Beauty eyes sugar crown

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, September 17, 2013

SUGAR Festival contestant Marguerite Dorothy Sawailau is optimistic of a win at this year's event which begins on Saturday at Churchill Park, Lautoka.

She says the crown would be the ultimate belated birthday present.

The Macuata beauty who celebrated her 21st birthday yesterday, said her participation was borne out of a desire to help the needy and underprivileged in society.

"I always love to involve myself in community work, especially in helping less fortunate people.

"I am not new to speaking in public places as I was part of the recent Duavata Community Policing festival held in Lautoka," said Miss Sawailau.

"I was inspired by my sister Ana Radaniva who was one of the contestants in 2009 to participate and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead of me."

The former Lautoka Central College student said her family had been a pillar of strength throughout and she wanted to win the crown for her parents as well.

Ms Sawailau works as a front desk rep for Pizza in Paradise at Lautoka and listed singing and socialising as her hobbies.

She is sponsored by Chovhan Pharmacy.

The festival starts on Friday.
