About Me

TURNING 23 IN SEPTEMBER 2021.CURRENTLY STUDYING MINING ENGINEERING AT MIDLANDS STATE UNIVERSITY ZIMBABWE FULLTIME.SELF EMPLOYED AS A NAIL TECHNICIAN FOR MY MOBILE SPA.

BECAME REALLY PASSSIONATE ABOUT ADVOCATING FOR WOMEN WHEN I WAS STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL AND HAVE GROWN IN THAT MOVEMENT SINCE THEN.I HAVE BEEN SHARING ALONGSIDE TWO OTHER FRIENDS WITH MANY SMALL GROUPS OF ADOLESCENT GIRLS AND YOUNG WOMEN ON HOW THEY HAVE A VOICE IN THE MAJOR DECISIONS THAT AFFECT THEIR LIVES ESPECIALLY IN REGARDS TO THEIR SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS AS WELL AS HAVING A SAY IN THE CHOICE OF A LIFEPARTNER AND AGE AT WHICH THEY WOLD LIKE TO BE MARRIED.I AM A CO-FOUNDER OF A MOVEMENT CALLED ''I JUST WANT TO BE HEARD'' WHERE WE HAVE BEEN SHARING FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS BOTH ONLINE AND OFFLINE HOW WE AS WOMEN CAN EMPOWER EACH OTHER AND MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD.


I AM HERE BECAUSE I AM A WOMAN WHO ONCE BELIEVED THAT IT WOULD NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE WETHER I SPOKE UP AGAINST VIOLATIONS OF WOMENS RIGHTS UNTIL I SPOKE UP AND CHANGE STARTED HAPPENING.I BELIEVE IN A FUTURE WHERE THE VOICES OF WOMEN WILL ECHO AS LOUDLY AS THOSE OF MEN.I AM READY TO BE PART OF THE MOVEMENT THAT CAUSES THAT CHANGE.
