The 20-year-old beauty said: “My goal is to bring about change in Zimbabwe by ensuring each child has access to education, empowering them to become the leaders of tomorrow and rebuild Zimbabwe.”

Mukombe said she also wanted to debunk the notion that beauty was only for fair-skinned girls and would use the platform to inspire young dark-skinned girls to be confident while empowering them to pursue education and explore business opportunities.

Mukombe, who migrated to the UK at the age of five, said although she grew up in the UK, she still carried herself as a Zimbabwean because her roots where in her home country.
