where he met fans, especially school children who were ready for their school break.

Mr Serevi said children need to set their goals as to what they want to do in the next five years.

He believes this is the most important time for them to set their goals for the future.

He advised students to draw a line on anything that distracts them from their goal.

The father of three children recalled his younger days when no one in his neighbourhood liked him because he was not good academically.

He said that did not stop him from achieving his lifetime goals.

“Just as I was doing and making the right choices, trying to be a good citizen and trying to help the country. My big goal in 1977 was to play for Fiji and make people happy: he said.

“I thank God for giving me the talent that I achieved successfully 13 years later and making people happy by winning the Hong Kong 7s in 1990- there was a public holiday.”

He believes our children are bright and everything is about making choices.

“You cannot control what’s outside there, but you can control yourself by taking care of yourself, listening to parents and making the right choices so that you can enjoy your life later,” he said.

Mr Serevi acknowledged student’s resilience in continuing school despite the challenges faced by the country.

He said it is time students enjoy their holiday and take care of themselves by following the COVID-19 safety measures.

“There’s a lot of things happening in the country and the advice is also for parents to look after their kids at home,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Serevi will be travelling to Kia Island with his wife and daughter Una to handover some cyclone relief assistance and to encourage them during these challenging times.
