“As a young girl who grew up in Bulawayo, I have had the opportunity to travel and leave the country to start my own entrepreneurship journey in another African country. I have a lot of women that look up to me, they send me questions on social media. These women are beginning their journeys in their chosen fields and I never have the time to answer to everyone who reaches out. Therefore, I have always wanted to talk to women from my hometownabout my journey, the struggles and how it has been thus far. I love what unHeard Series is all about, its about us lifting each other through our stories”– Berita
