THE Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) of Fiji elected the youngest vice president in its history, Davila Speight, at its biennial meeting last month.

Other members elected at the meeting were Merioni Tuilaucala, Veena Singh Bryar, Lagilagi Jiuta, Nunia Thomas Ilisapeci Jiuta and Alisi Waqanika-Daurewa.

New president Ilisapeci Jiuta said Ms Speight had served in the last two years as a young women's rep to the National Executive Council Fiji.

She said the executives would work to make a difference in the lives of women and girls in Fiji.

"The new team is also committed to open, transparent and accountable leadership and to working in partnership with government departments and other women's and youth NGOs," she said.

Ms Speight said she was passionate about affirming women and girls of their worth and encouraging them to stand firm in what they believed in.

She said she was also passionate about raising awareness of reproductive health of girls and young women and the empowerment of girls and young women through education and self-development.
