Real beauty comes from within

Shayal Devi

REAL beauty does not come from looking like a plastic doll but rather having a beautiful mind and spirit that inspires people.

This is the message Miss Hasmat Investments Saweni Sector Manisha Dharshana will carry to the public when she joins the race for the title of Miss Farmers 2014 this weekend.

The 22-year-old University of the South Pacific student said this was an issue many young people faced nowadays.

"I want to show them that beauty can be found on the inside too and that young people are amazing in their own ways, no matter what shape, size, colour or creed," she said.

She is joined by 20-year-old Fiji National University student and Miss Kiran Palace Lautoka Sector Doreen Kata, who will be advocating for accessible education to be available to all people.

"I always see many underprivileged children and many of them miss school because they are unable to access basic schooling items," she said.

"I want to help raise money for them."

However, for 18-year-old Miss Wilderness Amusement and Rides Natova Sector Bale Senikauciri, joining the Farmers Carnival contestants is a slightly personal affair.

"My parents are vegetable farmers and they face difficulties sending me to school," the Lau lass said.

"The Farmers Carnival committee paid my school fees and provided me with stationery when I was younger. Now, I want to help other children get educated."
