After setting the tracks on fire at the Coca-Cola Games this year the 19-year-old is looking to better his time at the games.
Powell said with his mother supporting him, anything is possible.
After getting a scholarship to study at IOWA University in America earlier in the year, the track king is looking forward to his first Pacific games.
Powell said it was a proud moment for him to be taking part in the Games.
"I am really happy to be part of the team. This will be my first games so it's very special in my athletics career so far," Powell said.
"It came as a shock to me and it took me time to get over it. But I am glad that I can do Fiji proud."
Powell also highlighted the Coca-Cola Games had shaped his athletics performance until now.
"It has helped me spiritually, mentally and physically for the upcoming Games in PNG and be prepared in anyway possible as competition will be tough, "Powell added.
"I will try to better my time and improve my performance at the games. Any medal would do for me."
Powell will be taking part in the 4x100 metres relay and the 200 meter events at the Pacific Games.
He and fellow track queen Younis Bese will take up their scholarship once they return from the games. Fiji Times
