Zimbabwean model

Kuda Katanha is a Zimbabwean model based in Philadelphia, PA who launched her career only in June of 2010. Less than six months later, she's already featured in photo shoots and beauty pageants for clothing labels in New York, NY and even came in as a finalist at the Miss ZimUSA 2010 pageant in Washington DC. And to celebrate it all, well, she just released a calendar for her growing legion of fans!

The African Queen, as she is known in the world of entertainment, is a petite 20 year old beauty who played basketball, soccer and netball, and even joined the swimming and track & field teams while attending Avonlea Primary School & Mabelreign Girls High in Zimbabwe. After her family relocated to the United States when she was 13, Kuda also added cheer-leading to her list, cheering along some veeeeery lucky athletes at Downingtown East High School in Pennsylvania. She credits her love for sports and the outdoors directly as a catalyst that keeps her looking and feeling catwalk ready.
