MISS Fiji Drue Slatter has received a rousing response at the Miss South Pacific Pageant in American Samoa.

The Korotogo beauty not only spread the uniqueness of the Fijian culture but showcased the extraordinary talents she has.

Speaking from American Samoa yesterday, Ms Slatter's chaperone Aqela Cakobau said the people loved Miss Fiji.

"In her interview in the research category Ms Slatter chose education," Ms Cakobau said.

Ms Cakobau said Miss Fiji focused on early childhood education and its importance to society.

"Her interview went very well and she did a good job. Miss Fiji was acknowledged for her in-depth research," she said.

She said Miss Fiji was also placed fifth in the float procession held yesterday.

"A lot of Fijians in American Samoa gathered to support Miss Fiji. She was given a consolation prize in the float procession."

Miss South Pacific will be crowned at 7pm today ending Fiji's Alisi Rabukawaqa's one-year reign.
