Apart from the fanfare, the Western Crime Prevention Carnival 2012 has built a foundation of learning for Miss Sigatoka Police Station Phillipa Steele.
At 16, the lanky Kulukulu native remains unnerved at being the youngest of the seven competitors vying for the inaugural carnival’s queen crown.
A fifth former of Sigatoka Methodist High School, Ms Steele is frank about her stance on abuse against women and children and is keen to spread her message.
“I was invited at the last minute but I’m glad I entered because it was the perfect opportunity given on a silver platter for me to come and advocate on these issues.
“One of these is sexual harassment against women and children, which I feel is on the rise,” sha said.
“As a youth, I want to share the message that no matter your age, we can all help prevent crime and raise awareness of problems concerning our nation,’’ she said.
