Miss Fiji Sugar Corporation Vasiti Adimaira Volavola has taken out both the Vodafone Rakiraki Carnival Queen and Miss Charity titles.

The 24-year-old could not hold back her tears and was speechless when she was named the 2015 Vodafone Rakiraki Carnival Queen and Miss Charity last Saturday night.

She was crowned by the Minister for Local Government, Housing, Environment, and Infrastructure Praveen Kumar.

“I am overjoyed, happy and excited for what I’ve achieved. The hard work sacrifice and commitment has paid off,” Ms Volavola said.

“I want to dedicate this win to all the supporters in Rakiraki and especially to my father wishing him well ahead of Father’s Day.

“And also to my other siblings and my designers who were always beside me the whole four days, encouraging me.

“I want to thank my sponsors Fiji Sugar Corporation for believing in me and giving me a wonderful opportunity like this.”

The young woman from Waiqori, Oneata, Lau, said confidence and believing in herself was what pulled her through.

“It isn’t easy to be up there on stage and speaking to the hundreds but I had always being strong and I believed in myself,” she said.

“I did not expect to be crowned queen when I came into this competition as I knew it was going to be a tough competition.
