Never too young for the world

Torika Tokalau
Monday, May 05, 2014

BULOU Rokotuiwai is adamant about winning the 2014 Miss World Fiji title and representing Fiji at the Miss World pageant in London later this year.

The 17-year-old, who is the youngest in the competition, is the lone international competitor from Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia.

"I had heard about the Miss World Fiji pageant but I didn't want to compete because I didn't think I was ready and I was too young," she said.

"This is my last year in high school and I know I am definitely ready for the opportunity and experiences that come along with this pageant."

Ms Rokotuiwai, from Bau in Tailevu, with maternal links to Kadavu, was born in Suva and moved with her family to Australia when she was three years old in 2000.

She said she was proud of her Fijian heritage despite being thousands of miles away from home and hopes that through this pageant, she could give back to her country.

She left yesterday for Australia but will return later this month to prepare for the pageant.
