The Vodafone Hibiscus Queen and Kings Contestants were hosted to morning tea yesterday at the Republic of Fiji Military Forces’ barracks in Nabua yesterday.

The contestants viewed weapon display and watched demonstration of a mock attack and self-defence techniques.

King contestant Iliasa Jordan Waqavonovono, 22, said he learned a lot from the visit.

He is sponsored by Carpenters Fiji and he wants to advocate on how climate change affects children.

“I believe that it is important to have the right mindset because learning from mistakes can help a person achieve his or her life goal,” Mr Waqavonovono said.

He said he believed that a king should not only lead, but also set examples.

“Children are the silent victims to climate change and I want to educate them on how it will affect them in the future and what they can do now.”

Mr Waqavonovono said climate change was real and there was a need for action now. He likes meeting new people, experiencing new cultures and taking chances.
