Local model Sindiso “Sindy” Ndlovu, who represented Zimbabwe at the Miss Multinational in India last Monday, says her participation at the global pageant was an eye-opener and she has vowed to bring home the coveted crown if given another chance.

She finished among the top 10 models at the second edition of the pageant, which is the brainchild of Nikhil Anand, chairman of top Indian entertainment hub, Glamanand Entertainment.
The pageant crowned the United States’ Daniela Nieto as the winner, while Mexico’s Tania Mauricio and Algeria’s Nihed Markria were crowned first and second princesses respectively.
Seventeen models drawn from across the globe converged at the Kingdom of Dreams in Gurugram, New Delhi, where they battled for honours at the pageant which, according to the organisers, seeks to “discover scarlets”.
“My experience in India was amazing; we visited the Taj Mahal, India Gate and the Golden Temple four days before the competition,” Sindy told The Standard Style.
“We had sub-contests like sports competition, fitness challenge and cooking challenge, among others. We had to present a beauty with a purpose video showing the social cause we support in our respective countries. We then had personal interviews that were held on the eve of the day of the final.”
Sindy said if given a second chance to contest at the Miss Multinational, she would welcome it with both hands.
“Yes, I would. I loved the experience,” she said.
“Now that I know the drill, I would be more prepared. My only challenge was that other girls were more prepared for the pageant in terms of sponsorships and they had their personal assistants as well as a wide selection of gowns compared to myself.”
Sindy made her debut on the ramp after taking part in the Miss Teen Zimbabwe.
She has participated in a number of pageants locally, winning Face of Zimbabwe and Miss February. She was among the top 12 at the Miss Tourism Zimbabwe 2016 and recently she was second princess at Miss Tyrones.
