Thembi Terry Zulu
Get to know the Zimbabwean Blogger
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.

They say black women are loud, but did you know that psychologically people that speak the loudest and have no sense of an indoor voice are people that are dying to feel heard and being loud makes them feel like they are increasing their chances of that? If there were...
