Adriana Shankar, 15, was lost for words when she was crowned 2015 Vodafone Hibiscus Festival Teen Queen on Thursday night.

Adriana attends Rishikul Sanatan College in Nasinu and is the eldest of three siblings.

Her family lives in Valelevu, Nasinu, and she has maternal links in Totoya, Lau.

The Teen Queen said she was really shocked.

“This crown means I have done well and I have achieved what I am here for and I am thankful to the Hibiscus Committee for giving me such a wonderful experience,” she said.

“One of the challenges I went through during the week-long festival was trying to wake up early as I am use to getting up late on my normal schedule and being away from my family as I am always with the Hibiscus Committee and competing with my fellow teen contestants that I have grown to love.”

Adriana is thankful that the experience has helped build her confidence.

“Being a teen contestant is one of the most perfect journeys of my life that I will never forget.”
