Samoan beauty queen says charity work is very important

Samoa's entrant in this year's Miss World pageant says her charity work is one of the most important aspects of being a beauty queen.

Penina Peau will be travelling to Jakarta in September as the first Samoan entrant in the Miss World contest in 25 years.

She's based in Auckland, but says the contest involved Samoan girls from several different countries, and she's proud to represent the country.

Ms Peau tells Bruce Hill that beauty contests are sometimes criticised for being about external appearance, but these days things like charity work are just as important.

Presenter: Bruce Hill
