Maud Chifamba, middle, started her studies in accounting September 10, 2012 at the University of Zimbabwe. Aged 14, she is the country's youngest ever university student.

Now pursuing a Bachelor of Accountancy Honors Degree at the University of Zimbabwe, the country’s oldest and most esteemed educational institution, her intellectual prowess and hard work have earned her a four-year scholarship of nearly $10,000 after she excelled at 2011 Advanced Level exams.

She has been granted a four-year scholarship from the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA), valued at nearly $10,000

“My dream job is to become an accountant,” Maud says.

Maud shakes hands with Gershem Pasi, commissioner general of ZIMRA. "At 14, she has achieved a rare feat which some grown-ups have struggled to even initiate," said Pasi as he announced Maud's sponsorship package in late May, 2012
