miss universities 2010.jpgParticipants to this year’s Miss Universities pageant who toured the Great Zimbabwe monuments this Wednesday say the experience has given them a greater appreciation as cultural ambassadors of the country.


In an interview with ZBC News, some of the finalists said the tour gave them a greater appreciation of the motherland and its history.

Organisers of the pageant said the tour which is part of their empowerment and grooming workshops was aimed at empowering the participants as cultural ambassadors as it gave them an understanding of the country’s history.

The Miss Universities pageant which is in its 2nd year draws participants from all the country’s tertiary institutions and is aimed at empowering the girl child through modelling, hence the theme – ‘Beauty with Brains’.

The pageant is on this Saturday at Ochi City just outside the capital.
