Venina Sauqaqa, 20, hopes to advocate on the importance of self-acceptance and self-love in this year’s Vodafone Millennium Sinu Festival 2018.

The festival starts next Saturday and culminates with the crowning on August 4 at the Valelevu ground.

Ms Sauqaqa said her family was her motivator.

“A lot of young people lack a lot of self-acceptance and self-love and I hope to use the platform to inspire the youth and encourage them to look after themselves and to appreciate the life that we have been freely given,” Ms Sauqaqa said.

“I was motivated to enter the Millennium Sinu Festival as a queen contestant with the help and support of my family and peers. I believe that it is a good foundation for me to build my confidence and to prepare me as well for my future career path.

“I see myself as being a PR officer as well as being a very active advocate and inspiration to young people within the next five years.”

She said she would make a great Miss Nasinu.

“I believe as a young person, I am very vocal in the sense that I like to voice out my opinions and stand up for people who think that their opinions don’t matter,” Ms Sauqaqa said.

“I am willing to take up the responsibility ahead of me if I am to be crowned the next Miss Nasinu and I want to use this platform well to be an inspiration to young people”

Ms Sauqaqa is a Journalism student and is completing her Certificate IV in Media Journalism at the Fiji National University.

She lists her hobbies as reading, listening to music and socialising and describes herself to be funny, outgoing and kind.
