Being African means laughing out loud to Tapuwa Mhere. It also means "a sense of community and values." She also says that incompetence and being patronised are the two things she hates the most. It's little wonder then that the 26-year-old honestly describes herself as "very opinionated". She knows what she likes and isn't afraid to speak her mind. She works out and is set on emulating the tough look that Jennifer Garner sports on Alias. A TV, movie and music buff, Tapuwa's musical tastes are diverse ranging from 50 Cent to Kylie Minogue. Her favourite food is peanuts and she loves to listen to talk radio. Tapuwa would like her Big Brother Africa role to be "positive, enriching, restful, exciting and life-changing" but she is worried that she'll take up smoking again if put under an unusual amount of stress.
