Atasa Moceituba
Saturday, August 16, 2014

HE'S friendly, intelligent and the only transgender woman that modelled in this year's Fiji Fashion Week.

Reigning queen of the ocean and one of the 12 contestants who will be competing in this year's Adi Senikau pageant, Vilimone Tuinavolivoli said he was well prepared and ready to deliver what he wanted to advocate on, in this year's Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival.

He said climate change was real and there was a lot that needed to be done in addressing the issue.

"Climate change is real, it does not only happen in Fiji but in the Pacific region."

"My mother is my role model.

Ever since my dad left us my mum was the one who raised us and stood by us all the time. She is very supportive."
