Miss Fiji Sugar Corporation Angynishna Asha aims to empower youths for a better North during the Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North this month. The 23-year-old of Koratari, Labasa, believes youth should be empowered to help develop the North to become prosperous.
“Being the only one in the family, I don’t have a sister or brother to share what I am passionate about; that is helping youths,” Miss Asha said.
The University of the South Pacific Labasa Campus student council president said youths were the future of Labasa Town.
“I never dreamt that one day I will be part of the biggest festival in the North. Being at this age we don’t really notice or take issues seriously; issues that affect the youths. With the festival platform I will be able to address such issues and solutions.”
Her parents Gyan Chand and Anila Devi are small vegetable farmers in Korotari. She is pursuing a Bachelors of Arts Degree majoring in language, litereature and geography.
“Being the student president at USP has also laid a strong foundation for my preparation,” she said.
The festival is from August 22 to 29.
