About Me: 

There is a compelling reason for every path taken by every person in the journey of life. I found myself in Portland, Oregon at the age of 16 after my single mother had sacrificed so that I could pursue my education. I believe I have a purpose in making a meaningful change, particularly in the lives of other young women from diverse backgrounds. Self-expression is as vital to living as breathing. It is how we interact with others and the world. It can be supremely fulfilling or irritably frustrating. I strive to make an impact through the various forms of communication, cultural exchange, community engagement and development. I'm a senior at Portland State University pursuing a degree in Communication Studies and Advertising Management. I have always been passionate about the non-profit sector as much as poverty alleviation is concerned. If you educate a woman she directly influences and contributes to the welfare of her family and the community at large. This has the power to alleviate poverty. This is my ultimate career objective.

My Passions: 
Education, Women Empowerment and Social Entrepreneurship
My Vision for the Future: 
To be like a palm tree that has over 100 purposes. To live a purposeful life in every way I can.
My Languages: 
English, Shona
