YOUNG people need to use their talents to create something for themselves, says an aspiring artist who earns a living with his skills.

This was the message by Waisake Naiqina, a young man who expresses his talent and skill through carving.

Speaking in the iTaukei language Mr Naiqina said he and four other boys started their business by drawing and weaving magimagi (sinnet) at the Suva Handicraft Centre.

Mr Naiqina said the group decided to start their own carving business from thereon and since then, the group has spent the last three years expressing themselves through their work of art.

Mr Naiqina said the group had always sold their handiwork along the streets of Lautoka, Nadi, Levuka and Suva.
