I would like to take this opportunity to write and express my sincere gratitude for enabling me to study civil engineering at the oldest University in Zambia.
My name is Daniel, I am a Zambian citizen and 20 years of age. Currently I am a student at the University of Zambia, I am a first-year student in the School of Natural Sciences (B.SC.NQS) at the University of Zambia (UNZA) where I am currently pursuing a five-year Bachelor in Civil Engineering. I love Mathematics and Physics; Civil Engineering combines this, but most importantly it contributes to my goal of helping the development of my community.
Living in a Mining town, seeing little effort being made to develop proper infrastructure and instate good planning, bothered me ever since I was young and experiencing local houses falling due to rains and disruption of water or electricity because of road construction or rehabilitation is a common thing in our community.
Whilst in school I thus developed an interest and strong desire to acquire the relevant knowledge and comprehensive view of how design meets structures. My ambition is to change and make a difference in my community and the country at large to improve the everyday lives of people through good design and planning. As a Civil Engineer I want to be there on each stage.
My education is largely focused on this mindset: Cause for improvement of better infrastructure and a chance to modernize.I love being creative and believe that civil engineering is the perfect course/career for me to combine creativity and natural science.
With this opportunity which has Zikomo has offered me, it will able me to achieve my goals and able to study extra hard.
I thank Zikomo for everything and this opportunity which you have granted me.
