Meet Professor Musawenkosi Saurombe, the youngest PhD holder in Africa, who achieved this incredible feat at just 23 years old. Her journey to success is marked by resilience, hard work, and the sacrifices made by both herself and her family to support her academic dreams.

Born in Zimbabwe, Professor Saurombe set out on her PhD journey at a very young age. Enrolling in college at 15, she earned her first degree by 19 and continued her academic pursuits to eventually achieve a PhD in industrial psychology.

However, this journey wasn’t without its challenges. Overcoming social constraints and making personal sacrifices, like her father selling his car during her third year, became part of her success story. Being the youngest student in her classes also presented its own set of hurdles.
