Everytime Milika Roro gets on stage to sing at the Kaila Star Search contest, she is met with loud cheering, shouting and applause.
She's wild on stage, singing her heart out with a whirlwind display of dance moves to get the crowd in the mood.
And they do! Her local fans adore her and some consider her their best performer even.
Many know her as "Milika Bleu Bayou" referring to 2008 when she hit the high notes for Lisa Del Bo's popular melody during the Catch a Rising Star contest at the Downtown Boulevard in Suva.
At the mention of that, she'd always reply with "Whatever!" followed by a loud laugh.
Mind you, Milika won Third Place that year and won a few hundred dollars!
But Milika is not your ordinary woman. She is partially sighted .
"We call it visual impairment," the 34 year-old said.
Milika says being in her shoes is not an easy journey.
She feels that she must yet again educate the community about the value and talents of the disabled among us.
"As a woman with disabilities, it can be a big task for me conversing with the public.
"We are always left out.
"So to be part of an event that recognises people for their skills and talents like the Kaila Star Search, makes me feel so lucky. I'm so fotunate to be in it," she says.
In the last two months since the Kaila Star Search took off, Milika has scored big points on the judge's tally to be able to make it to the Top 11 finalists.
The Kaila Star Search Finals will be held next Saturday, on Hibiscus opening night at Albert Park in Suva.
"I feel I'm just trying to let the public know that despite my disability, I can sing and dance," she says.
"Singing is my talent," she adds with pride.
Milika's quest to be recognised and embraced just as every able member of society has been quite a success.
For one, she works at Fiji Vocational Technical Centre for People With Disabilities, as a receptionist.
She has enjoyed the bliss of marriage which produced three beautiful daughters aged 12, 9 and 3.
Her husband passed away some years ago, but she has bravely moved on.
"So, I'm single again!" she laughs trying to make light of her situation. But that's just Milika - always smiling, happy and very positive.
Her optimistic approach to life has made her a jewel to her friends and work colleagues who come out in full force to support her shows.
"My big boss always comes," she mentions proudly.
Milika is happy to be a voice for the partially diasabled that is making an impact.
"It's rare for a woman with a disability to perform on stage like this. We've had disabled stars in sports, so I think I can also do that in entertainent!" she says.
