The former Natabua High School student said she was surprised to win the award ahead of 62 other graduates.

"Winning the award is a huge achievement for me and my family," she said. "This award will also inspire me to pursue greater heights in the industry."

"I was surprised to hear my name being called out and I thank my lecturers and all those that helped me reach this far."

Ms Meenal said the award inspired her to set up her own hair salon and spa business soon.

"At the moment I am working at the Lautoka Spa and my dream is to set up my own business. The beauty therapy and Spa business is growing rapidly in Fiji mainly because of to the increasing number of tourists that visit our shores," she said.
