Zuma is 20 years of age and works as an international model, entrepreneur and a final year Bachelor of Live Performance student at AFDA. Her talents include sports as she played hockey for the KZN provincial team for six years.

Zuma describes herself as unapologetic, determined and resilient and what she loved most about KZN was how united the people living there were and how deep-rooted everyone was. She believes what makes her unique is her ability to inspire and motivate others without being physically present.

She also says that the diversity of culture in South Africa fascinates her and she wishes to remove as many homeless women as possible off the streets and provide better living conditions for them.

Zuma is the youngest contestant in the competition but is indeed ready to face my power. She considers herself as a fun person and a powerhouse strong enough to climb the highest mountain to get to her throne and stand up for all the women, children and her country.

The stunning beauty is ready to face her fears and inspire every individual that sees her as a role model. Zuma wants to continue to use her voice and this platform to further make noise about the struggles faced daily due to GBVF. She also wants to spread the message of self-acceptance and be able to tell her story with the hope to ignite fire in all individuals who doubt themselves.
