 Meet The Girl Behind The Blog

I am Thembelihle Terry-Lynne Zulu. I was born on the 14th August 1989 in the City of Kings to the late Mr. Nkululeko and Mrs. Nomalanga Zulu. I have two brothers, Simeon and Simon. I also have four little sisters, Bongiwenkosini, Nobuhle, Fezubuhle and Zothile.

I went to Petra College in Bulawayo and got my degree in Journalism and Media studies from the National University of Science and Technology. I am passionate about the arts, women’s issues and the environment and was selected for the 2019 Mandela Washington Fellowship in the Civic Leadership Track. I am the co-founder of Girl Grandeur Zimbabwe, a personal blogger by passion and a publicist by profession. I’m also a freelance writer for publications such as ZimBuzz, Induna Magazine, Divas Inc magazine, Kalabash Media and Kwantuthu Arts magazine amongst others. I aspire to have my own PR and Advertising agency…someday.
