Edna's work experience comments:
My work experience week was very tiresome but also very exciting at the same time. I worked at the Ministry of Finance in the office of the Treasury department with the budge ant financial accountability adviser, who is also my mentor, Mrs Kay Blackburn.
The people I worked with during my week at the Ministry of Finance dealt much with economics and I learnt how the national planning is done and present in our country, Zambia. I am happy to say that I learnt a lot from my mentor who is my employer at the Ministry of Finance. I was taught how to use many things. Things like photocopiers, printers and computers and every day I used these equipments when doing my work experience. I was also given breaks to do whatever I wanted to do on the computers and it was this time that I took advantage of the computer and researched on my History topics from school. I also made a yahoo account so that I can get in touch with my friends and my sponsors. I was happy to receive an email from Miss Elisabeth Denniston.
I really learnt a lot from my work experience week and I thank the people I worked with for their kindness, hospitality and support that they showed me at the Ministry of Finance. I would like to go back and do the real principles of accounts at the Ministry if I will be given another educating opportunity like this. I would also like to see and work with Miss Chilufya, my employers assistant who was always with me and I was very free to ask Chilufya where I was not clear during my work experience week.
I met people who inspired me with the way they did their work and some of them talked to me about their lives and what brought them to the Ministry of Finance. Talking to people who are not my age made me feel matured and encouraged me to do what others did at the Ministry in terms of working and courtesy.
I really learnt a lot and thank you Kucetekela Foundation for grating me this memorable opportunity to take part in the working environment and experience different things before I complete my secondary school.
Thank you very much Kucetekela Foundation.
