    'A touching, deeply inspiring and thought-provoking book written by a trailblazer and a powerhouse. I had goosebumps.'

    From experiencing grief and leaving her home country of Zimbabwe for the UK, to attending disruptive state schools and working long hours to support herself and her mother, Vee Kativhu has faced much adversity.

    But through personal hardship, she has triumphed, using her experience to help people from all over the world recognise their own talent and achieve their goals. From attaining a bachelor's degree from Oxford and a Master's from Harvard to spreading her message of education, equal access and opportunity and empowerment to a global audience of over 300,000, Vee's incredible journey has inspired young people around the world in need of a boost of confidence, motivation and practical life advice.

    In Empowered, Vee draws from her own journey to teach you how to:

    - Set your life goals, career aspirations and actually achieve them
    - Stay motivated in the face of rejection and hardship
    - Learn from your mistakes
    - Take chances, live your best life and don't let hardship define you
    - Cultivate feelings of self-love and self-empowerment

    This book will inspire you how to live a more fulfilled, motivated and empowered life in everything you do.
