New Queen attributes success to Ba spirit , makes mum proud

Miss Ba Zaira Begg, the new TFL Miss Fiji, attributed her success to the spirit of moving forward no matter how hard life was.

“I am proud of Ba and I am here to spread the spirit of Ba, which is to take up the challenge and move forward no matter how hard life is.

“I did not realise that selling mangoes and selling kai at the roadside was a good struggle for me as it was to earn some cash for school,” Ms Begg said.

Her mum Gina Moses, 52, who was watching from the stands with emotion said their family struggles had paid off.

“I cannot find any suitable word to describe the way I feel after what my daughter has achieved,” she said.

“There was no way I could dream along that line looking at the hard times they were brought up. I thank all those that are part of her success and my support towards her won’t stop from here.”

The 21-year-old Sorokoba native was crowned TFL Miss Fiji by Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum at Prince Charles Park last Saturday night.

She also claimed three other category titles in Best Traditional Attire, Best Talent and Best Research Topic during the TFL Miss Fiji Pageant crowning.

“I will do my best to take Fiji to another level and I need the support of the people,” she said.

She also thanked the other contestants for the unity and belief in moving Fiji forward.

Miss Begg will represent Fiji at the 2015 Miss Pacific Islands Pageant in Rarotonga, Cook Islands in December.
