Hosea Hashili is headed to the top!

“ I failed my Grade 12, but today I stand tall as a Cum Laude graduate,” Hosea Hashili.

Former 2016 SRC Vice-President, Hosea Hashili, graduated with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering ‘Cum Laude,’ at last month’s graduation ceremony. However, a few years ago, Hashili was not the exceptional performer he is today. He attended primary and high school in Grootfontein, where he received a number of accolades from Grade 8 to 10. However, in Grade 11 he gave in to peer pressure, and started drinking alcohol.

“I remember my math teacher caught me red-handed with a beer in town, a day before we wrote a math examination,” he said. This behaviour and attitude ultimately resulted in him failing Grade 12. Still very determined to succeed, he improved his Grade 12 results and later enrolled for the Introduction to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (InSTEM)  programme, formerly known as Introduction to Engineering Studies, offered at NUST.

“My thirst for success was at its peak since my peers from high school were already ahead of me. With this change of attitude, I managed to change my life around and be recognised as the best first, second and third year student in my course,” he said.
