Liberty Kudakwashe Chakavarika

Liberty Kudakwashe Chakavarika is a budding entrepreneur aged 22 born in the city of Harare and raised in Bulawayo Zimbabwe.
This upcoming flame has particular interest in fashion designing.
Something that came about when he was in the 5th grade after he stumbled upon a show on television by Valentino where the designer was showcasing his dresses on the runway in Milan
After this experience he never looked  back and saw light that led him to establish a street wear brand.

As the co-founder of urban kings clothing supply which is a street wear brand that has an assortment of products ranging from caps to t-shirts and backpacks,this individual has been working around the clock to make it work.
Liberty says "starting this has never been really easy, i have failed many times that i grew to accept it as part of the growth process,the need to start my own company was born from my strong need to eradicate the dependency syndrome that has trickled down its way into most youths lifes."
He found a good business partner in his close friend who apparently shares the same vision.
These two young man realized their artistic nature and need a platform to expose to the world and inspire others in the process.

Everything from sewing to graphic designing has been self taught.If you really put your mind to anything you can always achieve greatness.
Liberty is a goal getter and has hope and vision to see his company grow to a point where vast job opportunities for the youth will be created.
He is concerned because most graduates are unemployed due to the poor economical climate and it has become a daunting task for them to get decent jobs.
He says for one to be successful one has to change the way they think because as James Allen said "as a man thinketh so he shall become."

An avid reader of self help and development books he gathers information from these books and this has helped him overcome his known fear of public speaking.
His Entrepreneur skills were however chiseled the time he worked for Khanya Development Trust which is an organisation that focuses on teaching people about entrepreneurship and therefor equipping youth with business management skills.
