Miss Universe Zimbabwe reflects on reign


February 13 2011 was an important date in Lisa Morgans life when she was crowned Miss Universe Zimbabwe at the Miss Zimbabwe pageant held at the Harare International Conference Centre.

The 21-year-old model, who is an Architecture student at the Harare Polytechnic College, said her reign had taught her a lot about modelling and gave her a better understanding of her country.

Her reign ends on March 23 when winners of this years Miss Zimbabwe pageant will be crowned.
Before I was crowned, I was just an ordinary girl who had a life which revolved around drawing and reading.

I didnt know much about other sectors in Zimbabwe but through the reign I learnt a lot and I undertook to market Zimbabwe at various platforms.

She added she would pursue her Architecture and Financial Marketing studies after her reign and continue working at the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority.

The beauty, who took up the Renal Ambassador role last year, also managed to assist some kidney patients through her awareness campaigns.

She partnered with various stakeholders in the health sector to give members of the public free sugar and blood pressure tests.

She also sourced funds for the treatment of some kidney patients.

My belief is that the end of my reign should not be the end of my vision, therefore I will still be part of this campaign.

My passion is to see a change in the lives of those who suffer from this problem and my ambassadorial role again gives me a deep conviction to do anything to make a difference for these people, she said.

During her reign, Morgan had the opportunity to rub shoulders with the celebrities and travelled around the world where she learnt about Chinese, Spanish and Portuguese cultures among others.

Morgan, who represented the country at the Miss International beauty pageant, said she enjoyed being tasked to represent her nation.

The pageant gave me a huge responsibility to represent every individual from Zimbabwe.

I did so well by showcasing our culture through dance and the national dress, a move which saw me being crowned Miss Expressive, she said.
