HEY!
I’M

STORYTELLER,
KEYNOTE SPEAKER,
ENTREPRENEUR,
& FIRE STARTER!

Storytelling is my absolute passion. I love celebrating stories of creativity, resilience, advocacy and achievement that remind us of the true heart of success: uplifting others.

What’s my superpower? Helping you choose faith—in yourself, in the goodness of others, in your power to make a difference. I’m all about helping you realize that you were meant for more. I’m here to help you stop playing small! I’m all about helping you fan the flames of your dreams and desires so you can step fully into your passion and your power.

I was raised in a tiny mud hut in Zimbabwe without running water or electricity. At that time our country was segregated, and I remember struggling to understand why I couldn’t play with kids who had a different skin color than me.

But I also remember the magical times spent with my grandmothers around the kitchen fire, as they shared folktales or ‘ngano’ as they are known in my mother tongue Shona. Through these stories, they instilled in me a belief that more was possible for me than what I could see or imagine even though sometimes you have to fight to be seen, to be heard, to feel like you belong…

I’ve travelled a very atypical path to end up where I am today. I’ve worked in factories and
fast food restaurants. I’ve been a business analyst, a project manager, a corporate trainer, a management consultant. I’ve also been a serial entrepreneur, building companies into multimillion-dollar businesses.

But what I’m most passionate about, and what I know is my purpose is to help people
realise their infinite potential through the power of story. I know that stories have the power to move us, to inspire us, to change us. That passion led me to Columbia Journalism School where I honed my storytelling skills using video, audio and writing.

I’ve been blessed to get to know extraordinary people who have achieved the impossible, simply because they believed that they could. I’ve been inspired. I’ve been enlightened. I’ve been humbled and in awe.

And here’s what their stories taught me:

  • Your circumstances do not define you.
  • Your failures do not define you.
  • Your doubters do not define you.
  • YOU define you.

I’ve made it my mission to help people create the best version of themselves through building brands that provide inspiration, encouragement, tools and community.
