SERA Sautini Vulava, 13, wants men to value their wives and not become perpetrators of domestic violence.

The Tarukua beauty from Cicia Island in the Lau Group is among three other contestants vying for the teens crown in the Duavata Northern Crime Prevention Carnival scheduled to take place in Labasa next Saturday.

She will use the carnival to advocate against domestic violence.

"Domestic violence is real and it happens almost in every homes and I personally believe if people are educated, they won't resort to the unlawful act," the Year Eight student of Labasa Sangam Primary School said.

"Education is the key to success. We must educate the community to control domestic violence and help the victims of such degrading behaviour. I will use the carnival to reach out to the people, especially men so they can respect, treasure and value their wives and partners."
