Lingam ready for the challenge

THE next few weeks will be difficult ones for the young and talented Adele Lingam — Miss Grand Pacific Hotel.

Despite the unfamiliarity of constantly being in the public sphere, the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Queen contestant says she is willing to tackle her challenges with determination, tenacity and family support.

The 23-year-old Nausori lass said being part of a platform such as the Hibiscus presented her with the rare opportunity to voice what really mattered to her on a national stage.

Miss Lingam, is the sales and marketing manager at the GPH, has worked for many years in the tourism industry and says her passion lies in working with people and in customer service.

"Long-term, if I'm being ambitious, I'd love to open a tapas restaurant which allows people of all ages to enjoy coffees, good meals, international-standard desserts and interesting alcoholic beverages for the adults," she said.

"Given my love for the tourism industry and my interest in its nature, I like the idea of being able to contribute to the industry through this bar as well as serve the people of Fiji."

She hopes to bring to the national stage her passion for the industry, its prospects in Fiji and possibly ways of resolving some of the industry's problems.

Some of her hobbies include socialising and spending time with friends and family, watching movies, playing badminton, cycling, traveling, playing card games, eating and graphic design.

Additionally, Miss GPH is a collector of soft toys.
