‘I will be an accountant’

YOUNG & AMBITIOUS with ELIZABETH LWENJE
Lusaka
AT the age of 16 and in Grade 12 at Matero Boys Secondary School, Thomas Mwale dreams of becoming an accountant. He says by becoming an accountant, he will contribute to the country’s economic development.
‘‘Various career choices coincide with the accountant career path. Though the rate of accountant graduate seems to increase year after year, job opportunities are also increasing since many people are venturing to businesses which requires accountants to deal with the financial analyses
“Each and every sector starting with the individual enterprises, the public, and private cannot be successful without the accountants,’’ he said.
The last in a family of three, Thomas draws inspiration from his father and brother who are also accountants. He works hard at school so that he can become even more successful than his father.
“My father and brother are my inspiration, I put in my best efforts at school so that I can achieve my goals and become even more successful than my father,” he said.
His favourite subjects at school are Accounts, Mathematics, English and Commerce. He enjoys eating Portuguese and Arabic food. Thomas enjoys playing and watching soccer, Manchester United being his favourite team in the English Premier League.
Thomas has encouraged other pupils out there to always stay focused and work hard in everything they do in order to achieve their goals.
“My encouragement to fellow pupils is that they should live a simple life, stay focused and do what they are good at because it later on helps to achieve what they want in life,” he said.
