A lifetime opportunity

WORLD Supermodel Pageant Miss Teen Lebanon Christelle El Hindi hopes to experience the Fijian culture in a big way.

Christelle El Hindi, 19, who is a participant at the Miss World Supermodel beauty pageant this week, said it was her first time in Fiji and that she had fallen in love with the place and the people.

"The Fijian people are very kind and helpful and they are always there when you need them," she said.

"Everything is just beautiful here and I have actually tried out a lot of new things that I have never tried out before.

"I hope to learn a lot from the Fijian culture and tradition as it is different from our culture."

Ms Hindi said she was inspired by the last Miss World Supermodel winner Danielle Salamouny, who also represented Lebanon.

"This is my first time here in Fiji and it was a very long trip from Lebanon to here but it was all worth it.

"What I love the most about Fiji is the weather. It rains and gets sunny at the same time, which is something different from the weather in Lebanon."

She said all the models participating in the beauty pageant held all the characteristics of being a supermodel, something that would give the judges a hard time in crowning a winner.

"I have a passion for helping children which is something that I do back in Lebanon.

Ms Hindi said she hoped to gain a lot of experience from the pageant since such opportunities came once in a lifetime.

"The other supermodels are beautiful and smart and I enjoy their company especially Miss Teen Fiji Angela."
