Gertrude Matshe, 2006 - Businesswomen - 254 pages
Getrude Ruwadzano Munyaradzi Matshe is a vibrant bundle of African energy whose drive, zest and passion for life inspires others. Born in Zimbabwe 39 years ago Getrude now lives in Wellington, New Zealand with her husband and three children. In this autobiography she shares her many adventures on the road to arriving in the Land of the Long White Cloud. This wonderfully inspirational and motivational narrative illustrates what can be accomplished by a person who has determination and faith in achieving personal goals. Her guiding philosophy of life is encapsulated in the African concept of Ubuntu. This refers to the respect and compassion people show one another. Her own life story reflects Ubuntu as she finds herself in difficult situations and experiences support from individuals who are friends and mere acquaintances. She also tells of the human loss and heartache caused by AIDS in Africa. She asks that people become open and available to each other as they share their space on the planet.
