Owami to Miss Universe Campaign
I am Ulothando Owami Ndlovu a child of the city of Kings and Queens ko Ntuthu Ziyathunqa, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. I am an 18 year old young lady currently completing the final year of my A’Levels in Harare, Zimbabwe. I have always had an interest in modelling and participated in it in different forms from the age of 10. I embarked on my Miss Teen Universe for the first time in 2022 which was my first major competition. On my second entry I was crowned Miss Teen Universe Zimbabwe for 2023. This is a dream come true for me and a stepping stone to greater heights in my modelling career. The next step in the competition is the Global Miss Teen Universe Pageant which will take place in Columbia on the 20th to the 25th of October 2023. This global stage is not only an opportunity to showcase my country but also an opportunity to realise unprecedented access to the global pageantry world as well as substantial resources to further champion the causes that I am already pursuing during my reign as Miss Universe Zimbabwe.
While I have been fortunate enough to secure some local sponsorship for my makeup, hair and some costs to my local wardrobe during my reign as Miss Teen Universe Zimbabwe, I am in need of substantial financial assistance to be able to attend and compete in Miss Teen Universe in Columbia this year. The funds I am trying to raise will go towards:
1. Plane tickets to Columbia and my pageant wardrobe;
2. Visa application costs;
3. Travel incidentals,
5. Grooming and styling for the pageant;
6. Makeup and cosmetics;
7. Travel and board for at least a single family member to accompany me to the Miss Teen Universe Columbia.
Miss Teen Universe Zimbabwe has kindly offered to assist with my accommodation and board in Columbia but is unfortunately unable to assist with the above expenses. Assistance with the above will allow me to be at par and compete with my peers in Columbia with the hope of realising a global crown. If 5 000 people each donated 2USD they could make my dream come true.
