HER name is Mere­lin Ngwenya. She is rep­re­sent­ing Bu­l­awayo. Be­low is her pro­file:

My name is Mere­lin Ngwenya. I am study­ing to­wards a Diploma in Elec­tri­cal En­gi­neer­ing ma­jor­ing in Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Sys­tems.

I was born and bred in Bu­l­awayo. I have big dreams and be­lieve every­thing is pos­si­ble if you put your mind to it. I work part time in the me­dia in­dus­try, some­thing that has al­ways been a dream of mine which came to pass early this year.

Be­ing a fi­nal­ist for Miss Tourism Zim­babwe is also dream come true. The pageant, to me, is about im­pact­ing peo­ple’s lives in a dif­fer­ent and mean­ing­ful way. It’s also about dis­cov­er­ing end­less pos­si­bil­i­ties and of course, em­pow­er­ing the girl child.

I love out­door ex­er­cise and hang­ing out with great com­pany, fam­ily, friends and meet­ing new peo­ple. I love ra­dio, in fact I think I am in a polyg­a­mous re­la­tion­ship with al­most all ra­dio sta­tions in the coun­try. I love mu­sic though I do not have a spe­cific genre that I pre­fer lis­ten­ing to, it’s just a mixed bag of every­thing and prob­a­bly de­pends on my mood.

I live by the three zeds that is Zazi, Zithande, Zithembe, ba­si­cally trans­lated to know your­self, ap­pre­ci­ate your­self and be­lieve in your­self.
