Headman Tendai Cloud

What makes me proud today is my choice of career soon after my HND Human Resources Management and the Zimbabwe Teacher Education Diploma. (1999-2001). This was because ZOU was in its early stages beginning to stretch its wings. I was contemplating embarking on social sciences with other institutions. I was split in between at the time. The first puzzle was how would I manage going to a conventional institution when I had a family to look after everyday. The second one was how would  I manage  a lump sum fee given the small salary I had.
