“My work environment can be stressful at times, so I prefer being in a relaxing place like the gym and watching movies. Those are my two favourite activities.”
The main challenge for Nangolo is working with people from different backgrounds, as each person interacts in terms of how they were raised, which can cause misunderstandings.
“I have learnt to accept people’s traits without trying to change them. I also do not take anything personally; it’s all about work. It’s these kinds of challenges that mould our characters,” he said.
Nangolo says he overcomes his challenges by maintaining a positive mindset and trying his best at all times. He says he does not allow situations or individuals around him to dictate who he is.
