MISS Fire and Ice Olive Vatunilagi was pleasantly surprised when her name was announced as the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus teen queen at the Valelevu grounds on Thursday night last week.

She shed tears of joy when she walked up to receive her crown as the new teen queen in front of hundreds of people during the crowning night.

The 16-year-old said she did not expect the win.

“This is so unbelievable and I am just thankful to everyone who has been supporting me,” said Olive.

The Year 11 student of Suva Sangam School thanked the Lord for helping her through the journey.

“I also thank my fellow sisters (contestants) who are also my family. They were always there inspiring me throughout the journey,” she said.

Olive dedicated her win to her parents who are abroad and her schoolmates.

“I also thank my fellow contestants for being part of the competition and advocating on issues that affect Fijians,” said Olive.
