To my dearest mentor Cindy Bishop,
When I read an email sent by Rachael, I said “wait a minute”, could this be happening to me? In a twinkle of an eye my limbic system felt my heart’s pulsation and started generating watery fluids, yes I was crying tears of joy.
You are one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received in my entire life and I’m eternally grateful for the commitment to see someone you’ve never met learning from your wealth of experience. You are what I need and you are perfect for me. I still don’t understand what love is but your decision to take this journey of the unknown with a complete stranger is a definite definition of what love is.
I’m passionate about education as you are and I would also like to initiate a centre where I come from. I am a 28 year old mother of two children, a television and project management graduate and most of all a community development worker. I’ve always wanted to write but many a times I was told that I’m not good enough so I gave up until I saw my email calling for the Voices of Our Future applicants. I saw it as an opportunity to do what I’ve always wanted to do, to share our stories through writing.
Let’s take this journey of love, of sharing together my dearest mentor, please take me under your wings and think of my dreams as your own. I will do the same.
With so much love.....from Rudzanimbilu
