Miss Coral Coast Maggie Vollmer is banking on the support from people of the Coral Coast to move on to the next level of pageants, the Miss Fiji contest.

Like other participants she is aiming to make the cut to qualify for the Miss South Pacific Pageant which will be hosted in Fiji at the end of the year.

“It won’t be easy but I am ready to take on the challenge to represent Sigatoka to the Miss Fiji Pageant,” the 20-year-old said.

She said she needed support because it was a daunting task to stand in front of a large crowd like she experienced during the Coral Coast festival.

“I am seeking help from the people of Sigatoka, as I cannot do this alone, no man is an island, I need their help to take me to the Miss Fiji Pageant,” she said.

Last Saturday night she followed in her mother’s footsteps after she was crowned Miss Coral Coast 2017.

She did not regret her involvement in the pageant, where her mother, Noellyn Vollmer at 23 was crowned the inaugural Miss Coral Coast in 1986.

She also acknowledged her father, who was not around today but was there when her mother was crowned.

“My family has been through a lot of things.

“Through our prayers, our struggles together as a family we have become what we are today,” she said.

She thanked her three brothers and the stakeholders involved in her success.

She is a second year student at the University of the South Pacific studying Hotel Management.

Her mother said she was committed to be part of her daughter’s success and she would help her in anyway because she knew what was required
