Positive outcome

Atasa Moceituba
Friday, July 18, 2014

IN every negativity there is always a positive outcome and in order to see beyond the negativity, people need to be intelligent enough to recognise their own share of sorrows, pain and sufferings in life.

This is the view of 19-year-old Lynell Talei Dibose Koli, who is a queen contestant at this year's Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival.

The Suva lass hopes to advocate on ways and measures that could be used to improve technology and combat the effects of climate change.

Sponsored by Valuefone Ltd, the former Jasper Williams High School student says taking part in the mother of all festivals was not about being pretty, but showcasing talents that mattered.

"It's about interacting with the people of this beloved country, learning more about them and to also share the knowledge that I have with them and assist them in whatever way I could."

Miss Dibose said despite the challenges and difficulties she went through in life, she was able to survive the impossible through God's help and guidance.

She said for every challenge she faced, she always made sure she put a cheerful and smiley face all the time. Miss Dibose said attending the Hibiscus festival and watching people coming together for the past years was something that motivated her to contest.

"I then made that decision if all the people could come together just to watch a group of beautiful and intelligent women contest for a crown, then I want to be one of the contestants as well."

Miss Dibose is a student at the Fiji National University studying Information Technology.
