Tatenda Shumba

Business Administration, '18

Tatenda ShumbaFriendly faces and a natural landscape brought Business Administration major Tatenda Shumba a long way from home. Originally from Zimbabwe, Shumba quickly connected with people on campus who have made his Castleton experience a memorable one.

“Castleton has helped me shape my future goals by giving me the perspective of making the world a better place and helping the people in need,” said Shumba of his educational journey. “I chose the Business major because I thought it was fitting with my personality. Eventually, I want to start businesses in Zimbabwe to help the people.” 

A member of the Men’s Soccer team, he is headed into his senior year as a forward on the field.

“Coach John O'Connor has helped me grow as a person and as a player,” he said, “When I have a difficult time, he is always there to help me. His trust and commitment is very helpful.”
