Brave Chibaka, a 14 year-old Malawian has enrolled at the University of Namibia, becoming the youngest student at the university.
The Malawian teen has already started attending classes, according to reports in Namibia.
Chibaka was born in Lilongwe in 2001 and turns 15 on March 3 this year.
He started school at the age of four and completed form 4 last year in June, just after turning 14.
“I wasn’t the smartest in class so there is nothing really special about me. However, I was the youngest in form 4 and I also won the award for Most Improved Learner,” Chibaka told the media.
Chibaka is studying engineering and he says he is following in the footsteps of his father.
“From standard 1, I would always tell my teacher that I wanted to finish my degree before the age of 20 and become a civil engineer. So I’m on the path of accomplishing my dreams,” said Chibaka.
Chibaka added that he does not feel intimidated by older students and he is not afraid of the workload. He says he is “ready to take on the challenge.”
