Youths join 'change' campaign

ASPIRING politician and Be the Change campaign leader Roshika Deo has begun to make a name for herself around the country and in the political arena.

And with the general election expected to be held on September 17, her rise to fame could not have come at a better time.

And two youths have made their sentiments towards Ms Deo known, commending her for inspiring them to become the change.

"An excellent opportunity came by to meet Roshika when I accompanied my friends to a rally organised by the Be the Change campaign held in Suva early April," explained 21-year-old Atika Patel, who is a second year psychology and sociology student.

"One of the things that really stood out for me was how Roshika immediately came up to us, introduced herself and we all started talking, she is a very warm person."

Similarly, 21-year-old Lavetanalagi Seru said he came to know about Ms Deo's campaign through the Be the Change Facebook page.

"Before I knew Roshika, I was a Bainimarama supporter.

"I believe in Roshika's dream that youths are part of a new change, we shouldn't be sitting back relaxing, but rather should be concerned and get involved in issues that daily affect all, which in one way or the other has a connection back to politics."
