Background: My name is Hillary kuziva Gwinyai, aged 21.I was born and grew up in Harare. I come from a family of three and I happen to be the first born which I do consider and cherish as a blessing as at some point and time of my life, I will have to be a reflection to my siblings and the society as well as setting remarkable examples. I am currently double majoring in Marketing and Information Communication Technology and my short-term goal would be to complete my degree, preferably with a 1st or 2:1, and grow the small media company that I am currently running as well as venturing into other businesses.
I think that a person’s goal in life will and should change as they age and as situations change. Ultimately, want to be able to look back on my life and say that I have really lived – done all the things I want to do. I am really challenged and at the same time grateful for Gods intervention in my life, he kept me humble, I have been corrected, protected and directed. Growing up I have always inscribed on my heart, mind and spirit that I was going to get amazing high school level grades, go to my dream university, get a decent job, give my family a really good life especially my father who has raised me and my siblings alone. I want to pay him back for everything he has done for us and being my role model since day one. Although i know whatever i do will not be equal to the amount of things he has done for me, I still want to make him proud and know that everything he sacrificed for me was worth it. I also want to get married to a woman that loves me unconditionally and have as many kids as God allows me to have want to live in a peaceful warm place and be an extension of Gods hand and love.
In my journey to reach the greater heights time consciousness has always helped me to safeguard most of my personal interests and targets. I have always kept an imagination that one day you wake up, get ready and go to school or work. Before you know it, the day passes. Then a week, a month, a year, a decade, and soon, your lifetime, but what did you do with all that time? On the other hand, more importantly, what is it that you did not do with all that time? Therefore, i have always kept in mind that every life must be used wisely and not thrown away. I still recall my high school teacher telling me “Life is a game of chess, and the other player is Time.” From that moment, I knew I had to enjoy my life. From that very day, I told myself not waste time, because you know what? Time will not come back. Time will not reverse. We cannot buy it. It is one of those things in life that you must really, really cherish. Time will not give us second chances. Therefore, it is my obligation create those second chances. You must open those doors and find those opportunities that is my core ambition now. You change the world every day when you use time, so never say an experience was not worth it. It all matters. Either you helped someone with his or her homework or you just jumped someone into your gang. You have changed the world by changing a person’s life. I have also learnt that when you see an opportunity, take it. You might not get it back. Never let an opportunity pass and if it is too hard, remember that in the middle of every difficulty lies an opportunity.
Vision: To be an individual not keen to triumph at the cost of another’s spirit. To be a person who can feel pain and not allow others to feel it. To be the person who speaks for the one that cannot, to listen for the one that cannot hear, see for the one without sight, and have the ability to acknowledge and celebrate the success of others
To have my conducts always match my words through the grace of God
Delving into the analysis of my wheel of life, spiritually it has been a rough patch and I feel that I have back stepped in terms of my closeness to God as well as my commitment to him. At some point back in my life, approximately at the age of 15 and 16, I had a decent spiritual welfare and suddenly, I feel and surely know that there has been a change, which I will eventually have to address. There is a lot that I have to be thankful to God for this month, just for all the ways he has been speaking to me through messages, ministry and recent events.
I think that my relationship with God has taken on a new, different dimension since the prayer retreats and talks at the end of last month. God seems even more real and the way that I can pray and relate with him now seems relational and personal. In general, I have been able to identity as spiritual thirst a nagging feeling that I personally always had before, of insecurity or of being unsettled. Before, I did not really understand or know what to do about this feeling so I would seek distraction or escape. I do have a moment where I turned to him but it is not big and grand. Sometimes I wish this was different, sometimes I wish I had some big grand story but then again. I have been immersed in God’s life for all my entire life and I cannot complain about that. At this, point and time I am willing to die to any form of be that I have been, so that I can birth the man I want to be. I was born in a very spiritual family with parents who had very clear and strict rules when it came to church. After I was born, as soon as I was able to recognize my surroundings I was in church. I remember a few instances when I received some spanking for trying to lie my way out of going for Sunday school. I look forward to maintain and improve my spiritual life by seeking counselling, praying for revelations as well and taking part in fasting.
Moving on, in terms of love I am on three, have had quite a number of heartbreaks and disappointments. It is my belief that everything happens for a reason and I came to realize that we all have the potential to fall in love a thousand times in our lifetime. Love happens to be the most powerful emotion a human being can experience. The strange device is, that almost nobody knows what love is but why is it so difficult to find love? .That is easy to understand, if you know that the word “love” is not the same as one’s feeling of love. Well my story goes like this; the first girl I ever loved was someone I knew in my first year at high school. Her name was Denise we dated for five good years and eventually she moved to South Africa and opted for a breakup since she could not handle the long distance relationship. Honestly it was quite hectic trying to settle with the fact that I had lost someone I had invested myself into as well as someone whom I thought and prayed to have a future with.
The last girl I am ever going love will be someone I have not even met yet, probably. They all count, more so I came to realize that there are certain people, you love who do something else; they define how you classify what love is supposed to feel like. These are the most important people in your life, and you will meet maybe four or five of these people over the span of 80 years. However, there is still one more tier to all this; there is always one person you love who becomes that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it happens eventually. This person unknowingly sets the template for what you will always love about other people, even if some of these loveable qualities are self-destructive and unreasonable. The person who defines your understanding of love is not inherently different from anyone else, and they are often just the person you happen to meet the first time you really, really, want to love someone. Nevertheless, that person still wins.
They triumph, and you lose. Because for the rest of your life, they will control how you feel about everyone else.”
The first couple of times I read that, I was blown away and did not really want to believe that it was the case. However, the more I thought about the true meaning behind the quote, I realized that it was probably the truest thing I had ever read about love. I love forward to regain trust and move on with life. I am going to work on self-actualization, figuring out my loop halls and amending them. I will keep praying for Gods hand over my love life as well as seeking counseling in order to widen my social and love path
Moving on, in regards to my family I am on seven, which is quite remarkable for now. I am still working on reaching perfection, though it is never too easy no matter how hard I try. Growing up in a family that did not have much in their way, money or material possessions, but who would have given us something more valuable, their unconditional love, their unflinching sacrifice and a chance to go places they had never imagined for themselves. I come from a loving family and I was raised with the idea of unity. In my family, we help one another when there is a need, and we all love to spend as much time together as possible. In our opinion, this is very important because we believe communication and harmony are the elements that can be found at the base of any successful family. Most importantly, I came to realize that family is forever, it is important that the family is healthy. Your family will be healthy if you give it time. Fox quotes that “family is not an important thing, but rather it is everything”. Family time is an essential factor that helps to create strong bonds, love, connections, and relationship among the family members.
Spending quality time with family does help in coping with challenges, instill a feeling of security, inculcate family values, fill every family member with confidence, and much more. I look forward to improve my family tires as well as the way I manage our affairs by being transparent always to other members. I am planning to allocate more time for family, it is sad that we are all haunted by the vastness of eternity and are left to ponder whether our lives will echo across time, many will live anonymous lives and be left to exist solely in the memories of those we loved but for a select few their names will endure for generations which is something I long for I will do whatever it takes to achieve this, as far as my family is concerned. Lastly but not least I have a philosophy that I use when it comes to my family and life which is, if I’m not working on it, it’s not getting done and I’m forever grateful for the gift of the most amazing father that God granted me ,he has always been my pillar of strength ever since I lost my mother. It is my prayer that as a family, whatever great seed of artistry we sore to the ground ought to flourish.
Furthermore, when it comes to my carrier I am on six, meaning to say I am almost getting there. At the end of the way, I want to be recognizing as a prosperous person who achieved all the goals he planned and left a positive impression in people’s lives. I will have to toil as hard as I can to get that recognition and I am willing to do what it takes to get that point. I approach everything in life with affirmative attitude and lots of enthusiasm. I strongly believe that I will be a successful person in my entire life. I want to start making my dreams come true with my degree from Africa University. My goals is start to my career before I get my degree, and I’m currently establishing a small media company which I believe that will make me more successful.
I am double majoring In Information Technology and Marketing but I also got boiler making qualifications and experience. My plan is persuade my career in specifically digital Marketing. My Bachelor of Commerce Marketing Management Honors Degree is going to give me a lot of chance to make a difference in marketing business. After third semester of my study, I am going to embark on projects that relate to my areas of study. I want to start my career from the very first step. I want to improve my skills by learning about my subject. I am willing to do everything to attain these goals. I also want to complete my studies by getting my MBA degree in Marketing. I also want to improve my skills in finance sector. All of my career goals have no geographic or salary. I am willing to relocate anywhere in order to achieve success and gain my acquaintance.
In the medium term of my experience, I would like to broaden my experience by moving abroad, establishing new businesses. By this time, I want to make more specific decisions about my career. My long-term goal would be becoming my own boss and a significant investor in both large and small business sectors that would have proven to be lucrative or has potential to grow. It has become a virtue to me that if I want to have a great carrier I have to pursue my passion as well as pursuing my dreams, I have to pursue my greatest fascination in my life. Therefore, because of this reality, I really need further effort to create happier humanity and century. I am looking forward to have occasional carrier guidance and mentorship to safeguard my carrier.
Health wise I am on five, I came up with a health plan, which I hope will help me lead a healthy life. I am allergic to aquatic foods. With my personal health and wellness plan, I am looking forward to improve my health and being through a stable plan to secure a happy life. I believe this can sit well with my family and loved ones. I am planning on losing 6 pounds by hitting the gym occasionally as well as taking part in health lessons and probably go on a diet every now and then. In order to manage stress I usually pray and meditate before bedtime and every time I wake in the morning. I also read novels to stay stress free.Im prospecting on starting yoga classes as well, and keeping in check my diet and getting regular tests and checkups.
In terms of fun, I am pretty; sure, I have explored and experienced lots of fun with family and friends. I at some point back I embarked on improving myself and creating happiness that could only come to life because of fun. I do not have much of a social life but since I am much attached to my studies and business and hardly make or have time for socializing. I do travel a lot over holidays and one of my favorite destinies here in Zimbabwe is Vic falls. Look forward to foster more and more relationships, which will give me more exposure.
