Brief: Best Honours Student (2015)

You recently received the best Honours student award for the Bachelor Logistics. How do you feel about this achievement? I feel honoured and motivated to build on this achievement and use this proud moment as a building block to achieve greater things in future.

What is your learning style and how would you encourage others? Reading widely can perfect your understanding especially reading a wide range of journals that are related to your course. Keep yourself updated on the latest in the area that you are studying, journals is the way to go. Students should visit the library more often, and also make use of the, electronic journal through Emerald and others.

What inspired you to study Logistics, and why did you choose to study at NUST? A few years ago while as I was cross-covering for a colleague who on leave in the logistics sector of my former employer, I found myself doing customs clearance, booking cargo in vessels, liaising with transporters both rail and road and all the related issues. I fell head over heels with it, I registered for a diploma with the Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and graduated in 2010. In 2013 in enrolled for the bachelor of Logistics and Supply Chain Management. I chose to study with NUST because of ethics, values and its ever growing reputation of being the centre of logistics excellence in Southern African. Despite being a polytechnic by then it had proved to be the best in terms of the way the materials is delivered to students, its ability to attract international professors and its close relationship with the Namibia German Institute of Logistics and above all its emphasis on research.

What are your plans for the near future?I cannot wait to enroll for the Master’s degree in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, then the PhD and then I will join the academia.

Success quote! "Do not distance yourself from your studies even if you are a distant student".
