Zim girl wins Miss Dublin title, vies for Miss Ireland


Mirror Reporter

Ireland – It is beauty with brains for Zimbabwean girl Britney Madondo.
She was crowned Miss Dublin West last month and has now set her eyes firm on making history by vying for the coveted Miss Ireland title at a pageant to be held in Mayo County, Ireland on August 19-20, 2022.
Her road to Miss World will be wide open if she wins Miss Ireland.

Britney is one of the few girls selected to represent Leinster at the Miss Ireland Pageant.
After winning the Miss Dublin West crown, Britney, a film and broadcasting student at the Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) is free to initiate community projects. She will meet captains of industry, local authority and senior Government officials as she fulfills her duties as an ambassador.

About winning the Miss Dublin West and readying herself for the Miss Ireland crown Britney said;
“I decided to participate in the pageant because I wanted to redefine what it means to be flawless. I think society puts perceptions on people to be perfect at anything handed their way. However, I wanted to show that with hard work and belief in your respective skills and abilities that make you unique, you can achieve anything that you set your mind to and that is what makes us all flawless,” she said.

Britney was born in Ireland to Zimbabwean parents and she moved back to Zimbabwe at the age of 11. Instead of placing her in a group A school the parents decided to take her to Avondale Primary School so she could get accustomed to local cultures and traditions.
Being a natural leader, she was selected a prefect the same year. She rose again the following year when fellow prefects and teachers at the school chose her as the head girl.

On announcing her as head girl, the senior teacher said, “The girl I’m going to announce now, is not only loved and respected by students but by the teachers and the Head of this school. We looked for every reason not to give her this and even the headmistress had to personally interview her again. She was left with no doubt that Britney is the best person to be the head girl.”
Britney remains on the Avondale Primary School poster to this day.

She went to Arundel School for her high schooling and she excelled in her academics and played First Team basketball and was a Senior Choir member until she moved back to Ireland just before her ‘O levels. She was elected to the students’ council of her new school and became a prefect until she passed her A level with an equivalent of 14 points in Zimbabwe.
She is now studying Film and Broadcasting at TU Dublin.

Britney is the second of three siblings. Her sister Tatenda went to the University of Groningen in Netherlands where she was elected president of Nexus, a law students association. She is studying International and European Law.
Her mother is Tendai Madondo, former Head of Radio & TV broadcasting at the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC). Her father is Farai Madondo, son to the late prominent Gutu businessman ED Madondo.https://masvingomirror.com
