Taking one day at a time

MISS World Fiji contestant Charlene Tafuna’i knows what it takes to compete on the international stage.

For the past five weeks, Miss Tafuna’i has been receiving vocal coaching by top coaches Michael Irava and Samu Cakau.

She will perform a song as her talent and hopes not only to impress the judges but also the anticipated one billion viewers who will be watching worldwide.

“She has an amazing natural talent that I am sure is going to impress the judges,” Mr Irava said, who with Mr Cakau have six more weeks to prepare the Nadi lass.

For Miss Tafuna’i, she is taking one day at a time.

“To compete on the world stage takes a total commitment. Whether it’s singing, dancing, or presentation, it all has to be the very best. I understand this, and all my waking hours are working towards this goal,” she said.

She leaves for London on November 10 in preparation for the December 14 final.

So far, Miss World Fiji has won an online pageant poll known as Pageantology — beating other four contestants for four consecutive weeks.
