Ruvimbo Harriet Masvosva

Zimbabwe & University of Cape Town, 2024

Harriet is a young African creative with an Honours degree in Business Management. She has a passion for spoken word poetry which has opened opportunities for her to talk about love, social justice, and mental health. At seventeen, she collaborated with other poets to create an anthology called "Pen, Paper, Poets" that sold out almost immediately. The book connected many people who love poetry and feel understood by it.

Harriet values connection and has worked on various social impact projects in mental health throughout Africa. She has also been a panelist at multiple speaking engagements focused on reconciliation and personal development. In 2020, she received the prestigious MasterCard Female Leadership Scholarship at the African Leadership College and has since started her own business and taken on leadership roles on campus.

As an MRF scholar, Harriet will pursue a Masters degree in People Management. The MRF scholarship will allow her to create more meaningful connections with seasoned professionals and leaders and gain wisdom and knowledge from them.

Harriet has a strong love for tea and coffee and is often found with a cup of masala chai in hand. She is also a movie fanatic with a mind filled with over 500 stories to retell and write.
