Brooke Bruk-Jackson clinched the Miss Zimbabwe title in September 2023, yet her victory faced widespread disapproval among the public.
This 21-year-old model stood out as the only white-skinned participant at the pageant as the African country is predominantly black.
Following her victory, Brooke posted joyful images on Instagram, but the responses were mostly negative.
One netizen commented, "She doesn’t represent Zimbabwean women, she was only born in the country; she is a foreigner”.
Brooke’s last sentence at the pageant was- “I want people who come into my life not to be inspired or transformed by my looks, but by the things in my heart”, which now holds deeper meaning after the public reaction.
Born on 26 July, 2002, the 21 year old model has ruby as her birthstone, perfect to represent heart in all its love & glory.
Whether it’s ruby or any other precious stone, GemsNY has a phenomenal collection of birthstones for everyone. BTW what do you think of the controversy, feel free to comment.
