Hey! Tell us who you are and where you’re from.
My name is Fungai Tanya Chimbuya and I am from Zimbabwe.
You are a JA/INJAZ alumnus: What did you do during the JA/INJAZ program and what was your role?
I was a part of the JA Companies Company Program. Our Companies' name was Economic Architects. and iIt was a service provider focused on enhancing the learning of students by providing edu-tours and holding symposiums for the students. I was privileged enough to be C.E.O of the company.
How did your JA/INJAZ experience change the way you approach things now?
I used to be rigid and wanted to approach life, the “right way.”" let me say the norm where I come from, the norm is to finish my high school, Go to University, and study earn one of the most prestigious degrees, and. Secure a good and well-paying job. Being a part of JA and being successful in our company made me realize I could do more than just have an average life. Now I allow myself to dream and go after those dreams. My JA experience even changed my career path. I am glad I got to be a part of JA in high school.
