Pageant announces first show

National

THE Pacific Islands pageant announced its first Papua New Guinean show at the Sanctuary Hotel in Port Moresby yesterday.
The first contestant of the pageant is Miss Sanctuary and Rapopo Resorts 2019, Natasha Metta, from West New Britain.
Chairperson Molley Rau-Lovett O’Rourke said this is the second year for the organisation to host the pageant to reach the target of one million young women.
“The aim of this is to reach out to young women who can be influential in this organisation. Not only that, but also be a game changer in their community, society and let their voice challenge the current law and justice issues, violence and economic problems in the social sectors,” O’Rourke said.
“Over 300 young women have been reached and we will continue to reach our target of one million young women.”
O’Rourke thanked Sanctuary Hotel managing director James J. Pang for his continued support of the competition.
Pang pledged K20,000 to the Miss Pacific Island Pageant.
“I see that empowering women in society speaks of values. When foreign people look into our Melanesian culture, they see unity,” Pang said.
“I want to empower women to be somebody and enhance educated young women to be role models.”
