Helping people makes her happy
“Uejaa said that in 2007 she was horrible in reading news, and her boss would tell her how people would call to ask her, why she would not take her off the air. But she kept at it and gained the confidence.” “I love the mystery behind radio and how people get attached to the voice, therefore radio to me represents a friend who is faceless but speaks to me like we have been friends forever.”
She is also currently studying for her bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Communication Technology at the Polytechnic of Namibia. “Journalism is a profession which is so powerful yet so underrated at the same time.
The course has surely improved my communication skills, made me a better writer, a better speaker and very importantly, opened up my mind to so many things,” said Uejaa adding that once she has completed her journalism degree, it is on to the next one, which will be in Project Management “because I love managing projects and seeing them through.”
She emphasised that her family is very important to her because they are her number one motivators and she loves knowing that she is able to take care of them. Knowing that they are happy also makes her very happy.
“I am inspired by a lot of things and knowing that I am not where I used to be, and I have been presented with so many great opportunities. I feel inspired to better myself and give back,” she added. Uejaa advised that “people should get educated and gain the knowledge both bookwise and streetwise and make it work for you and learn to share.” “If you want to prove anyone that said you will not make it, wrong , kill them with massive success and let your work speak for itself and never let the hype get to your head,” she said giving her mischievous smile.
She concluded by saying that people motivate her and she loves helping others and making people happy. “It brings satisfaction to see the smile on someone’s face after you have just helped them in some way.”
