LOCAL aspiring beauty pageant contestant, Ms. Tiare Haro has underlined her strongest ambitions to advocate on the relevant issues affecting women and climate change in the Solomon Islands.

Miss Super Star Corporation, Ms. Haro confirmed that her objective to enroll in the 2019 Miss Solomon Islands Pageant Contest was purposely to empower and give voice to the underlined and unresolved women and climate change issues affecting the vulnerable population and communities in the country.

“I decided to be part of this (life-changing experience) year’s Miss Solomon Islands Pageant Contest because I want to advocate more on the relevant action plans that can empower women and girls.

“I would also want to campaign on the possible mitigation strategies to combat climate change issues in the country,” she exclusively told Solomon Women.

The 19-year-old is ethnically from (the respective provinces) Malaita and Western. She has previously [in 2018] graduated with a form seven certificate from King George VI and now employed as an office assistant for the Managing Director of Women Group of Companies.

Ms. Haro is also very instrumental in the daily succession planning of the company.

She visualized the contest as a platform to support young women in taking up responsibilities, and actions that will make a positive contribution towards our country’s hopeful future.

“Sometimes, girls often want to hold back whatever they are passionate about, however, my advice to young women in the country is to take up the challenge and pursue your future dreams,” the young female contestant said.

Ms. Haro clearly knows the negative impacts of sea-level rise and coastal erosion caused by the effects of climate change on her island home of Walande in the southern remote region of Malaita province.

“My native people of Walande have experienced a lot of suffering caused by the effects of climate change – our islands are lost beneath the waters.

“I want to make sure relevant actions are taken seriously by the government – there needs to be more awareness on action plans especially to create activities that will involve people to help reduce emissions and our carbon footprints,” she added.

When asked – how would it be like to become Miss Solomon Islands, Ms. Haro said that it would be a great honor and responsibility.

“To become the Miss Solomon Islands 2019 would be a great honor and responsibility for me. More especially, to take up the responsibility and voice our cries about climate change to other pacific island countries.
