Samuel Masingi dreams of a shared vision
2014-10-31

Newly-appointed Student Representative Counsel (SRC) member, Samuel Masingi, holds high aspirations for his 2014/2015 term. He has been elected to the portfolio of Ex officio: Student Media Council. Masingi aims to bring the media and students closer together.

“If the media platforms are solid,” Masingi says, “then everything else will just fall into place, causing a snowball effect. I think this is very critical, because even if you do great things, there is no point if no one knows about it.”

A believer in an open door policy, Masingi encourages students to visit him to share their ideas and opinions.

Masingi credits ambition and hard work for his achievements and the success in his academic career. He believes that confidence and willpower can convert ambition into accomplishment – transforming dreams into reality. Studying for his honours in Sport Sciences, Masingi believes in stepping up to the task at hand and making an impact. Be an agent of change in order to see the difference you desire.

Having formerly served on the Tswelopele Residence Committee for Sport, Masingi is not new to the media scene. He previously gained experience as the Sports Editor of the IRAWA Post. He currently contributes to various publications which include Student Leverage – an online magazine – and News24 Voices. This makes him highly -suitable to head the student media portfolio.

When asked about his hopes for the 2014/2015 Student Representative Council he replied, “A shared vision.”
