Ten (10) models battled for the Miss Zimbabwe Grand and the eighteen (18) year old Scholasticah Tendai Makoni emerged as the queenAmanda “Mandy” Mpofu and Ashleigh Chiedza Mutenda were also crowned fisrt and second princess respectively

Speaking to the MODEL GUIDE crew the Queen said “ i have archieved one of the biggest dreams i had in mind since i was five years old. I have always wanted to see
myself on the stage and at the same time winning the crown.

Scholasticah is under the HEERA modeling agency,
which is in Botswana and she last year she won a local
pageant there called Miss Mogoditshane .She had to come all the way to Zimbabwe for this pageant Amanda, when asked how she felt winning the first princess crown she said “I was flabbergasted! I mean in the course of the preparation for the pageant, I was always one of the few contestants that was constantly corrected on how to walk etc. I guess that was mainly because I’d never taken any modeling lessons or anything related
to that so upon witnessing the level of genius that the other contestants possessed, I kind of lost hope. So honestly, I was surprised but at the same time felt a sense of pride, fulfilment & achievement engulf me. I could just
rewind that moment because from then onwards, I’ve been motivated to pursue & do more.”

The second , Chiedza Ashleigh Mutenda sais “I’m striving to help the less privileged facing financial instability, so that have the same amazing opportunity we also have
to enter pageants, have a chance to showcase their talent and celebrate beauty. I also advocate for the wellbeing of the women in prison and aim to improve theirsanitation so that they however enjoy their womanhood too. Besides this, I’m striving to successfully invest in an agricultural and tourism project that will not only benefit the economic system in Zimbabwe as well as the tourism sector but also constantly supply the Miss
Zimbabwe Grand firm with financial aid that can help in charity. Lastly with all this I plan to become a successful town planner and demographer
