Aug 2006 - Present

Founder and President

PRACTIKAL

Following my inert desire and passion for acting i founded a Practikal creativity organisation known as PRACTIKAL , short for Professional Acting Interest Knowledge And Learning with the aim of launching a career in acting.However i later had to marry the student development part and the business side of the organisation and the emerging organisation was a student welfare organisation in ints pre-egistration stage as a registrered trust. The main thrust for the organisation is to allow the intake and exchange of information to take place by bridging the gap between theory and practice,hence our theme Turning knowledge into action , this ensures that members learn by doing,(PRACTIKAL) , and learn by teaching through presentation skills , group facilitation and peer to peer coaching.

Student Representative Council

Midlands State University

I was democratically elected as the Entertainment Chairperson in the Student Representative Council at Midlands State University and i was responsible for organising events, coordination of events and formulating events strategies as well as organising Event management workshops for the students and the captains of industry.This was more of a Middle management position where i had to balance between the interests of Students one hand and staff on the other hand. This provided a number of opportunities for me as it equipped me through various leadership development opportunities.
