The world through my eyes

About Gloria Mangi

Gloria Mangi was born in Dodoma, Tanzania though originally from the Kilimanjaro region where the family home is currently situated. Gloria was born to her Tanzanian dad, Dr. Silas A Mangi, a successful doctor, and her Tanzanian mother, Monyaichi Mangi, a nurse midwife.

She spent most her life living abroad in such places as, Northern Ireland, Saudi Arabia, and America, while her dad pursued his studies and career. Her mother, motivated by her poor background, would furnish Gloria and her older brother Alpha, her only other sibling at that time, with libraries of books, audio books and tapes, and sending them to the best schools. In one of these schools, the children were required to take a book with them home every day and read and write a summary of the book. Gloria recalls picking a book by C.S. Lewis, called “The Lion, The Witch, and The wardrobe” only because of its interesting title and cover, and went home to read it. It was there that her mind became opened to the opportunities that books provided, allowing her to travel through her mind to different parts of the world, some real and some fiction, and learn about new wonders she never knew existed, aided by her over active imagination, which to her, made for fascinating journeys.

Her love for literature grew over the years, but she could never settle down on what it is she wanted to do, though active in many areas of school from the student government to the school newspaper. It was when she was in university, thinking she was going to follow in the footsteps of her father, that her love of media was realized, in which she returned to her home country Tanzania, to pursue her dreams, and where she is currently residing.

Personal Message:

My dream is to leave my mark in history through my documentation of people’s lives, stories, places, etc through my journalistic activities. I want to inspire people to make a positive difference in their lives and others, and know that they can be who they want to be and more if they are not afraid of hard work!
