Tanisha Sharma has always been interested in baking, so when it was time to choose tertiary study options, taking up a course in baking and patisserie at the Fiji National University (FNU) was an easy decision.

Enrolled in Trade Diploma in Baking and Patisserie offered through the College of Business Hospitality and Tourism Studies (CBHTS), Sharma is enjoying her baking classes at the Namaka campus in Nadi.

“Becoming a student was quite an easy transition for me overall, probably because I knew this was exactly what I wanted to do and where I wanted to be. I couldn’t wait to start my academic journey at FNU after I had completed my secondary education. The classes are fun and exciting as I had imagined,” she said.

The former Drasa Secondary School student is adapting well to the new study environment.

“My university experiences thus far have been amazing. I have learned and experienced so many new things in such a short period, and it has gone by so fast. I am still discovering all the opportunities that FNU offers me. FNU is a very welcoming place, and from the first day, I felt at ease.”

According to Sharma, the courses are exciting and have allowed her to experience some new things in baking.

“I have already mastered the basics of baking. I was always in charge of desserts and became the family’s official baker. I am fascinated with pastry and have spent many hours in the kitchen covered in flour. I am so passionate about baking, working with pastries, and creating desserts for people to enjoy.”

“I am happy to be part of the FNU. After completing my education, the qualifications that I will gain will be most rewarding. From day one, I have become part of a broad network of creative classmates, industry experts and a team of staff dedicated to helping me succeed.”
