Foreign exchange students on media tour

CAMERAS in hand, questions running through their minds and lots of smiles — this was what greeted staff members of The Fiji Times on Friday when a group of 21 foreign exchange students visited the Suva office as part of their media tour around the Capital City.

The students from Korea, China, Japan and India — are part of the University of the South Pacific's Intensive English Program and all study English as a second language.

Among this group was the cheerful and confident Korean national, Mijin Kim, who will this year also be modelling clothes at the Fiji Fashion Week.

Ms Kim, 21, says having arrived in Fiji a month ago, she was excited about the next 11 months she would be spending here.

"The media is very interesting here," Ms Kim said.

The class, according to tutor Keith Giblin, try to take a field trip every Friday so students see a different part of Fiji once a week.

"The Friday before this we went to the Nausori market and they really enjoyed that. We try and do something different every week and this week was the media tour," Mr Giblin said.

Meanwhile, Ms Kim, when asked about modelling for the FJFW, she said it happened by luck.

"I was shopping at TappooCity with my friend and then someone from the fashion week asked me if I would like to model and so I said yes.

"It's really exciting because I've never modelled before and I think it will be a good experience for me."
