Miss Suliano, 21, hails from Rotuma and works as a project assistant dealing with HIV issues at a non-governmental organisation, ADRA Youth Development Hub in Suva.
"I do a lot of HIV advocacy and it's very important for the young people to be aware that HIV is real," she said. "I joined this festival because I want to make a difference in young people's life.
"I want to emphasise to the young people that it is very important to have very high self- esteem.
"Once we have that, we can make the right decisions and the right choices in life."
Ms Suliano's hobbies are surfing the internet and photography.
She is looking forward to the challenge and meeting other contestants from August 15 to 23
