Miss LICI Ruci Serea Navuru

Miss LICI Ruci Serea Navuru said she would be vocal in advocating against the harmful effects of drugs and gender-based violence during the 2015 Ba Riverside Carnival.

Originally from Nailaga, Ba, the 20-year –old said she was deeply concerned about the increase of youths engaged in drug abuse and the level of gender-based violence in her community.

Ms Navuru is one of the nine contestants vying for top honors at the Ba Riverside carnival.

“I am trying to advocate on the harmful effects of drugs and gender based violence as these are growing issues in my village,” she said.

Her hobbies include reading, surfing the web, listening to music and socialising.

At present she is pursuing a Trade Diploma in Front Office Management at the Fiji National University’s Namaka Campus and unlike other youths she said she wanted to spend her tri-mester break in a wiser manner.

“I’m currently in FNU (Fiji National University) and since I’m on my tri-mester break, I thought this would be a good way to advocate for the two issues I feel strongly about and also have fun meeting new people,” she said.

Meanwhile the 2015 Ba Riverside Carnival will take place from July 8 – 11 with the theme, “Together Building a Better Nation”, at the Ba Market grounds.
