Meet Nayome Lois Pauriasi one of the 12 Queen contestants vying for the Vodafone Hibiscus crown this year.

The 19-year-old said she chose the advocacy message was because of her interests in the environment and the benefit of a clean one.

She hails from Itumuta on Rotuma. She will be representing APCO in the weelong festival that will be held at the Valelevu, Nasinu grounds from August 10 – 18.
