Express feelings through drawings

DRAWING was something she once did to pass time.

But the Tadra Kahani Poster Competition has now become a platform for Jeongyeon Kim to express her feelings through drawings.

The Swami Vivekananda College Year 11 student was present yesterday at the drawing competition with her mother Jangmi Yi, who is her greatest mentor.

Kim's poster portrayed the message of climate change and how it is affecting the lives of many Pacific Islanders.

"My poster saw three different ballroom dancers with different costumes. The costumes show the effects of climate change in the Pacific, another shows the different races in the Pacific and third dress shows the elements of climate change," Ms Kim said.

"My hobby is drawing so when I told my mother about this competition she encouraged me to join and has been supporting me throughout."

The poster competition is said to be the face of the event which features students from the ages of 6 and 19.

"For the first time ever, organisers are working with FNU to get the participating students to be mentored by those involved in creative arts," Total Events Limited official Elizabeth Inia said.

The Tadra Kahani show will be held on August 14 at the Vodafone Arena.

The winner of the competition will also be announced at the event where 11 schools will be performing dramas and dances based on themes.
