Lynell Talei Dibose Koli describes herself as confident, intelligent and pleasant and she wants to highlight how useful technology will be towards the Climate Change Adaptation Programme.

The 19-year-old 2014 Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival queen contestant is sponsored by Valuefone Limited [Fiji] is a Diploma in Information Technology (IT) student at the Fiji National University.

“Growing up at the Nasova Police compound was an advantage because I had the privilege of attending the Hibiscus festival every year,” Ms Koli said.

She said watching people from all walks of life coming together to a festival leaving aside their differences was something that motivated her to become a contestant.

“Coming from a background where my parents were divorced when I was at a very tender age, I was blessed to know that through the difficulties God was there for me.”

Ms Koli said she believed that she was made to survive the impossible to make her a better person that God had intended her to be.

“With all that in mind I always make sure that I wear a smile because that is a trademark for Fijians which I’m proud to be.”

She loves meeting people, socialising, reading, travelling to new places and most of all, singing.

“In the next five years I want to see myself as a successful IT technician working in a government department and living an independent life.”
