She completed her LLB honours degree at the University of Namibia (Unam) in 2017 and is currently enrolled at the Justice Training Centre for admission as a legal practitioner.

On 22 March, Kashuupulwa started work at the justice ministry.

She previously worked for a private company that focused on project management, fundraising and much more. She also drafted many agreements and letters for the company. Kashuupulwa says her experience there was overwhelming and exhilarating.

She acquired many skills from the people she worked with, such as efficiency, multitasking and working under pressure.

Kashuupulwa faces a lot of challenges in her workplace. Some of these challenges include time management and the pressure to urge to absorb and master everything timeously.

Planning a day before, while ensuring that she has made provision for any miscellaneous and team work, helps her tackle these challenges head-on. To maintain patience, Kashuupulwa reminds herself that ‘Rome was also not built in one day’.

Kashuupulwa’s plans for the master of the high court directorate are to ensure that she carries out the mandate and objectives of the ministry, as well as the directorate, accordingly.

She also hopes to make a positive impact. She hopes to achieve this through hard work, team work, work advancements and constantly improving herself.

When she is not in office, Kashuupulwa spends much of her free time either at the gym, basketball court or playing mini-tennis at the Windhoek Central Hospital.

She advices young people to stay in school, because knowledge is power. “Keep pushing and remember you are the key to your future,” she added.
