Name: Tomas Thembinkosi Rodriguez Perez
FAB thing about your name: It’s a mixture of Spain and Zimbabwe, my parents are of Spanish origin, but as me and my sisters were born in Zim,
we each got given a Zimbabwean middle-name. This keeps our connection to Zimbabwe even stronger.

FAB thing about your country of origin: The people – friendly, caring, and determined to do the best we can no matter what the situation – Zimbabweans really have a unique spirit.
Country of residence: England
Occupation: I work for an African NGO based in London
What makes you FAB? My origins and upbringing – Zimbabwe is a huge part of who I am today, and no matter how long I am away from Zim, I will always carry that spirit and those values with me, everywhere I go. That’s FAB!
