The recently introduced modelling contest, Miss Ruby Masvingo, has given models in the ancient city an opportunity to showcase their talent.
This has been a major boost for model Marvellous Ganje, who is now going to take part in the Miss Masvingo Tourism.
“I am going to be part of the Miss Masvingo Tourism and I am looking forward to it. I am well prepared,” Ganje told Standard Style.
“Miss Ruby Masvingo gave me the limelight and I am happy I was one of the girls that were crowned that evening. I am prepared to take my career to greater
heights even though I am not signed up under any modelling agency.”
Like someone starting her career, Ganje does not have many titles to her name like the other models out there.
“Last year I was crowned Miss Masvingo Poly and this year I took part in the Miss Ruby Masvingo where I was crowned second princess,” she said.
In high school she used to take part in modelling contests.
“My modelling career started when I was at high school where we used to have variety shows and beauty contests. Sometimes I participated in those events and
would be crowned first princess and that’s when I realised that I had the potential and as a model I would go places. “This is what I am doing now, nurturing
the talent, I have to be the best,” she said.
The other thing that drove her to be a model are her physical attributes and the passion she has for the modelling industry.
“I have a passion for modelling. I am beautiful and tall, and my structure suits modelling, eg, model hip. In addition, modelling was my dream and it is now a reality.”
Ganje describes herself as a results-oriented individual who sets standards and works resolutely with a positive mind to achieve them.
She is an innovative, vision-driven and hardworking lady studying for a diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management at Masvingo Polytechnic. Her hobbies are
travelling, socialising, playing netball and handball.
