Even at a young age, Waisale Ramoce took part in as many oratory and public-speaking sessions as much as he could. And he won many of them.

The tertiary academic says writing liberates his mind.  Our Fiji Sun Letter of the Week prides himself in writing for those who aren’t able to express themselves.

So it’s no surprise that his winning letter titled, Rugby Power, was written on behalf of a friend.

The letter talks of how Fiji was snubbed in the World Rugby Awards despite our 7s team and former coach Ben Ryan performing spectacularly well in the Rio Olympics.

But moreover suggests what the Fiji Rugby Union and our neighbouring Tier One nations, Australia and New Zealand, can do to support our bid to bring Fijian rugby at par.

“So when that came out in the media, that Fiji had no place in it, I was quite hurt and having seen rugby as a potential platform for people to express themselves, it really struck me.

“One of my friends on Facebook had an expressive post saying he was not quite satisfied.

“Then I promised him that I was going to write a piece on his behalf and I am thankful that it came out.

“My interest is social issues for those people who become victims of social issues and who most of the time can’t express themselves.”

Mr Ramoce thanked Fiji Sun for introducing the initiative where writers get to win a prize for their letter.

He says it inspires them to bring more depth in their letters.

“It’s a really good initiative and when people feel there is a competition and an award for best writers, they look deeper into the issue and they get pushed to write about their ideas for themselves and for the community,” he said.
