Miss World Supermodel Fiji, Zaira Begg, is our Fijian Ambassador to the Pacific Ambassador Festival underway in New Caledonia.

The Pacific Ambassadors Festival, a unique and exceptional event started on September 20 and ends on September 30.

Whether they are Hawaiian, Australian, Fijian, New Zealander, Tahitian, Wallisian, Ni-Vanuatu, Cook Island Islander, Or New Caledonian, they are all going to offer you the big show at the gala evening at the room hall of Anse Vata on Saturday, September 29.

It is a festival of elegance with an exceptional fashion show, creators and new collections to discover.

Ms Begg said the festival was the first of its kind here in New Caledonia and altogether there were 15 beauties from around the Pacific including Australia, New Zealand, Cook Islands, Tahiti, New Caledonia and Vanuatu.

“It’s a forum to share thoughts between the representatives of each Pacific country about the role of women and how they are acknowledged in our societies,” Ms Begg said.

“I’m so honoured and blessed to be part of this event with the other young Pacific women to discuss and share how women can be the solution to the many issues faced by women.

“I believe over the past few years women have come a long way in proving themselves and gaining equality in many aspects employment, education, parliament and taking up leadership roles.”

Ms Begg said many assumed that females would eventually fulfil the stereotype of bearing a child, meeting its needs, completing everyday household duties and attending to their husband.

She said putting women into such stereotypes not only directed peoples’ attention to gender oppression, but also gender inequality.

“I must comment on the efforts made by our mothers, sisters, aunties and grandmothers on breaking the stereotype ‘that a woman’s place is always in the kitchen’.

“I am looking forward to empower young women and share some successful stories of our Fijian women.

“I am accompanied by my mother, who is also my chaperone,” Ms Begg added.
