Tongan-born model competes successfully in European competition

    Tongan-born model Tangi-A-Tonga Latu flew back into Auckland yesterday after successfully representing the kingdom in Kosovo’s Supermodel competition.

    She won prizes for being the friendliest contestant and representing her country.

    Latu flew to Europe on August 15 for the competition.

    The competition involved 21 contestants from different countries

    She competed against 15 entrants in the New Zealand Supermodel competition at the Ellerslie Event Centre in Auckland in July.

    Latu began modelling in 2012 at the Davina Fashion show and won first prize of Best Modeling contestant.

    In 2013 her family moved to New Zealand where she competed in the Bous Fashion show, after which she registered for the New Zealand Supermodel show.

    She lives with her parents Lepuha Otukolo and Sela Otukolo and studies at Otahuhu College.

    "I thank God for his support and guidance throughout this journey and I'm blessed to represent the Island of Tonga," Latu said.
