Mereoni Gonelevu thought she was dreaming when told that she had won the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation’s promotion to visit the set of television series, Bold and the Beautiful.

Mrs Gonelevu was yesterday announced the winner of the competition in front of about 100 people who gathered at the Holiday Inn Suva to witness the draw.

“I feel like I’m still dreaming and have yet to wake up; I’m so excited,” she said.

“Right now I follow it from time to time whenever I’m on leave but I used to follow it quite religiously when I was doing undergraduate studies in Sydney, Australia in the 1990’s so I’m glad that FBC is showing it.”

She said it was her daughter, Manuela, 13, who had texted her number after seeing the promotion being advertised on TV.

Mrs Gonelevu said when she woke up yesterday morning, Manuela had been reminding her of one of her favourite Bible verses, Hebrews 11: 1 which read: ‘Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.’

Manuela will now be accompanying Mrs Gonelevu to Los Angeles in the US as part of the winner’s package.

“She texted the promotion maybe twice or three times. She does not know that I’ve won but this morning she was quoting Hebrews 11: 1 and she was saying ‘Mummy make sure you take me’,” Mrs Gonelevu said.

She hopes to meet some of her favourite cast.

Mrs Gonelevu thanked FBC for enabling her dream to come true.

Meanwhile, FBC’s chief executive officer, Riyaz Sayed- Khaiyum said they’ve established a good partnership with the executives of the television series and hoped to have this competition annually.
