My name is Linda Madzara, I was born on the 29th of January 1992 at the Mbuya Nehanda Hospital in Harare. I went to the Heritage primary school in Harare for my junior education, and I did my high school at Watershed College in Marondera. I am currently living in Cyprus where I am doing my degree in International relations at the Cyprus international university.
I describe myself as fun, loving, and spontaneous. I started doing modelling when I was 16 years old although is it was only as a hobby. I used to model for school charity functions and fashion shows. I enjoy modelling because I believe it grooms and etiquettes an individual’s character. I have always wanted to do modelling at a more professional level, but I never really had the opportunity to because of my busy schooling schedule especially in high school.
I am truly blessed to be the person I am today, and I would love to share my blessings with other people thus by doing charity work. I have always dreamt of having a positive impact on other people’s lives. As they say, ‘charity begins at home’’, I started doing charity work at a very young age. I was ten years old. I worked with my parents in developing the lives of the Epworth community in Harare, and we also worked with Nyanga children’s home, that’s in my home town.
I am on the board of trustees for YFC (Youth for Change).I joined this organisation when I was sixteen years old. This organisation is basically a group of young people who help other less privileged children in different aspects like giving them clothes food, school fees, books, and even help them establish their different talents like singing and dancing.
Travelling around the world I have met different people and so many different cultures, and this has helped me appreciate that Zimbabwe is a beautiful country with exceptionally talented people. People I have met from Turkey, Cyprus, and Greece appreciate the hospitality of us Zimbabweans, thus I am proud to say I am from Zimbabwe. People here are yet to see one of the 7 wonders of the world which is Victoria Falls, and other beautiful places in Zimbabwe like the Matopo hills in Bulawayo, the Hwange national park, the Nyangani Mountain, the Kariba dam, just to name a few I have personally visited.
I hope Face of Zimbabwe will be a platform for me to achieve greatness and peel away from working under the shadows of other people (like my parents) to do charity work. I want to share whatever I can with fellow Zimbabweans, and bless them just the way I was also blessed by someone else to be the person I am today.
I leave you with this quote, ‘’ whatever we possess becomes of double value when we have the opportunity of sharing it with others.” THANK YOU
