SEREVI Qiosese of the Naibita Youth Club in Wainibuka, Tailevu believes the National Youth Conference is a good platform that broadens knowledge on main issues that affect Fijian youths today.

He was part of the 500 plus delegates who attended the youth conference at the Vodafone Arena in Suva where they talked on some of the main areas that should be addressed to improve their personal development, and community and youth projects.

"This youth conference is indeed an eye-opener because we learnt so many new things that many of us in the village do not understand and realise," he said.

"This is the chance of a lifetime having people to come and talk to us about youth issues and ways we could improve our knowledge and improve things in the village.

"Most of us are not aware of how important these issues are and this is why this conference is very important, especially to us youth reps from rural areas."

He added he was proud to be involved in such a national gathering, which would assist him in educating his peers back home.

Mr Qiosese said most rural youths were not aware of issues such as HIV, teenage pregnancy — two issues that challenge Fijian society nowadays.
