Biography c Hello, I’m Rufaro Nothando Moyo. I was born in Harare, Zimbabwe, on the 12th of June in 1993. Being a second daughter and a third born child in a family of 3 children, I looked up to my siblings who had the mandate to teach me the family values. I was raised in a christian home by both my parents attending church every Sunday and midweek services during the week. My parents were leaders in the Zaoga Forward in Faith Ministries church hence my behaviour had to be exemplary. For my preschool education I went to Sunrise nursery school where I learnt to write my name, paint and swim. I proceeded to Selbourne Routledge Primary School where I got my exposure to modelling in variety shows. In these years I was a shy and withdrawn person unknown to my peers. I participated in the first aid club and attained a certificate. My childhood friends Nastia and Natasha had an impact as they also participated in our homemade beauty pageants. When I was in my 6th grade, my mother was using cosmetic products by one Kiri Davies. She had a modelling agency and I wrote to her telling her about my passion for modelling and how I intended to join her agency when older. Unfortunately my mum never delivered the mail and it was recently found by my sister Nomsa whilst cleaning. In 2005 I completed my primary school education and I proceeded to high school in 2006. My academic performance was average as I transferred several times. The last school was a community school in rural areas where I was a boarder. This environment made me realise that I had lived a privileged life and I had to take life seriously. Writing my final exams a term earlier I passed my A levels and secured a place at the University of KwaZulu Natal where I am currently studying a Government and Business Ethics degree. From 2006 to date I have contested in about 7 pageants where my greatest achievement was Miss Glitz Harare title. In this same period I was crowned the first princess title in high school pageants and also first princess in a Miss Summer pageant. Last year I participated in a Miss Bikini contest in Pietermaritzburg where I was crowned second princess. I also took part in Black Opal Face of Zimbabwe where I was part of the 24 finalists. I am currently holding the Miss Globe Zimbabwe title which is my biggest achievement thus far. ———————————– Makadini, ini ndinonzi Rufaro Nothando Moyo.
