Pooja Priyanka.

Pooja Priyanka is a familiar face in the glamour world of Fiji.

Originally from Lautoka City, Ms Priyanka moved to Australia when she was around 11-years-old.

Despite being away from home, her love for the country pushed her to represent Fiji on international platforms.

Crowned Miss World Fiji 2016, Ms Priyanka is a model, dancer and an actress.

 

What Are Your Hobbies?
I love to dance.

I was a very quiet kid when I was younger so dancing really allowed me to express myself more freely and confidently.

 

How many places have you visited so far in Fiji?
I have travelled to most places on the main island as well as Labasa more recently.

 

What’s one place in Fiji you’d take every visitor to, and why?
I would show my visitors my village in Drasa, Lautoka.

There is simply no place like it – just peace and tranquility.

 

What is your secret backyard favourite spot?
Natadola beach.

There’s nothing like the white sandy beaches and a smiling sun.

 

What is your favourite place in Fiji for a pie/coffee?
My favourite place would be the Grand Pacific Hotel.

Nothing like sipping a cocktail while watching the sun set.

 

What is the one Fiji spot on the top of your bucket list?
Some places I have not visited yet but would love to do so are the Yasawa Islands and Taveuni.

They’re simply beautiful.
