The Year 9 Australian-based model is not at all intimidated, and is even confident of her chances of winning the World Supermodel South Pacific crown.

The World Supermodel South Pacific Pageant, which takes place today at The Pearl Resort at Pacific Harbour, has a minimum age requirement of 16 years old.

I believe in myself and I know I can do it, I’ll be able to win if I try my best

Faith’s 21 year old sister Margret, who Faith says has encouraged her is competing along side her and so the family have come along to support the duo.

My elder sister Margret is competing in the same competition it’s encouraging and helpful to know I have her there my mum Maraya has flown in as well.

The stunning Gutugutuwai, who is represented by Sydney based Ethnic Model Management, believes her passion to help makes her the perfect representative for the South Pacific but she said she would also give her best and rely on her unique looks to give her an edge.

No matter what age you are you can be the best you can be. I’ll be bringing height fun and curls

I believe I’ll make a good representative because I am hard working, I keep a healthy lifestyle and I have a passion for helping people.

According to information sent to Ethnic Models Management by the Pageant Director, Terri Smith, the models are judged on the way they perform throughout the three day event which ends Saturday.
