IF you come across her at the Vinod Patel store at Laucala Beach Estate, you couldn't possibly guess that she nurtures a dream to become an accountant.
A dream Seini Vusoniceva is edging closer to, as she ticks off the units she has to complete for a diploma in accounting at the Fiji National University. And with that in the bag, Seini will pursue the relevant degree to accomplish her aim.
Before she can lay claim to that diploma, the Waivula native from Navatu in Cakaudrove has to undergo a three-month industrial attachment, in addition to successfully completing 12 units of study.
This is exactly what she is doing at the moment.
The lass, whose mother is from Vione, Gau in the Lomaiviti Group, is into the third week of her attachment based at the company's hardware section.
During her three-month stint, she will rotate through the various departments, sales, export etc. As she makes her way through the company, the managers of the various departments will look at her performance, analysing how well she has learnt, and forward it to the university for her final assessment.
The 20-year-old explains the attachment can be done after the completion of nine units. Some students prefer they gain the requisite industrial attachment for them to graduate after having successfully completed all 12 units.
Seini says she has always wanted to be an accountant since she first took up accounting as a fourth former at Navatu Secondary School. She was at the school for forms three through to six.
In 2010, she attended Rishkul College for Form Seven after her soldier dad moved to Suva.
Seini says her mum stayed home to ensure her husband and children received all the available support needed to do well at work and school.
The girl who attended Nasinu District School for her primary school education, is confident the attachment will put her in good stead when she goes hunting for a job in an increasingly competitive market, given the support and encouragement she has been getting from those in charge at Vinod Patel.
In a world where it's imperative to prioritise an endless list of things to do, that at times can be overwhelming, Seini has her sights firmly set on that diploma.
