Kudzanai Tembo: Capturing Zimbabwe's Rising Sports Stars
For episode 30 I had the pleasure of having a conversation with Kudzanai “Kayz” Tembo, national hockey player & the founder of Rising Stars; a media company with a focus on shedding light on Zimbabwe’s young sporting talent.
In his last year of high school, Kudzanai missed out on 2 hockey scholarships as a result of not having any video content to showcase. Driven to ensure that this would never happen to anyone else he started Rising Stars and has now helped many young Zimbabwean athletes get scholarships and contracts at word class institutions around the world.
In our conversation, we spoke about his dream for the company and his ideas on what could be done in Zimbabwe to better nurture and retain talent.
