Dr. Thabo envisions a world where all people are given the opportunity to become the best versions of themselves, not only to dream bigger dreams, but to create and shape the world they have always desired. Having lost her mother at the tender age of 14, at her mother’s death bed, she made a promise to her to be a doctor in Zimbabwe. Destiny led her to Canada where she and her family found themselves living in Community Housing in Toronto, subjected to social ills that could have deterred her from her path, despite these circumstances she rose from the ashes.
Her journey leading to the fulfillment of the promise has been one filled with loss, pain, failures, mistakes, resilience, courage, faith, hope, grace and overcoming adversity. Through her dedication to make global impact, she was nominated by Women of Influence and Royal Bank of Canada for the 28th Annual RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards/Inspiring Group for the 2nd year in a row, selected as Top 4 Immigrant Women of Inspiration/Influencers in Canada by Canadian Immigrant Magazine 2019. Dr. Thabo is the recipient of The Universal Women’s Network Women of Inspiration 2020 award.
She is now on a mission to empower, to educate, to encourage, to enlighten, to inspire, to uplift and to motivate this generation to use pain as a pedestal toward the pinnacle of purpose. Dr. Thabo believes that in each of us there lies the power to transcend our circumstances and create from a true authentic space the best versions of ourselves.
