Contestant excited about chasing her dream

SHEENU Vandana has never been prouder of being a Ba citizen now that she has been selected to participate in the Digicel Ba Riverside Carnival.

The Sarava, Ba, native said being given the opportunity to fulfil her childhood dream of participating in a pageant was unreal.

"It is a privilege," the 23-year-old travel consultant said.

"Of course winning the crown would be the icing on the cake."

Nine other contestants are vying for the crown.

According to Ms Vandana, she will use the carnival as a platform to advocate issues young people face.

When asked how preparation for the event was coming along, she said it had all been going well.

"I will also be standing as a proud citizen of Ba. I want to show people to be proud of where they come from. I also want people to be proud of the achievements of the town."
