WITH 12 young women of various backgrounds vying for the Digicel Bula Festival crown next month, contention for the Queens crown is expected to be an interesting affair as an assortment of issues will be advocated.

These topics range from health and social concerns to a call for more financial assistance for higher education and tourism.

Among the line-up is Miss Laser Electric, Amelia Tuifua, whose volunteer work with the Reproductive and Family Health Association in Suva inspired her to continue calling for an end to discrimination against carriers of HIV and AIDS.

"I volunteered for a few months at the RFHA last year and it changed my life. I want to highlight the stigmatisation of HIV and AIDS and its prevention," the 19-year-old said.
