THE effects of climate change on human lives awoke Ravneel Vikash Ram's inner voice and inspired him to contest in this year's Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival.
He hopes to use this year's theme as his platform as this was the only way he could help preserve the beauty of the environment.
Mr Ram describes himself as someone who is confident, talented, energetic and a man who cares for others.
The 23-year-old lad from Nakasi lists his family and friends as his most prized possession.
"My family, friends and my nation indeed are my most prized possessions, I want to see them all happy, free of problems and living happy lives," Mr Ram said.
Participation in groups and involving himself in community work is something Mr Ram is not new to since he loves doing things for others.
"I am involved with The Fiji Times, writing articles about my society and community for better living standards for all."
While studying, Mr Ram is also an employee at the Fiji National University.
He loves taking new challenges, researching, writing new stories, helping others and sees himself to be an inspired role model in the country.
