Rudo ZendaLocation: Cape Town, South Africa
Rudo’s name means ‘love’ and that’s what she exudes: a love for creating things and expressing her creativity. She has a huge desire to learn anything and everything – working a computer is at the top of her list!
Rudo grew up in the town of Mutoko in Zimbabwe, a town she still loves to visit.
She didn’t finish school because her parents couldn’t afford the school fees, so she went to work on a flower farm. After that she taught children at a primary and secondary school. She came to Cape Town in 2009 to look for work. “Life was tough in Zimbabwe. We couldn’t even buy basic things like food, so I moved here and found Taunina.”
She is inspired by nature themes and says Table Mountain is one of her favourite places.
