The stunning beauty becomes one of the 12 finalists who will battle it out to be crowned Face of Zimbabwe. The competition seeks to market Zimbabwe abroad whilst raising funds for charity. The pageant is based on public voting which is moderated by highly experienced judges.
Thelma Muvirimi, who has no previous modelling experience, was ecstatic after her win. “I am ready to showcase our beautiful country to the rest of the world and show that despite our challenges, we are still a proud nation,” she said.
One of the judges of the competition, US-based ‘one ariega’ singer, Cee Jay Besa, said about Thelma’s win: “Besides being the epitome of Zimbabwean beauty, her You-Tube campaign video, in which she expressed her passion for Zimbabwe was a convincing, sincere and well-delivered display which showed what the Face of Zimbabwe is all about”.
