Ms Falls wowed a packed crowd at the Bank of Baroda Tent Wednesday eveningÂ (19.8.15) showcasing her talent of poetry writing and weaving, simultaneously.
She recited a poem she penned herself and one she calls, Originality. As Ms Falls recitedÂ her poem she continued to weave a fan out of coconut leaves. Originality was based on.Â Ms Fallâ€™s idea of authentic identity of individuals, self-respect, lessons of life that reflectÂ the true meaning of natural beauty to her as a unique individual in a diverse universe.
Thirteen Queen contestants showcased their talents during the talent show which wasÂ also live tele-casted by Fiji TV across Fiji and the Pacific.
Families and friends of contestants turned up in numbers to encourage the youngÂ contestants as they took to the stage their various talents, some of which includedÂ different types of traditional and contemporary dance, singing, poetry, art, drama, andÂ culture. The talent show was used as a platform to advocate on various local, social,Â political and environmental issues that affect Fijian communities and the neighboringÂ Pacific Island nations that our contestants have close cultural ties with.
The 2015 Ms Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Queen will be crowned on Saturday (22.8.15)Â evening at the Suva Foreshore Hibiscus Festivalâ€™s main stage.
