Leba Vananalagi wants people to understand the hardships of single parenting as well as being proactive rather than reac­tive to situations they face in life.

The 20-year-old contestant will ad­vocate these issues during the Voda­fone Millennium Sinu Festival 2018.

“I was actually motivated by how societies these days react to differ­ent issues arising from the lack of respect and moral values,” Ms Va­nanalagi said.

“I would like to ask each and every­one to be appreciative and live a pro­active life instead of being reactive.”

The University of the South Pacific student hails from Ucunivanua Ver­ata in Tailevu with maternal links to Nawaikama in Gau.

She is not the first in the family to a contestant of any festival. Her cousin took part in the Bula Festival as one of the contestants couple of years back.

The former A.D Patel College stu­dent said she joined as a queen con­testant to advocate social issues.

She lists her hobbies as listening to music, reading and dancing.

A confident Ms Vananalagi said she would make a great Miss Nas­inu.

“I’m currently pursuing my de­gree, double major in International Business Management & Econom­ic,” Ms Vananalagi said.

“I believe I can do whatever it takes to be a role model and create an im­pact in other people’s lives and set out platforms to create more posi­tive mindsets in Fiji.

“In the next five years I see myself as a bold, confident and successful economist and to be a role model to the next generation.”

She said her friends persuaded her to be a contestant.

The festival will start this Saturday and ends with the crowning on Au­gust 4 at the Valelevu Ground.
