Miss PNG and Pacific Islands

Havora’s journey far from over

Abigail Emma Kila Havora’s journey began with a single speech on September 16, 2015, that turned her life around.

Turning 24, she promised herself on September 23 to make history for her country, a promise that has pushed her to bring back the regional crown from the Miss Pacific Islands Pageant in the Cook Islands last year.

Part of Havora’s journey ended last night when she transferred the crown and sash to Kellyanne Limibye, who is now Miss PNG 2016.

These young women are setting the standard of what it means to be a leader by getting involved in charity work and giving back to the community.

It can be through representing the country as Miss PNG or as a youth participating in hosting the FIFA Under 20 Women’s World Cup in the country, next month. 

Miss Pacific Islands: Talent, passion and potential is key

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the National Gaming Control Board national junior netball championships this morning, Havora told the 70 participating teams that netball has a huge potential to empower women in the country by breaking down gender barriers.

“The championships are a chance to showcase your talents but at the same time, it is a vehicle to interact with each other, make new friendships and build networks. This is the essence of the event,” said Havora.
