FOUNDER OF SHUMBA BOUTIQUE
I’m Yeukai, and I originally came to the UK from Zimbabwe when I was 18 years old, after my life was endangered as a result of speaking out against the government there. I faced a long fight to receive refugee status, and during this time I decided I wanted to help other young people in the future.
I am now the founder & director of Active Horizons, an award-winning organisation supporting young people living in London through mentoring, leadership skills development and entrepreneurship programmes. I also run my fashion business, Shumba Boutique.
Shumba Boutique sells unique, one of a kind womenswear, menswear and accessories inspired by African culture. Each piece is carefully chosen by our team to ensure that you stand out in the urban jungle.
