Born into poverty, uneducated and married, Dr. Tererai Trent was already a mother of four by the age of 18. Little did she know that a chance visit by an American woman, who inspired her to dream would lead to her mother encouraging her to write her seemingly unachievable dreams down on paper. This became the starting point for an inspirational journey to making her dreams a reality.

Dr. Trent could not have imagined that her steadfast determination, hard work and belief in her dreams would eventually earn her multiple degrees, and a prominent global platform with world leaders and international businesses and audiences where she advocates for universal access to quality education.
