Atasa Moceituba
Tuesday, July 29, 2014

HE is committed, dedicated and sees himself in a position that better reflects his experience.

And this year, he hopes to handle a wide variety of responsibilities and use that experience to head a department in the next five years.

Selevasio Stino Lebaiwasa is a student at the University of the South Pacific and also a volunteer for Housing Assistance and Relief Trust (HART).

He is sponsored by Nabua Curry Kona and will contest as Mr Nabua Curry Kona and at this year's Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival. Mr Lebaiwasa aims to advocate on the platform volunteerism.

"Currently, as a volunteer for Housing Assistance and Relief Trust (HART) and have been serving my community for five years, I believe this is a great innovation for me to iron out my perspectives regarding volunteerism, which is something I'm passionate about."

Mr Lebaiwasa describes himself to be someone who is friendly, determined, reliable and someone who takes pride in the things he says.

He considers his family to be his most prized-possession.

"My family because nothing I own comes close to that. My family is what I hold the highest."

The 22-year-old loves dancing, singing, playing video games, and extreme sports activities such as mountain climbing, bowling and social networking.

Mr Lebaiwasa said he could make a difference and a great Hibiscus King through the festival's platform.

He said the Hibiscus Festival was not about a popularity contest saying it's what they do for the community as well as giving back. Mr Lebaiwasa hopes to acquire a position in human resources.
