I was born on the 8th of July 1992. Raised in Onelago Village, Oshana Region by my grandmother, I attended Elago Combined School until Grade 10, and after failing, I almost lost all hope.
In 2012, I completed an Electrical Installation and Basic Repair at Kayec Ondangwa. Even though I had attained my certificate, it wasn't any easier trying to get a job.In February 2013, I moved to Windhoek in an attempt to increase my chances of finding a job but at first, my attempts were in vain.
I was advised to apply for a job at Namibian Protective Services (NPS) as I continue my search for a job in the electrical field. Finally, in September 2013, I received an opportunity to prove myself at Orujaveze Solar CC as a Installer/Technician. Thanks to the training I received at KAYEC, it wasn't a hard adjustment and, with the help of my seniors, I thrived and gained experience in more than just Solar Electricity Installations. I also learnt the basics on how to install Solar Geysers and other electrical appliances.
My Employer and Mentor, Wapale Kalla, urged me to apply for a spot at Young Africa to further my education and up my qualifications, which is by far the best move I've made in my life. With my new found knowledge, I have been promoted from a technician to a Systems designer and now I oversee all the jobs being done and assist the newcomers in the company by teaching them new techniques.
Thanks to Young Africa, the Future looks brighter than ever.
