Addressing peer pressure

Shayal Devi
Wednesday, July 30, 2014

YOUTHS are the leaders of tomorrow hence their needs and problems have to be addressed now.

This is the view of Sinead Nasau, one of nine contestants vying for the Ba Riverside Carnival crown.

"There are a lot of issues that youths face but one of the most prominent of these is peer pressure," she said.

"This is why I will advocate on this issue when the Ba Riverside Carnival begins next month."

The 20-year-old Yasawa lass is a sales representative.

She said advocating issues affecting young people during the carnival stage would send a message across to all.

"I am also looking forward to the carnival as I will get to experience a lot of things.

"I am also proud to take part in this competition because it is a very important event for Ba."

She is also hopeful the competition will boost her self-confidence.

"The biggest challenge for me would be facing the large number of people that will gather for the event. Hopefully, I gain some experience in public speaking as well."

Ms Nasau urged members of the public to support the carnival.
