DANIELLE Watson from Trinidad & Tobago hopes to call Fiji home as she pursues her PhD research in linguistics at the USP.

Ms Watson, 30, will be in Fiji for a year and already thinks Fiji is a lot like where she is from.

"This place is lot like home but also very different in terms of culture and way of things," she said.

"People here are very friendly and I want to learn to speak the local language."

She said she was looking forward to studying at USP, a university that allows students to conduct research outside their disciplines.

Manager USP International Poonam Santiago said the event was an opportunity for the USP community to get to know their new and enthusiastic international students from various countries.
