It was an unforgettable moment for Constable Arieta Rarawa Naisake as she fulfilled her dream after graduating from Fiji National University with a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice. With a lot of challenges faced on her journey, Naisake says that her turning point was when she had her first daughter while she was still a Year 13 student at John Wesley College.

She says despite this, she never lost hope because her parents motivated her to complete her studies at the Matua School in Nabua. She adds while she was studying in Nabua, she tried to balance her roles as a mother and at the same time a student and preparing herself for Year 13 examinations. Naisake says she enrolled in the Bachelor of Legislative Law (LLB) program at the FNU and found herself juggling motherhood and academic and personal challenges but she used those challenges as her motivation. She says last year she received a life-changing phone call to join the ranks of the Fiji Police Force and completed the rigorous training at Nasova Academy and was stationed at Valelevu Police Station.

Now that she has graduated and been recently admitted to the Bar, Naisake has now set her sights on furthering her education and has applied for the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (GDLP).

Naisake says she was delighted that she has been accepted to continue her studies and now she is balancing the demands of her job, part-time studies and the responsibilities of a single mother which is something that is not new to her.

Naisake acknowledged her parents, family members and the senior staff of Valelevu Police Station for their support in allowing her to attend classes and fulfill her responsibilities to provide a better future for her children.
