MISS World Fiji contestant Charlene Tafunai has experienced a boost of confidence and improvement in her public speaking skills through competing in the pageant.

The private judging was held at the Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday, and these attributes and skills helped her to compete.

"I do feel very confident about my chances, and think I would be a great representative that the people of Fiji can be very proud of to showcase our beautiful country to the world," Miss Tafunai said yesterday.

The private judging included three categories, one being the interview.

"I was very nervous because I didn't know what to expect, but when we went in they just wanted to see how confident we were and the way in which we presented ourselves" Miss Tafunai said.

The most prevalent factor in Miss Tafunai's success was the support she received from her family.

"My mum told me that I could only do my best, and that they will still love me regardless of the result and that gave me a lot of strength today.
