FOR Timaima Qica, it's all about exposure in the 2013 Pacific Mini Games in Wallis and Futuna.
The 19-year-old Sila Central student will be making her debut in the Fiji colours at the PMG which starts next week.
She will compete in the 100, 200 and 4x100 metres events.
The soft-spoken seventh former said a medal would be a bonus as getting the "feel of what it is like competing in the regional event" was her major focus.
Qica, who won silver medals in the 100 and 200m and helped Sila Central win bronze in the 4x100m senior girls event at the Coca-Cola Games this year, said she was ready for the challenge.
"This is a huge opportunity given to me and I thank my coach Bola Tafo'ou for his guidance and support," she said.
Qica hopes to set her personal best times in the 100 and 200m events.
Her personal best time in the 100m is 12.5 seconds and 25s in the 200m.
"Achieving the personal best time is one of my goals and hopefully I achieve that in the games."
Fiji athletics team manager Litia Senibulu was impressed with Qica's commitment and dedication during training. "She is unknown in the region and that will be her biggest advantage. She is one of our medal prospects at the games."
The national team leaves for Wallis and Futuna tomorrow.
