Chenai Kadungure is a global grad from Harare, Zimbabwe. She in the second year of the Master’s program in Global Studies, with a certificate in International Development.

1. What made you choose UNC/NC when deciding on a program/place to study?

I applied for the Rotary Peace Fellowship which gave me the option of studying at UNC or Duke. I chose UNC as I liked the program offering in Global Studies.

2. What is the most different thing you’ve seen or experienced since being here in comparison to your home country?

The gun culture. Seeing signs on buses about concealed weapons gave me a bit of a shock at first but on seeing that there are gun and knife shows in the USA, I realized it was common.

3. What is something you wish you had known before moving here?

What Sakai was and that Fall weather was so hot. The humidity here was something that I had never experienced before.

  1. Where is a place in your home country that every tourist should visit and why?

Great Zimbabwe. It rivals Stonehenge and The Great Wall in beauty and architecture, and experts have not figured out how such a structure came to be built. Zimbabwe is named after it from the Shona phrase ‘Dzimba Dzemabwe’, which literally translated means Houses of Stone.
