About

Who Am I?

I am a strategist, critical and data analyst who is fueled by compassion, curiosity, and dissatisfaction with the status quo. As a student at Minerva Schools, I have developed an excellent eye for detail and a holistic view of the world while experiencing and learning new skills to reshape the future through data analytics.

I was born and raised in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe; have lived in 8 countries, visited 16+, and wish to go to all African countries before turning 40. I believe energy comes from experiencing new things, traveling to new places, meeting new people, and learning more about the world around us. The potential to learn something new lies in every conversation with every new person met, every new place traveled, and every new experience.
