So, April 18 will witness the inaugural Teen Choice awards at Ster Kinekor Theatre, Sam Levy’s Village in Borrowdale.

Miss Teen Zimbabwe, Queen Tanaka Munyenyiwa, who is hosting the red-carpet event as part of her social responsibility brief, said this is meant to recognise outstanding efforts by teenagers through raising awareness on important issues affecting them.

She said the awards were meant to recognise teenagers in various disciplines across the country and help them develop self-confidence and realise self-actualisation through their efforts to impact society.

“During my reign, I chose a project that recognises outstanding efforts of Zimbabwean teenagers through this teen awards event. This is meant to provide teenagers with a platform to be recognised and excel,” Munyenyiwa said.

Zim Teen director, Leslie Gurajena said the awards will help push teenagers out of their comfort zones to become competitive and achievers in their various disciplines.

“This event enables teenagers to have confidence and a confident child can make real change, starting from their disciplines and community with the potential to reach a global audience,” Gurajena said.

Finalists selected through a nomination system are high profile teenagers in business, finance, broadcasting, film and television, radio, arts, sports and academics. These include Tanya Muzinda, Daniel Bekker, teen model Yolanda Chimbarami, Joanna Munengwa, Floret Chikomwe and young academic, Maud Chifamba.
