Remaining powerful through education

Having graduated cum laude last year, Hosea Hashili has secured a job in his dream career and still remains steadfast in adding value to his name, now enrolled for an MBA programme.

With a key interest in space science and the history of science, watching videos on these topics is Hosea Hashili’s favourite pastime.

Hasili was born in a village called Epalala and bred in Grootfontein. He enjoys having intellectual conversations and socialising.

An engineer by profession after graduating at the Namibia University of Science and Technology, he is now enrolled in a master’s of business administration management strategy programme.

With more research and development happening every second, Hashili said the lifespan of knowledge is diminishing at the speed of light and the need to keep up is vital.

“In the world of modern business, the need for fast and sharp business decision-making is becoming paramount to business efficacy,” Hashili, who decided to enrol for the business programme after he realised the gap between technical fields and management, which, according to him, hinders smooth consensual decisions in organisations.

Growing passion

Hashili admitted that at first, he didn’t know what he was getting himself into, “but as the years went by, the passion grew and now I am loving it here.”

He is a civil engineering technician at the Namibia Water Corporation, but he believes that a background and understanding of business is vital for any business and its employees, due to “the need for diverse and cross-functional know-how leaders”.

“This being the case, being diverse in content and dynamically flexible is pivotal to compatibility in today’s world.”

Hashili said he believes the youth should keep up to date with the latest knowledge and be at the forefront of embracing new ways of doing things.

He advised young people to attain diverse skills that would ultimately make them dynamically resilient.

Hard work

“Hard work gets you there, but persistence keeps you there.” These are the wise words Hashili keeps at the back of his mind since a friend told him that in his first year of university.

“Civil engineering, especially the water sector I am privileged to serve in, is one of the few fields doing work that has a direct impact on people’s lives.”

He takes pride in being part of a team that provides a vital commodity and a basic need for members of any community, he added.

He further shared that some of his career highlights include water infrastructure completed by him, which assists in providing water to the Namibian nation.
