Today on my blog I dedicate it to one of the most amazing and most cherished friend I met back in 2013 while studying in India.
This is my Dear friend from Durban, South Africa, Darlene Moodley one of the kindest and humblest soul I’m glad to have known and call my friend.
As I write this, Darlz as we normally call her is getting ready for her flight back to India to pursue her masters studies in Pune.
I’m so proud of her after learning of the good news this week and it had to fall on her birthday which was a sign it was all meant to be.
I met Darlz 5 years ago when I left Fiji (home) for the first time to study Journalism for 3 years in Hyderabad, India. I can vividly recall the first day she walked into class on the second week of college and sat in front of me. Later on as I introduced myself, I never knew that would be the beginning of a life-long friendship.
I know how hard it is especially for her family leaving home yet again to pursue her Dreams and I know this was always the initial plan. (having been back home after only 2 years).
I take this time to wish her the very best and as I post this up she would definitely be in Dubai by now waiting for her flight to Pune.
Darlz is a one in a million friend and here’s why, her humility and patience is so unmatched by far all the 3 years I’ve known her she’s never raised her voice to no one. She always put others first no matter how busy her schedule is, if its studying for exams or if other students needed her help she’ll go out of her way to help. Her encouragement and Positive attitude about everything still Amazes me till today. Her commitment and passion in all she does whether its studying, cooking, or helping other people she does it with all her heart I tell you. Her Faith and her Love for her Family above all is just beautiful to watch.
An Amazing role model and inspiration to all she meets and I know for sure she will have many more priceless encounters and impact so many more people while she lives and studies in Pune.
Darlz I just want to let you know how priceless your friendship is to me personally, I’m crying while writing this. This is me being vulnerable and thankful at the same time. Thank you for always being there for me through the ups and downs, encouraging me always that all will work out in the end and you’re right it has.
As you would say “Satakala at the right time the job will come to you” and it has😊 As I write this on a beautiful cloudy Sunday afternoon here in Fiji & you’re on the other side of the world beginning a new chapter in your Amazing Journey, I salute and appreciate you so very much.
My writings won’t be enough to express how two different people from different parts of the world, one from a tiny Pacific island country and the other from another continent, different religion, culture, and ethnicity can create such a beautiful friendship that I would never trade for anything in this world.
Someone once said that if you have 3 life-long friends your whole entire life then you’ve done well for yourself. You are definitely in that category girl. I have done well somehow.
So as you embark on this chapter for the next 2 years may you succeed in all you do and may GOD’s blessings and mercies guide you every step of the way. And when things get tough and challenging know I’m always gonna be here supporting and encouraging you all the way. Keep Smiling and spreading Positive energy in all you do
Much love and respect Always from your Loud Fijian Friend xo 😍
