Miss Nauru performs at State banquet

Lucina has a talent for singing and dancing and her appearance at the state banquet this week (13 May) in celebration of Nauru's 40th Constitution Day celebration was a pleasant surprise for the guests.

She elegantly performed a semi-slow dance in a red and black island dress.

Miss Nauru recently returned from Brisbane Australia where she visited several schools to promote Nauru's culture. During the same trip Digicel Nauru set up a photo shoot with Lucina which was a very rewarding experience for her.

The visit to ADC is part of Lucina’s school visit program which she started as her first community engagement during 22-24 February to promote and encourage education.

Miss Nauru was gladly met by the ADC students and teachers who also sang her songs and presented her with a fan, necklace and matching earrings that they made themselves.

Lucina was moved by the singing and learned a few sign greetings from student-turned-teacher Conroy Detabene.

Miss Nauru then presented the school with trays of sweets, popcorn, muffins and cakes.

Miss Nauru visits schools and promotes importance of education

On pageant night Lucina was asked the stage question “If you were crowned Miss Nauru, what would be your first community engagement, and why?” She responded that education is the key to a successful future and she would promote the importance and value of it.

“Education opens doors and opportunities to change and shape your future,” she told school children.

The first schools she visited were Nauru Secondary School (NSS) and Yaren Primary School together at NSS on Tuesday 23 February.

School children had the opportunity to take photos with Miss Nauru.
