United States-based young Zimbabwean lady Angela Kumirai has made history after she was selected as one of the top 25 finalists out of 10 000 university students to implement a social impact idea.
Kumirai is a graduate cum laude (with higher grades) from the University of Pennsylvania with a BA in Chemistry and in Health and Society.
She was chosen as one of the finalists after she came up with a pharmaceutical initiative that seeks to improve Zimbabwean medication acquisition experience in distant areas to ensure that locals can easily access medicines.
Kumirai said she grew up on a plot in Gweru, and did her education at Fletcher High School where she was the head girl.
She said she attained 20 points at Advanced Level, passing subjects such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Computing.
Kumirai urged Zimbabweans to vote for her so that she could win the competition.
Only the top 10 winners will receive funding for their projects.
