About Munya Munyati

Munya is a writer / photographer for Global Citizen. Born in New York, he grew up in Zimbabwe before completing high school at Li Po Chun United World College in Hong Kong. Instead of heading off to New York for college, he exchanged the city for the Amazonian city of Ecuador where he is currently on a bridge year with Global Citizen Year. Having lived on 4 different continents, Munya looks to acquire as much knowledge and as many perspectives from the world which he hopes to apply to his life.

Why Munya Munyati is a Global Citizen

I am a global citizen because I believe that human rights and equality should not be a luxury of those who can afford to be heard, and the environment is ours to preserve not destroy.
