Modelling Prospects Excite Organisers

The six girls who have been chosen as the fabulous six of modelling show Project Jejemon were excited about their first photo shoot held at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva yesterday.

Hanisi Hodge, 18, said the show was the first of its kind in Fiji and she was happy to be part of it.

“I was excited about the possibility of working with Andhy Blake, this would really give me some exposure,” said Ms Hodge, who is originally from Lomaloma, Vanuabalavu, Lau, with maternal links to Malhaha in Rotuma.

She has had modelling stints while she was living in the United States and at the Fiji Fashion Week and Style Fiji events.

Thirteen-year-old Blue De-la-mare, who is originally from Durban, South Africa, said she absolutely loved modelling and the project would be a great chance for her.

“I’m very excited to be part of the project and working with the rest of the girls,” Ms De-la-mare said.

Eighteen-year-old Marie Fall said she has had a great time getting to know the rest of the girls.

“I feel welcomed, its lovely there isn’t that feeling of competition,” she said.

Ms Fall was born in the United States and is originally from Senegal, West Africa, and has maternal links to Matasawalevu Village in Nakasaleka, Kadavu.

Twenty-four-year-old Vasiti Radekedeke, who’s modelled for Fiji Fashion Week and Miss World Fiji Top Model, said she was excited to be part of something very different.

Ms Radekedeke is originally from Totoya in the Lau Group.

Twenty-two-year-old, Heather Marama said it was the first time for her to be part of a project as such.

“I’m really excited and nervous at the same time,” Ms Marama said.

She is originally from Ucunivanua Village in Verata, Tailevu.

Twenty-three-year-old Adi Lagakali Tavaiqia said she wished to use this opportunity as a platform to also advocate issues she’s very passionate about.

“While this chance gives me exposure I can also use it to advocate on issues like human rights, youth empowerment and gender equality,” said Adi Lagakali.

The Viseisei native of Vuda in the Western Division said this would be a great learning experience that would help her develop her public speaking skills.
