The idea of women helping other women, benefits both parties and demonstrates just how powerful every woman can be with the right support. Thembelihle Terry-Lynne Zulu, through Girl Grandeur Zimbabwe which she co-founded, is going the extra mile to encourage women to pursue their dreams. Here is what she is doing to support other women.
I am Thembelihle Terry-Lynne Zulu. I am 27 years old studying Journalism and Media studies at the National University of Science and Technology. I am a publicist by profession and a personal blogger by passion. I am co-founder of Girl Grandeur Zimbabwe, a social club for women of all ages. I am passionate about alleviating the plight of women, developing the arts industry and inspiring the youth to be more ambitious.
FOR the first time ever, a female student, Thembelihle Zulu is contesting the position of Student Representative Council (SRC) at the National University of Science and Technology, Bulawayo. Zulu’s attempt to climb has attracted the attention of Zimbabwean feminists and politicians who think her rise represents feminine progress in a field that is often dominated by men.
The BinItByo Massive CBD cleanup campaign was conducted on the 1st of June and it witnessed a high attendance as participants clocked well into the thousands from the corporate world, high schools and tertiary institutions.
Please tell us about yourself? My name is Thembelihle Terry-Lynne Zulu I am 24 years old this year. I was born into a family of 7 comprising of 2 brothers and 4 little sisters.

I’m glad that 2certain girls’ schools in the city centre have invested in new durawalls. I don’t understand how schools such as this these can understand the concept of concealing children in the house and ordinary parents are completely escaped by the idea.
Thembelihle Terry-Lynne Zulu is the only female candidate running for Student Body President at the National University of Science and Technology in the election to be held on 2 October 2013.
Young people and residents from various suburbs in Bulawayo met in the busy streets of the City of Kings to instill a sense of responsibility by cleaning up their city in a campaign dubbed @binitbyo lead by a Bulawayo based talent casting agency known as Khura Arts
They call me The Complicatxn because I had the drama of the Kardashians. I got to a point where I got tired of defending myself and I decided to wear my new title with grace. When people decide in their minds that they know what you’re all about, they cease to listen to anything you have to say beyond their misconceptions.
A man is like a microphone, a woman cannot speak unless one is present. Chinua Achebe, from Anthills of the Savannah, said; “Only he who wears the shoe can tell you where it pinches.”
TV Yangu, an award winning video production has announced that they will be releasing the much anticipated, “Creative Collective, The Bloggers Series” on 12 June on their You Tube channel.
I started working with Tv Yangu earlier this year on a different project called, ‘The Madhouse’ So when they called me for this opportunity I leapt at the chance. As a blogger myself, it was about time that we had our local bloggers being applauded for all the work that they do. Hopefully everyone that watches this series will be as inspired as I was when we were recording it
My Patrick, since birth I was doomed. The curse was laid when he said, “Congrats, its a girl.” From then on my life was for the birds. You watched from the shadows as I grew up like some sick twisted pedophile. Hovered above me like a vulture stalking a starving African child.”
