Student enters Miss Pacific Island pageant

Main Stories

A final-year student at the University of Papua New Guinea is the sixth and final contestant for this year’s PNG Miss Pacific Islands Pageant.
Kellyanne Limbiye, 23, is doing her final year in political science and is being sponsored by Pacific Assurance Group of Companies.
She said the pageant embodied two aspects close to her heart – feminism and her country.
Limbiye was raised by her mother after her father passed on.
“Being raised by a single mother, I have known no other way to survive in this world but to be strong, independent and gracious in all I do,” she said.
“My passion lies within the challenges in recent developments and I try to push myself and do new things in this growing world and help change in my own little way.”
Limbiye said her family was her biggest driving factor in everything she did.
Each contestant was assigned to a designer from the MPIP Project Runway, staged on July 30, and Limbiye’s designer is Tabu Pelei Warupi.
Deputy chairman of MPIP Molly O’Rourke was grateful for the support of Pacific Assurance Group.
The crowning night for the MPIP will be on Oct 22 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and tickets can be purchased at the House of Germini Shops at Gordon or downtown opposite ANG Haus.
