A former design manager of architectural firm AAPiDesign in Suva, Loma decided to set aside time to sail on the Uto ni Yalo before she pursues a Bachelors of Architecture in Australia later this year.
Loma’s desire to crew on the Uto ni Yalo stemmed from wanting to learn more about the culture of voyaging and traditional navigation.
In the recent past, her interest and knowledge about the plight of the oceans and whales have come to the fore and now she is an active campaigner for more sustainable use of our marine resource.
Loma is also a current Fiji representative in Basketball and has been since 2002.
"I am grateful for this opportunity to be a part of this awareness campaign that is very much educational as well as an adventure."
