We celebrate the second week since the launch of our book and I have to say, the authors and I are overwhelmed by just how many messages of encouragement and kudos we've received from our families and friends across the globe. To all who have gotten the copy of our book - a resounding THANK YOU!!! Reinvented Today caught up with Tsungi Fundira to go over her 5 questions on what inspired her to become one of the co-authors of "Reinvented & Victorious: The Anthology". Check out her interview...
RT: Tell us about yourself: name, location, and why you are reinvented? TF: Tsungirirayi Emelda Fundira,Hartbeerspoort,North West,South Africa. Am reinvented because of life’s experiences. It's either life experiences kill you, put you down, harden you, destroy you OR reinvent you. Am glad to be here as a living testimony. RT: What has the journey of sharing your story been like for you? What do you believe now was the right time to give people an inside peek into what has made you the woman you are today? TF: Putting pen to paper to produce this chapter was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Up until the time, I never thought my life’s experiences could actually teach anyone. However the more I was forced to reflect and dig deeper into my life, with tears running down my cheeks I found myself writing and being convinced I was not alone in my personal struggles and achievements thereof. There is always a reason and a purpose why things happen the way they happen. This time was the appropriate time for me to share my story and a journey to self -discovery.
RT: You have now added the title of “Author” to you list of accomplishments, or perhaps you fall under the list of women who long began telling stories through written content. Talk to us about why you believe it’s important for the African woman to be at the forefront of sharing her story, given today’s competitive media space. TF: Aside from competition, your story is unique to you, no one can replicate your life’s experiences. So we owe it to the World to educate through our own unique stories. The African woman has always been a story teller time immemorial, a natural counselor. The sad part is, it was never documented enough. It is time in our generation that we begin to change this through our own writing. RT: How do you hope your story will impact the lives of the readers of “Reinvented & Victorious: The Anthology”? TF: I pray that in as much as I have been driven and encouraged by my co-authors to write my own unique and authentic story, in some corner of the globe the story will give meaning to someone’s life. We often go through life feeling like we are trapped in a maze and in search of the reasons why this is so. Then there are times we fail to acknowledge God in our lives when down trodden and we do not give him enough glory when life is good. However my life has taught me that no matter your circumstance God is always there. He does not forsake us. Knowing this helps us not to panic about life or too be to excitable. God humbles us and keeps us balanced.
