Zambian Excellence – Monde Zama

 

We are celebrating Zambian excellence.

Introducing you to Miss Monde Zama aka Harmony;
This is what she had to say:

Q – How do you define yourself? What words describe you?

Ans – Smart, intelligent, Outgoing, ambitious, loving, open-minded.

Q – Did you have any key mentors or people who deeply influenced who you are, what you believe in and what you’re committed to in your work and life? Tell me about them.

Ans – 1st would be my Grandparents Mundia and Monde Sikatana. They taught me how important it is to run my own marathon in life. With that, I have always tried different things throughout my life. I’ve been to make up school, I’ve worked at London fashion week, Africa Fashion Week. Then after I got into music. I’ve done music with Ruff Kid, Slap Dee, Dambisa just to name a few. I love performing my music and also creating it. I look to go back into it soon

Q – What would you say most motivates you to do what you do? What are the goals you most want to accomplish professionally and personally?

Ans – Right now I’m a Landscaping Design Consultant. I seek to achieve my daily and monthly goals at work. I would love to help others via volunteering. I think it’s important as a Christian to display empathy and compassion.

Q – Share with me something about yourself that you’re working on improving, what personal development areas do you have?

Ans – I have an EP that I’ve been working on for a bit it’s not complete but I pray that I will have the strength to finish the project. I’m working on my Brand as an influencer online. Check out my Instagram @harmzlondon.

Q – Did you have any life-defining experiences that shaped you into the person you are today? Tell me about them.

Ans – I think the move from Zambia to the U.K. has always been a life-defining experience. There are a lot of differences from what you see on TV to what meets you when you get here.

Q – What is your philosophy in life? What is your favourite quote?

Ans – love is patient and love is kind.

Live, laugh & Love

Q – Given a chance to have dinner with 3 people, who would those be and why?

Ans –

Oprah Winfrey – to ask her what challenges she faced whilst climbing her career ladder

J.Cole – I would love to ask him how he became a great storyteller and thank him for his EP’s for getting me through university.

Chimamanda Ngozi – would love to ask her how she came up with such good reads and her experiences as a feminist

Q – What day-to-day habits do you have that make you successful?

Ans – I wouldn’t say that I am successful. I think praying and meditating positivity into your life is a great place to start.

Q – How have you managed to overcome the social challenges that may hold women back from reaching their goals?

Ans – I just keep going. It’s so hard living in England that I have no choice but to keep going. Your gender does not define you!

Q – What is the vision for your future? What do you still want to achieve?

Ans – I want to be happy. I wish to build an empire of my own maybe within beauty, media or charity. I think it’s allowed for me to not fully know right?

Q – What advice would you give to your younger self?

Ans – I would tell myself to turn the page.
