A passion to unlock potential

Justina Mulokoshi is a chartered accountant (CA) at PwC who has big dreams and is constantly on the lookout for new ways to improve her skills.

Mulokoshi grew up in Windhoek. She matriculated from Windhoek High School in 2011 and went on to complete her honours degree in accounting at the University of Pretoria.

She recently passed her second qualifying exam and completed her three-year articles at PwC, which qualified her as a chartered accountant.

Mulokoshi’s job entails a critical examination of financial statements in order to provide reasonable assurance to the users of these statements.

This means providing comfort to those not involved in management, such as investors, banking institutions and the public that the financial information is sensibly correct. She is also tasked with working with people and maintaining good relationships.

“My greatest accomplishment is my recent qualification as a CA. The road to being a CA is not easy and it's filled with many challenges, including passing exams,” Mulokoshi said.

She added the greatest challenge for her was keeping a positive attitude and healthy mindset, no matter the situation she was faced with.

A typical day in the office begins with her reviewing emails and organising her day, according to priorities that are based on her clients’ deadlines.

She mostly works from her clients’ premises and after communicating with them to obtain any additional information she needs, and consulting her managers about any concerns, she performs audit procedures.

She also communicates with her team and ensures that everyone knows what is expected of them. She provides coaching where required to ensure that the work is performed efficiently.

Mulokoshi describes herself as very analytical, as she pays close attention to detail.

“This is an excellent quality and skill to have as an auditor,” she added.

She also prides herself on being able to maintain her composure during stressful situations. She said she works well under pressure.

She is very family-orientated and believes they play a big role in motivating and providing her with structure.

In addition, her self-motivation and inspiration comes from the love of learning new things and the determination to be better today than she was yesterday.

Mulokoshi advises young people to be team players, chase their dreams, have confidence and always do the best they can. She is a good example that dreams are attainable - all you have to do is believe and have confidence in yourself.

Mulokoshi is currently focused on developing her soft skills and perfecting her management and communication skills, as she considers these vital in terms of becoming a professional leader in the near future.
