ENESI Rusaqoli believes more needs to be done to address the issue of child and teenage insecurity.

As an aspiring forensics agent, Mr Rusaqoli is a contestant in the king's category at the Duavata Northern Crime Prevention Carnival which starts in Labasa on Saturday.

The 20-year-old hails from Cikobia Island and even though he has not been to his island home, he is proud of his origins.

"I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree at USP Campus in Labasa and this carnival has opened up new windows for me," he said.

"My intention of joining the event is to ensure that something is done about the reality behind teenage insecurity.

"I have personal insecurities which has its roots to being bullied at a young age back in primary school."

Mr Rusaqoli said the carnival would be a good platform to discuss issues affecting teenagers.

"Bullying is prevalent in our schools and people turn a blind eye to it while the innocent victims fall prey to bullies.

"The support from my family and my community has toughened me to get through the years and I believe these are the two important components that can help address this issue."

He is the eldest of five boys and his family lives in Labasa.
