“Being a travel consultant is not as easy as it may look because it requires a lot of skills in communication and an open mind, because without proper skills, one may find it hard to deal with clients on a daily basis.”

“With the education I got from Limkokwing University, I have become a more proactive person with innovation and creative ideas that can be better, not only in my life but also the lives of people I interact with on daily basis, both socially and professionally,” said Mahlatsi.


Mahlatsi mentioned that she chose to study at Limkokwing University because it is the only University in the country that had courses which catered for innovative young Basotho.

According to Mahlatsi, Limkokwing University was her only option because it caters for Basotho talent and trains students to think out of the box in solving problems and also trains them to apply creativity in everything they do.

Summing up her experience at the University, Mahlatsi expressed, “I am glad to have been a Limkokwing student because during my time there, I learned that it is only through prayer, passion and desire that one can achieve their dreams in life.”

She stated that being a Limkokwing student has taught her a lot about believing in what she wanted and dealing with problems as they came.

Mahlatsi said that the atmosphere in which she works in and the solid team serve as motivation. Being new on the job and knowing what she wanted to achieve, Mahlatsi had to learn what she was expected of her from people the who had experience in the job she was getting in to, hence she formed part of the team she found at SA Maseru Travel Agency.

“Working with the people in my team has taught me a lot in terms of professionalism and doing my job the best way possible. Team work has really taught me that just like there is a lot we can learn in school, there is also a lot we can learn from other people,” stated Mahlatsi.

In conclusion, the young Travel Consultant urged all students who are yet to join Limkokwing University to have no doubt in making the decision, and to believe that their dreams will come true if they stay focused.
