Moce (Fiji)- It can take you anywhere – Ruci Kawai Waqa

“Cricket for me has changed the way I look at people, especially women.

Moce

In the villages it’s seen that women have to stay home and do what is traditionally women’s chores, but in Moce when we got the women’s team, it changed the way people viewed the women.  They saw them as more than just people that did chores.  Also, I think cricket is good for non-educated people.  A lot of us (in the villages) think that sport can’t take us anywhere, we think that we have to go to school and then go overseas to study more (in order to ‘get somewhere’), but this sport, cricket…it can take you anywhere, even if you’re not formally educated.”
