Kick4Life hosts career guidance day
Kick4Life hosted a career guidance session on Thursday for participants in the local community.
The day was graced with the presence of professionals in different academic fields, sharing their academic and career experiences with the young players.
Ret’sepile Motiki, a Super League player and a degree holder from the National University of Lesotho (NUL), who graduated while still playing football, motivated and shared how she managed to balance her academics and football: “There ought to be the balance between school and football, when it is time for school, focus on that, when it is time for football, go and give it your best shot”.
Another guest who shared her childhood background to the participants was Mrs Bernice Khabele, currently working at a successful local company in Lesotho. Growing up, she had to overcome a lot of challenges to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Administration and Sociology from NUL.
The players were afforded a chance to ask questions and present their skills to the panel. Kick4Life's Head of Education and Operations, Limpho Phokojoe said her department created this platform to provide players with career options after completing high school level: “We want these players to be exposed to wide options of what they can indulge into after high school, so that they can make informed decisions. They are brilliant young people with potentials to succeed in life, and as Kick4Life, we would be proud to see them prosper.”
