Khethiwe Ncube

My name is Khethiwe Ncube, I am 22 years old and I was born in Harare. I work and sometimes live on a ship on the Irish Sea. Through my job I was trained in sea survival, first aid and fire fighting/safety to name a few. The responsibilities I have been given incase of an emergency at sea has inspired me to do more and always seek to better myself.

I currently live in Wales where I was educated and will also be studying Biosciences.


I am a creative and outgoing person. I love to make people smile and laugh, I have enjoyed doing so as an actress since I left college. I really enjoyed coming out with my creative and funny side but have decided to pursue a career in medicine.

One of my favourite quotes is by Albert Pine “what we do for ourselves dies with us, but what we do for others remains and is immortal”, it is important to me because it’s a constant reminder that just smiling at someone to make their day or researching vital medicine to change their life are both important in their own way. My Dad always reminds me that whether there is peace or war we always need medicine.

Throughout my time as a Miss World Zimbabwe UK finalist and hopefully as the title holder, I would like to promote good health, education, confidence and happiness amongst other Zimbabweans and people around the world. I believe in being a role model, I will be leading by example.
I am very fortunate to have been recognised for the work I have done. Some of my proudest moments include being awarded Best Supporting Actress at a prestigious BBC Wales award ceremony, to being invited by the High Sheriff of Anglesey’s home for an elegant garden party and being handed a certificate for Young Achievers award.

I have shown that I do not shy away from what I love to do!

My community work has also been recognised by BBC and S4C, they documented my journey and aired it on BBC, the exposure changed my life and I have since worked with numerous people in their businesses and done a lot of charity work.

I love making a difference in people’s lives and I want to do it on a wider scale especially back home in Zimbabwe. I am proud of my roots and went back to Zimbabwe this year!

I am proud to be Zimbabwean and a Miss World Zimbabwe UK finalist. I always tell people in my local area about how amazing the land in Zimbabwe is and that the people are fantastic and hard working! It is time that the whole world sees that and I promise I will do the best to show that!
