She rose to national stardom after she scooped the Miss ZimGold crown a couple of years back, 2015 to be exact.
But who knew that same 20 year old stunner who turns heads wherever she goes was an entrepreneur in her own right, an aspiring actress and musician at that....?
Delight Swedens has definitely been keeping herself busy these last couple of years and very soon the world will get a clearer picture of what has been going on behind the scenes.
"Quite a lot has been keeping me occupied lately..I have businesses that I am starting, working on getting my music career off the ground, working on my first book being published before the year ends and also on establishing myself as an actress. Like they say...'if your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough', lol", said Delight.

Gifted with an angelic voice and song-writing ability like no other, she will definitely not be the first beauty queen to transition from the runway to the stage, locally the likes of QueenVee have done so successfully.
"I have always been very fortunate enough to be gifted with an angelic voice. I first discovered I had the voice of a Nightingale when I was about 10years old and I grew up singing in church and at school.
"I have always wanted to be a great singer and I have penned down so many songs that I have lost count. I feel now is the time people got to know Delight Swedens as not only a model,a businesswoman but also a great singer also. I am so ready for this and I can guarantee you that by next year, my music career would've taken off the ground, I am positive that many will be inspired by my music", she said.

Not only does she have the talent and wherewithal to make it as a musician but as a bussinesswoman as well.
"Born to be a model, I have always been in love with glamour..so when the idea of starting a business came along I had to go with what I love the most, glamour. For starters, I thought, how about I start my business somewhere where competition won’t be that much of a headache. I then opened my clothing retail business in Kadoma but once I got there I realized that this place is also home to a lot of gold miners and so now I am working on mining equipment retailing as well.
"I also recently opened up a chicken farm in Mutoko. My aim is to not only be a success but inspire other young businesswomen out there. To be honest, this initial stage is stressful and hard, but worth it...if the road is easy, you’re most likely going the wrong way", said Swedens.

So what is the secret to it all.......? We asked the 20 year old.
"My secret is dedication and I am possessed with that sense of achievement that begets hardwork. Many people told me it was too much, that I was too young to handle it all but all their words never pinned down my wings. I’ve never stopped believing in myself and not even a shadow of doubt ever crept up on me in terms of my ability because once you start asking yourself if you can really do it, you’re inviting doubt. Yes, it is hard trying to balance the time for all these things..that’s why I don’t have to try, I just make it happen...there’s no need to rush...I take my time and let things flow in the hands of the Almighty...and when something goes wrong I just remember that tomorrow is another day...another opportunity. I was raised to go for whatever challenges me", said Delight.

Though the Harare born and bred beauty has taken an indefinite break from modelling for a while to focus on music, film and business, she however concedes that modelling will always be close to her heart and that it had given her a lifetime's worth of memories!
"I have taken a break for a while since it has been something I only did for fun.The next time this multi-crown wining queen returns to the industry, she won’t be doing beauty pageants anymore. I’ll be more into runways, advertisements and grooming aspiring models.
"Everytime that I made it in the beauty pageants, I felt like the most beautiful girl in the world and each and every one of those times I got to learn what it took to be a model and it did wonders for my self_confidence! I cannot forget the fun I had traveling..making friends and socializing. All these are such beautiful and memorable moments that I will forever hold on to", she said.

Even with her modelling career being put on the backburner for a while, she remains as determined as ever before to chase down the rest of her goals and establishing her own empire.
"My sights are firmly set on chasing my dreams and inspiring all age groups. They are set on making people realize that being a young orphan doesn’t mean the end of the world but the commencement of a new you that’ll have to decide whether your way up is turning into beggar or building your own empire.
"My sights are also set on affirming my belief in the Most High, God and never forgetting where I came from...where I’ve been and where I see myself going", said Delight Swedens as she signed off.
