Tendai Manyika, 23, Zimbabwe

“For me, real success is having a job that allows me to pursue my passion in life."

"And that passion is cycling. It has been since I was a young boy growing up in Zimbabwe. After school my brother and I would jump on our bikes and cycle all over the neighbourhood, causing havoc. I was a bit wild back then – wayward but not bad. The thing I loved most was cycling with my brother up into the hills at the weekend. We felt like explorers and loved being so close to nature. We were so adventurous. Then we’d freewheel back home, tired and hungry, but very, very happy. 

My childhood bike was held together with string and tape. But today, in London, I have the very latest carbon fibre road bike. It’s my pride and joy. I need a good one, as I’m a delivery guy. It can be quite dangerous cycling the streets of London and I really have to focus and keep clear of turning lorries. What’s nice is that there’s quite a community of us delivery riders. We are friends and really look out for each other. We’re also all bike mad!

My Mum and brother still live in Zimbabwe. I miss them both a lot and worry about them: especially as my brother’s been quite ill and can’t work. So I send money back to them both, as often as I can, using my World Remit app. It’s great I can send mobile money straight to their smartphones and they can use it whenever they need it. I’m planning a trip home next year – just need to save a bit more for the flight. I’m hoping my brother will be well enough for us to take a small bike ride together again. There’s no-one better to ride with.”
