“Dream it, believe it and achieve it.” That’s what Neon Jairo Siaki told her fellow graduates at Pesega yesterday.
And she had all reasons to be proud. Along with 28 other graduates from business class, the young woman from L.D.S. Church College Pesega finally received her diploma.
“I feel so happy right now, because without this, we would not know what to do,” she said. “As a graduate from Business class, I now have so many opportunities for my future: If I do not find a job now, I can start my own business or might do something else.”
The Business class was facilitated by Samasoni Pe’a who congratulated his students yesterday.
“Everything in this life has to do with business – even if it’s just the shoes you are wearing at the moment,” he said.
But it was not only the graduates from Business Class who had their proud moment.
The school also honoured a great number of English students who were able to successfully complete the college’s Self-Reliance English course, conducted by their teacher, sister Wendy Whittle.
Originally from Utah, USA, Whittle serves together with her husband as an L.D.S. missionary and felt more than happy with the goal her students achieved. “English is such an important part of Samoa now and it is necessary that the country’s youth learns the language,” she said.
“That is exactly what the graduates of today have accomplished. Every day in class they came up to us and wanted to do more homework, so they were really willing to achieve this goal.”
