Police officer to model for Fiji in Asia

LICE MOVONO
Sunday, January 08, 2017

Update: 11:38AM FORMER Miss Fiji ZAIRA Begg will travel to Macau on a wild card entry to represent Fiji at the World Supermodel Finals.

This was after she scored the highest points in the adult category of the competition which ended Saturday.

Despite that she will have to pay her own way to get there and to participate, the 22 year old Ba native said was very excited to be heading to Asia.

The Nausori police officer said she hopes the public attention she received in the pageant will help ease public perception of police officers.

"I hope that my being here will help people realise that police officers are ordinary people who have passions too.  To some extent I feel this may help people to talk to me comfortably."

"I hope people can openly share their sorrows when they come to the station."

Zaira won the evening wear category behind eventual winner, Australian teen Emily Norris-Perkins who won the swimwear category and runner up Tiare Simonis a Cook Island native from Australia who won the photogenic category.
