For us to be here after 22 years shows great achievement which highlights laser focus and determination. Many thanks to Tendai for coming up with a dream and following up on it. This is good for us Zimbabweans as the winner will go on to promote our nation as a brand, let me say pageants are not beauty alone but an example that a woman should of purpose, move mountains and be a shaker.
