A Journey of a King from the Islands

It has been a true honour to participate in the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival and to have the opportunity to serve as the crowned King in 2016. The journey has been filled with adventures, challenges, growth, and emotion, and I am grateful for the support and love of my family throughout this experience. My parents have always encouraged me to be my authentic self and to strive for growth in all aspects of my life, principles that have guided me throughout my time as a contestant and as the King.

Despite the difficulties and pressure that I faced during the festival, the love and support of my family gave me the strength to persevere. I am grateful to all the people who have supported me and helped me during my time as a contestant, and I am especially thankful to my fellow contestants, who have become like brothers to me despite our diverse backgrounds.

As the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus King, I have had the opportunity to serve as a role model and ambassador for the youth of Fiji. I have worked with the Ministry of Health to promote awareness about diabetes and its impact on young people, and I have also participated in charity events such as the Wheelbarrow race to benefit the Frank Hilton Organization.

This year’s theme, “Climate Change: Telling Our Own Narratives,” is particularly important to me, as the issue of climate change will have a profound impact on future generations if we do not take action. It is our responsibility to address this issue as individuals, communities, and as a country, and I encourage all young people to take an active role in this effort.

As I pass on my reign to the 2017 Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus King, I wish him all the best and challenge him to continue promoting charity work and serving as an ambassador for the youth. To all the youths out there, I encourage you to pursue your dreams and consider participating in the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival. It has been an unforgettable experience for me, and I believe it can be the same for you. Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus King 2016. Vinaka Vakalevu, Dhanyevad, and thank you. May God bless you.

Let’s look some of the memories from my Journey…
