The pageant, which is in its second edition, will be held at the Kingdom of Dreams in Gurugram, New Delhi. It is the brainchild of Nikhil Anand, chairman of Glamanand Entertainment.
According to the organisers, Miss Multinational seeks to “discover starlets”. Women from all across the world can participate in the pageant and last year 35 models took part.
“I am happy that I will be joining other models from across the globe to battle for honours at the Miss Multinational in India,” Ndlovu told The Standard Style.
“I will do my best in India since I have prepared for the pageant as much as I can. So, let’s hope for the best.”
Ndlovu, who made her debut on the ramp after taking part in the Miss Teen Zimbabwe, said she entered into the Miss Multinational pageant following a rigorous screening exercise.
“The license holders of the pageant, Embrace Afrika, made a call for interested candidates and I decided to apply. After a rigorous entrance exercise that involved auditions and interviews, I was selected,” she said.
Miss Philippines Sophia Senoron was crowned Miss Multinational 2018 while Saskia Kuban of Germany became the first runner-up and Shefali Sharma from India came in as the second runner-up.
Ndlovu, who is signed by local modelling agency – XOM – said she was born a model.
“Since I was a young girl I always wanted to do modelling. When I finished high school I entered my first pageant which was Miss Teen Zimbabwe. Although I didn’t win, I enjoyed the experience and decided to continue,” she said.
“I have won Face of Zimbabwe, Miss February; I was among the top 12 at the Miss Tourism Zimbabwe 2016 and recently I was second princess at Miss Tyrones.”
The young model said she got inspiration through watching beauty queens from all over the world on television when she was young.
Ndlovu was recently accorded the most educated model award at the Zimbabwe Model Awards.
“I come from a family of three and I have one elder sister as well as a younger brother. I studied at Eaglesvale and then Cornway College. I went on to study for my degree at the University of Fort Hare in South Africa. I attained a double degree in Biochemistry and Statistics,” she said.
