Miss Malawi Irelands to venture into charity, speaks to Nyasa Times

Newly crowned Miss Malawi Ireland, 25 –year-old Denise Zambezi has said charity work is one of the most important aspects of being a  beauty queen.

In an exclusive interview with Nyasa Times after being crowned last week Saturday in Dublin, Zambezi a trained lawyer who is studying for Masters in international human rights, said  she was motivated to join the contest to get the platform of  doing charity work for the impoverished people in Malawi.

“What motivated me to join the beauty contest is that I would like to represent Malawi in a positive light and Miss Malawi gives me the platform to do so. It will give me the opportunity to start become more associated with charity organizations and promote and bring Malawi culture overseas,” said Denise.
