Sera's finest moment

Ranoba Baoa
Sunday, August 29, 2010

KADAVU beauty Sera Tikotikoivatu was crowned 2010 Miss Hibiscus last night — and dedicated her win to Fiji's youths.

The 23-year old, sponsored by the Suva City Council, was lost for words when judges declared her after the final judging that was shown live on national television. "I can't believe this. My hand was shaking," she said after the crowning at Albert Park in Suva.

"I was among so many wonderful women who had so much to give the community.

"The journey has built me to be the person that I never thought I'd be. I'd like to encourage young people to always aspire to their dreams because challenges are part of our lives and will help to mould us to be the person we want to be and who we are."

First runner-up was Miss Youth Coalition Paulini Saurogo and second runner-up was Miss Fiji Sun Ellen Stolz.
