Reigning Miss Heritage Zimbabwe dreams bigger
By Letwin Mubonesi
Reigning Miss Heritage Zimbabwe, Eva Mzondiwa is dreaming bigger as she is hopeful of walking away with the Miss Heritage Global crown.
The pageant is scheduled for October 9 in Abuja, Nigeria.
She said she is more than ready to out shine them all and bring the crown home.
The Miss Heritage Pageant was founded by Taremedzerwa Munzara from Mutare.
The pageant was founded with the aim of incorporating all nations, religions and people from different backgrounds to be involved in the process of initiating positive change in the world through heritage.
This will be her second time representing the country abroad after she participated at Miss Africa in Lagos, Nigeria, where she managed to make it to the top 30.
She said, “I am confident that I will bring the crown home because I have been working hard. I believe that my experience on the stage will help me bag the gong. I am working with one of the best fashion designers Jasper Mandizera from Ivhu Tribe.”
“I am happy that my visa, flight tickets and wardrobe are in order. On 25 September , I will get the national costume and dinner dress. I have a very supportive family that keeps me pushing.”
Mzondiwa once participated in the #EndMalaria campaign during the global campaign launched in 2018 and she has recently organized a clean-up campaign in mosquito breeding areas in Chitungwiza.
The small town was once a malaria hot spot due to poor plumbing infrastructure.
This resulted in burst pipes that went unattended to by council, becoming a breeding ground for malaria spreading mosquitoes.
“I am focusing on spreading awareness of malaria especially to young people and pregnant women as they are affected more by the disease. I believe spreading messages about how to prevent the disease, and its effects could prove very effective in getting to zero malaria infections. I also plan to visit schools,” she said.
