I left Zimbabwe in 2004 to pursue a Bachelor of arts Degree in South Africa. little did i know that i was going to receive more that my fair share of education. My country was going through its usually political Drama, money was tight and to say i had to work my way through uni is an understatement. After 4 years i graduated. My Leadership journey really began in 2007 when i was chosen to be the ISO President ( international students organizations) .
i made so many friend from around Africa. I suddenly realized that what i thought were major problems in my Home country was nothing compared to the horrors and hardships that my fellow mates where dealing with . BEING in a foreign country teaches you to be humble. it opens you to knew cultural experiences some of which you can never realy prepare for..
in my years in South Africa i went through it all. i was mocked, interrogated, beat up , ridiculed. i was appreciated, respected, awarded, motivated , supported. I fell in love , then fell out of love. I made friends and that by far is what kept me going. i connected with women from fellow African countries who reminded me that i am strong, wise and resourceful.
i learnt that to be a Leader you sometimes need to follow.
