Hi, I'm Tinotenda, an aspiring Neurosurgeon from Zimbabwe - Video Transcript

Back to video


Tinotenda, Secondary Student, Zimbabwe Education my power! I answer to the name Tinotenda, the Junior MP for Gokwe Central constituency, and I’m also the vice Head Girl of my school. Education is indeed power. Ever since CAMFED, I have learnt a lot at school and I’ve also been exposed to many opportunities. Like I am right now, a junior parliamentarian.

I am a girl with the dreams. I dream of becoming a neurosurgeon some day when I’ve finished my studies. I have told myself I’m going to make sure this dream of mine helps me to set up an organization that will help the young girls and young women out there.

My fellow colleagues, I urge you to work really hard. You have got the potential and you are capable. Hard work, dedication and willpower. With this, only the sky is the limit. Let us embrace education as it is a tool for empowerment. With this, I thank you.
