Learning process

THEY are ordinary young girls from various walks of life seeking to do something extraordinary in life.

With the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival a way to be heard, these contestants have one thing in common, to appreciate the role that comes with being on the public stage.

With the contestants of the five categories attending training programs, this year's teen contestants are focused on their community work at present.

Teen contestant co-ordinator Jane Kanas said the teen contestant's activity was a learning process for the girls and also a necessary part of their preparation.

She said the activities had helped the young girls become a lot more matured.

Ms Kanas said the girls spent about three hours doing general cleaning at the Samabula Home for the Aged and later interacted with the residents.

"Over the past few weeks, some of the girls came to us as self-indulgent teenagers as a lot of young people these days are but it has been a pleasure watching them grow and learn out of the activities they are going through. They have become caring and considerate and so willing to learn," she said.

"We are so proud of how far they have come."

Ms Kanas said there would be a few new changes introduced at this year's festival that people could look forward to.
