Elijah Madzikatire

Elijah Madzikatire is an Honors student from Harare, Zimbabwe. A soccer player for the LCU Men’s Soccer Team, Madzikatire first heard about LCU from a former teammate from England, who was considering LCU. Ultimately, it was the interest shown by the soccer coaches and the intimate atmosphere of LCU that tipped the scale. “I felt like [LCU] was where I needed to grow up at.”

Majoring in Digital Media Arts, his favorite classes have been Physics and College Algebra because of all the math involved.

After graduation, Madzikatire is considering either a career in technological design development or as a professional soccer player.

He’s driven by his dreams, but it’s not all about soccer for this athlete; in addition to playing soccer in his free time, Madzikatire enjoys the things other college students do: hanging out and listening to music. Texas is a long way from Zimbabwe. About his background, Madzikatire says: “I'm just different, being an African in America just makes you a bit unique, in a good way.”
