A diamond glitters and dazzles with its exquisite beauty. This is exactly what Miss Zim Diamond aims to portray through the beauty and brains of the contestants and this is why the diamond is a perfect representation of Zimbabwe and its people. Diamonds are the hardest natural substance known, through Miss Zim Diamond we will demonstrate that throughout the difficult times Zimbabwe has experienced, it remains strong and beautiful.
It is an inclusive venture that will welcome delegates from all works of life, classes, communities, races and tribes to participate as one people, all being Zimbabwean or a part of one Zimbabwe.
It’s more than a beauty platform, with emphasis being placed on contestants who demonstrate entrepreneurial ability, commitment to charitable causes and who portray a positive image of the modern Zimbabwean woman and the beauty of Zimbabwe as a country.
We are looking for exceptional young women who can carry the title with dignity and pride across diverse cultures and act as role models whilst empowering others and promoting tourism on behalf of Zimbabwe. They will be individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems, be ambitious and persistent, tackling major social issues and offering new ideas for wide-scale change.
The role of the platform is to identify young women who will be able to be proud ambassadors of Zimbabwe internationally. The vision is for Zimbabwean young women in the United Kingdom to shine the spotlight on Zimbabwe, tell their stories to the world and inspire one another, build self esteem, and feel beautiful inside and out.
The aim is to develop future women leaders in whatever field they choose to pursue. The world is still mourning the consequences of leaving women behind and the loss that it has resulted. We would like to show that women can be beautiful and still be great leaders & entrepreneurs.
The mantra of both the platform organisers and for their contestants is going to be a quote by Les Brown:
"Always shoot for the moon, even if you miss it, you will land among the stars."
Any negative images of Zimbabwean platforms held in the UK are going to be changed for the better as this is a new beginning. This is not all about the hype, but deliverance of those high expectations!
It will be able to remind the world that beyond all controversy Zimbabwe is still a beautiful country with a future.
Miss Zim Diamond UK will mainly focus on encouraging young women to create wealth and pave the way for financial freedom through Social Enterprise and working with various charities in the UK and Zimbabwe.
We are not political but are passionate about creating admirable images about Zimbabwe & encouraging positive social change. Tourism is a key sector in the country’s economic growth and plays an important role in branding Zimbabwe’s image. Miss Zim Diamond aims to play a vital role in contributing to enhancing the tourism industry in Zimbabwe.
The event will also be a platform for identifying & showcasing talented Zimbabweans living in the UK. It would offer an opportunity to experience something different and for people to create a unique mix on a social level. Zimbabwean designers, musicians, comedians and entertainers will all be given a platform to showcase their talents, encouraging all Zimbabweans to work together.
Miss Zim Diamond intends to begin an exchange programme internationally for the winners to experience and play their significant roles with in the community of other countries so that they may contribute to enhancing relationships among Zimbabweans in Zimbabwe and all over the world.
Miss Zim Diamond will bring the pride back to Zimbabwe as a force to be reckoned with in the fashion & entertainment world, and thus the economic world. Globalisation has also meant a ‘Westernisation’ of habits and trends in the Zimbabwean society. With it comes a watering down of traditional entertainment, popular clothing, and self-identity.
Miss Zim Diamond would play a crucial role in encouraging ownership of traditional lifestyle patterns amongst the Zimbabwean and African population, who constitute a large percentage of consumers of Western designs and entertainment. .
In conclusion, it is a fusion of culture, creativity, individualism, and self-identity. It appeals to the modern youth as well as the older generation who seek to express themselves through fashion and entertainment.
The platform is scheduled for 10th September 2011 but because this is a high profile event there is no time like the present to announce its arrival. The website launch is on Friday 3rd of September 2010.
This will be followed by auditioning road shows around the country, platform contestants who are willing to take part will be required to send in their auditioning video reels showcasing their talents or why they should be in this competition.
The platform aims to make the journey a memorable, enjoyable, worthwhile and fulfilling one. So Miss Zim Diamond is saying we are here, young women come and be part of the journey, and let’s show that Zimbabwe is the place to be! After all word on the streets is ‘Africa is where it is’ so let our generation showcase the positive, why wait on others to do it when we can do it ourselves.
