Tererai Trent- A Game Changer
Almost a month after her statue was unveiled,
Tererai Trent’s life story began in a small town in Zimbabwe, Karoi. This is where she was shaped into the resilient and outspoken lady we see today. She was born in the ‘education for boys only’ era. She never got the opportunity to proceed with her education owing to her father’s decision to educate her brothers since she was going to be married off either way. At that time, it was regarded as a bad investment to send a girl child to school because it would bring no return once the child got married. By the age of eighteen, she had mothered four children. Through all hardships, she eventually made it to the top.
After teaching herself how to read and write from her brother’s books, she surpassed even her brother’s scholastic ability. What drove her to have such determination? HOPE. Hopes of having a brighter future. Hopes of furthering her education. Hopes of helping another victim of abuse and child marriage. It was all in the name of HOPE.
Why live a stagnant life when HOPE can help you further your dreams?
