Unity Fiji provisional candidate Ratu Jope Naucabalavu will take on the 2018 General Election as a platform to advocate issues affecting youths in Fiji.

“Among issues I will advocate is basically youth unemployment and the importance of education on young people,” Ratu Jope said.

“I believe the power of books and pens can have an impact in our society. We need educated youths in our communities.

“Those who ares capable of making a change. Education leads to success and we need to raise awareness on youth unemployment, we should provide initiatives that will help youths use their talents as a source of income.”

The 28-year-old, originally from Bau in Tailevu, was raised in Tamavua with maternal links to Serua.

He attained a Certificate in Diploma in Lab Technician from the Fiji National University and a Certificate in Early Childhood Education and Cookery from the Australian Pacific Technical College.

In 2012, he started his career as a kindergarten teacher at Samabula Primary School where he worked for two years before teaching at the Christian Mission Fellowship Primary School. He later took up an administration job at the Christian Mission Fellowship College.

Ratu Jope has worked with private organisations like the Hibiscus Festival Events Group. He also took part in the festival as a contestant in 2014. He also participated in the Youth Parliament programme in 2015 and later worked as a duty manager for Damodar Events.

He lists his hobbies as swimming, dancing and socialising, which includes community work. If Unity Fiji comes into power, Ratu Jope believes they would make many changes in Fiji that would benefit everyone in society. Edited by Jonathan Bryce
