Kundai Gomwe is a 2nd year pharmacy student from University of Manchester.
Although still studying for her degree, Kundai already makes a huge difference to people’s lives, driven by her love for science and helping others.
Currently, taking part in eight weeks' research placement funded by the Wellcome Trust, Kundai is researching seven commonly prescribed drugs in the treatment of UTIs, highlighting the ever- rising threat of antibiotic resistance.
And if studying pharmacy and trying to save the world from superbugs was not enough, every Sunday she volunteers at a hostel for homeless and refugee families. Kundai helps everyone with their homework, from toddlers to secondary school age, as well as language skills and play, creating a space for them to just be kids. She describes this as a highlight of her university experience, cementing her desire to care for others.
Kundai is a pharmacy student...and she is incredibly dedicated, compassionate and caring.
