J2Ex Alumni Titus Mwahafa Winning Awards in Namibia
Titus Mwahafa was a young secondary school student in 2010 when he participated in a Journey to Excellence (J2Ex) “Take Charge of Your Life!” (TCYL) workshop in Windhoek, Namibia that was organized in conjunction with Junior Achievement (JA), an NGO that promotes entrepreneurship.
Now a university student, he recently won top honors in two separate entrepreneurship competitions: the Namibian Business Hall of Fame honored him as “Social Entrepreneur of 2015”, and he was named “Middleweight Champion in Namibia” for his business pitch at the Global Entrepreneurship Week’s “Get in the Ring” competition.
Titus has managed to unite his two big passions: basketball and business, in a program that helps young Namibians learn more about both. His Technical Basketball Academy focuses on “growing young people to be entrepreneurs while practicing sports”.
We’re thrilled because he credits J2Ex , next to JA, as one of the programs that gave him the skills he needed to excel.
