Ruvimbo Maria Kuuzabuwe
Blogger, storyteller, reluctant academic and procrastinator.
I am a 23-year-old graduate in Creative Writing and Philosophy from Manchester Metropolitan University. I have recently completed a Masters in Gender, Sexuality and Culture at the University of Manchester. I was born in Zimbabwe and I lived in a small town called Chegutu, until the age of 7 when I moved to the United Kingdom.
I am also a cis-gendered black woman, refugee, intersectional feminist and a diasporan or “Zim-Brit” as my parents like to say. The list is endless but the point is, these descriptors highlight the complexities of my identity. The nuances of my existence offer multiple lenses to view the world and ultimately inform the ways in which I navigate through it. These lived experiences lead me to develop a means to use my passions as mediums to convey these multiple realities.
I created this blog to share my experiences. I wanted to create a platform that gave me the freedom to be my authentic self. Ruariam.com encompasses the compartments that make me who I am allowing me to share my interests with anyone who feels drawn to it.
I hope you enjoy my content.
