Zimbabwean model, Letwin Tiwaringe is expected to compete in the Miss Cosmopolitan World Pageant to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia this month.
Media sources say that Tiwaringe will be leaving for Malaysia on September 11 for the event that will be held at the end of the month.
“Camping begins on September 12 and the final will be held on September 30. All is in place for my departure for the big event,” she said.
Tiwaringe is optimistic ahead of the contest and said it will be another chance for Zimbabwe to shine although she said it was not easy to be one of the finalists for such a prestigious competition but would go and represent her country with hopes to grab the title.
Tiwaringe, who is former Miss Southern Africa Zimbabwe (2012), will be competing with more than 30 finalists from different countries and says it will not be an easy battle but we always make sure things take shape as she has prepared well for the event.
“I always told myself that one day I will be a model. When I started it my family was supportive and I am happy they are still behind me in this endeavour.”
The 23-year-old model began her journey as a model in 2011 when she scooped the Face of Chitungwiza title and she has worked with several charity organisations that resulted in her getting recognition from the Philanthropy Institute of Zimbabwe.
Miss Cosmopolitan World 2016 will be held in Malaysia for the second time and organisers are optimistic the event will be bigger.
“We hope in 2016, this event will make a historic breakthrough in the Malaysian beauty pageantry, with contestants from all over the world free to participate.
“This innovation laid a new foundation for regional beauty pageants and further promoted the culture of beauty pageantry in the world. The winner will truly deserve the title of Miss Cosmopolitan World 2016,” said the event organisers via their official website.
