I am passionate about working with young people in Fiji, involved in my church's youth choir and also joined the Takia outrigger canoe club in Suva where i am indirectly involved in working with young people.
My project is to seek funding for one of our junior paddles hoping to go to Tahiti for the World Marathon V1 25km competition that will be held in June 2017. We are seeking financial assistance to help raise funds for her travel, accomodation and food.
