Prepa­ra­tions for Miss World 2016 are grow­ing, ac­cord­ing to Pooja Priyanka. Since be­ing crowned Miss World Fiji 2016 in May, she is set rep­re­sent our coun­try at the Miss World Pageant in De­cem­ber in Wash­ing­ton DC, in the United States. Orig­i­nally from Lau­toka, Ms Priyanka now re­sides in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia.

She aims to bring the in­ter­na­tional Miss World crown home and says her big­gest sup­port comes from her fam­ily, who are help­ing her pre­pare.

“There is def­i­nitely plenty to keep me oc­cu­pied,” she said. “From speak­ing to de­sign­ers with the out­fits we want to show­case, rep­re­sent­ing our is­land na­tion at its best, to go­ing to the gym to in­crease my fit­ness ev­ery day. “The most ex­cit­ing is plan­ning our project for Beauty with a Pur­pose –- that’s what I am look­ing for­ward to the most.” She said when she ar­rives in Fiji this month, she would fi­nalise her plans and start work on the Beauty with a Pur­pose project. “Beauty with a Pur­pose project is one of the most im­por­tant fac­tors of the pageant and we are fo­cus­ing on re­lief ef­forts, on what the Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Win­ston has done to Fiji,” she said. “We will work on rais­ing funds to do­nate farm­ing equip­ment to farm­ers and help TC Win­ston-af­fected peo­ple. “And I’m still work­ing closely with our spon­sors and our lat­est part­ner Fiji In­ter­na­tional to help us achieve our goals for Miss World later this year.”
