Dr. Tererai Trent has a story to tell. In The Awakened Woman: Remembering & Reigniting Our Sacred Dreams, she recounts her own personal journey from a rural cow herding village in Zimbabwe, where she married young, to earning multiple degrees in the United States culminating in a PhD. This journey serves as a foundation for what is, in essence, an owner’s manual for women worldwide.

Dr. Tererai Trent’s Story

Consistent with the culture she was raised in, Terarai was married by the age of 14. By the time she was 18, she had borne four children. One day, an American woman from Heifer International—a nonprofit that works to end hunger and poverty—visited the small village. With the belief that anything is possible, she helped Tererai identify and voice her desire to go to the United States and pursue an education. Tererai’s wish for education did not end with her own, but included making education accessible to all women as a means to awaken their dreams.
