International trade lawyer, writer
Mother of an 11 year old boy
If you’re an international trade lawyer there’s only one place to be and that’s Geneva. I studied in Zimbabwe, Cambridge (UK), Austria and then moved straight to Geneva to work as a trade lawyer. Then I took three years off in Zimbabwe, where I was trying to write, but discovered that I was the kind of writer who needed to make time to write rather than do it full time. I fit writing around my working schedule now and it works very well.
We are an unusual family in that we all live in different countries: our son attends a boarding school in Scotland, I’m in Geneva and his dad is in Zimbabwe. I sometimes think I became an accidental mother. I was never a traditional woman in the sense that I wanted marriage and children and a white-picked fence. It’s something that happened to me and I’m very happy for it. I feel my son has completely changed my life in a way that being a lawyer or a writer hadn’t. He is the one person I can truly be myself with. It’s unconditional.
