Young: Develop fashion industry

Atasa Moceituba
Wednesday, July 09, 2014

EVERY year, one of the main attractions of the "Mother of all Festivals" are the contestants that compete for the prestigious title of Miss Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus.

With contestants ready to take to the stage and compete against one another, Miss Fiji Fashion Week hopes to raise awareness on the need to develop the fashion industry in the country.

Supported by Golden Ocean Fiji Ltd, Anne Young believes thousands of jobs and livelihoods can be sustained and created through the right support from authorities.

Ms Young said her parents were her most prized possession and one of the main reasons she decided to contest this year's festival.

"Today, I carry myself with the values and lessons my parents taught me as a child. I cherish my relationship with my parents and my siblings," she said.

"The love and support I get from them is all I ever need. A family can have everything, but without love and unity everything else is useless."

Hoping to become a successful leader and being more useful to the community by lending a helping hand and reaching out to unfortunate people, the former St Joseph's Secondary School student says she has what it takes to be this year's Hibiscus queen.

"I believe I will make a great Hibiscus queen because I have the capabilities. I am someone who people can look up to, and I am more than willing to help in whatever way I can towards bettering the livelihoods of the people of Fiji."

Ms Young said she wanted to share her views on the different issues of life that could help people improve their livelihoods.
