“A man amongst men, Tiritoga had a childlike creativity that was only matched by his desire to change the world. This led him to start the world’s first…” I am still writing my auto biography, I figure that’s a good opener. I am Zimbabwe’s very own child; I came to Canada to learn and to teach. I am a dreamer, an artist, a mad scientist and a natural born leader. I love meeting new people, trying different foods, learning different cultures and learning different dances. I am excited to represent the International Students of Degroote. The world is a giant playground to me and I want everybody to get a chance to play.
