MISS Zimbabwe International Tania Aaron is back home after competing at the Miss International beauty pageant in Tokyo Japan alongside 73 models from various countries.
The experience saw Aaron network at the International Women Entrepreneurs Forum where she was given a platform to speak on supporting the disabled as well as the challenges faced by women in Zimbabwe.
Out of the over 70 young women contesting the title, the number had to be trimmed to the top 15.
That resulted in a rare development that saw Aaron competing head-to-head against Miss South African International for a 15 spot.
Aaron, unfortunately, lost to her South African counterpart and failed to make the cut.
Even so, she said the experience taught her that women can achieve anything if they are dedicated to the cause.
One of the biggest lessons for her was realising how powerful women can be when they dedicate their minds to something.
Miss Zimbabwe International aims to inspire big dreams and create a better future for the country’s girls.
The pageant endeavours to crown a young Zimbabwe woman with beauty, intelligence, purpose and “one that can support, uplift, assist and be the ambassador for the Zimbabwe people”.
