A Labasa primary school student has vowed to advocate the dangers of discrimination within our communities.

Margret Reddy is vying for the Princess crown during the Duavata Northern Crime Prevention Carnival.

The Year Five student of Saint Mary’s Primary School believes discrimination still happens and needs to be stopped.

“Discrimination is still evident in our society nowadays and needs to be addressed and stopped,” Margret said.

She said a lot of people still took the topic lightly, but it was serous and needed to be eradicated.

“My mother is iTaukei and my father is Indo-Fijian, but I am so proud of it,” said Margret.

The eldest of three said that was one main reason she wanted to take part in the carnival.

“I want to be heard and I want to talk about issues affecting people to the public on what I see happening in the North.”

She dreams of becoming a pilot in the future and is proudly sponsored by Madhavan Printing.
