ADI Laite Cakaunivere wants to help the Labasa Town Council with its smoke-free initiative.

And she will use the upcoming Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North as a platform to advocate on the harmful effects of smoking.

The 20-year-old Tokalau beauty from Kabara in the Lau Group said the week-long event would be an opportunity to voice her opinion on smoking.

Representing the town council, Ms Cakaunivere is among nine other contestants vying for the festival title.

"I understand that smoking is one of the leading causes of NCDs globally and I know that people have died annually because of it," the FNU student said.
