Adi Siliva Veitana has always dreamt of being employed in the local thriving tourism industry. The nineteen-year-old is now a step away from achieving her goal, after successfully enrolling in the Bachelor of Hospitality and Hotel Management programme offered by the Fiji National University’s (FNU) College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism studies (CBHTS).
The Gau lass accompanied by her mother Teresia Dumaru visited the FNU team at Tappoo City in Lautoka to enquire about study options available in the tourism sector. They were pleasantly surprised to learn that the teenager was eligible to enrol in the Bachelor programme.
Dumaru said they were pleased with the efficient service and prompt academic counseling rendered to them at the outreach centre.
“When we were filling the application form, she opted for the Diploma programme, however, we were informed by the staff that she qualifies for the Bachelor programme. I am extremely impressed with the academic counselling that was provided to my daughter,” the proud mother said.
Adi Veitana said the enrollment process was quick and easy.
“I was surprised when I was told that my offer letter will be ready in few minutes. After receiving my offer letter, I was able to complete my enrolment on site,” said the former Central College student.
“I always dreamt of working in a hotel since childhood, so once I completed secondary education, then I saw this was an opportunity for me to study this programme at FNU,” she said.
Dumaru is confident that her daughter will excel in her chosen field, as she has a bubbly personality and interacts well with people.
“My daughter has a passion to serve people and she will shine in her field. We have been thinking about her career and she has decided to do Hospitality and Hotel management which was her dream since childhood. I am confident she will excel as she is very humble and interacts well with everyone,” she said.
The first-year student said her prefers to study at FNU, as she will be near to her home and family.
“I chose to study at FNU because it is one of the best institutes to study the Hospitality and Hotel programme, along with excellent learning facilities and environment,” she said.
Adi Veitana will begin her classes next month at FNU Namaka Campus.
