Durban is gearing up to host the 40th Annual Mrs Universe Pageant after clinching the rights to bring the event to this continent for the first time.
Casting a global spotlight on Durban and tapping into the theme: “Empowering Women. Creating Change”, Mrs Universe 2017 will feature 84 married women between the ages of 25 – 45 from 84 countries who are already doing phenomenal work to uplift and enhance their local communities through charity work, business development and global trade opportunities.
Unlike other pageants, Mrs Universe is purpose-driven, highlighting real concerns and areas for positive change. Mrs Universe Africa Hosting Director, Tracey-anne Buckley Aggett, is the perfect embodiment of this ethos.
