She enrolled in a six month bridging course in Environmental Education and Nature Conservation. She was one of the top achievers at the college. As part of her studies, Ezelia completed her two-month workplace experiential training with the National Parks and Wildlife office in Livingstone.
“I enjoyed the college life especially in the area of environmental education and awareness to the friends and the community at large. The college provides a real life experience and modern ways of managing the environment. It further brings a sense of responsibility that even human being must have towards nature. It’s a once life changing experience. Given the opportunity I would like to further my education experience in nature conservation”– Njobvu.
At a recent Children in the Wilderness annual camp at Tokaleya, Ezelia was a tent leader taking care of, and mentoring, young girls in environmental education. She also presented a topic on water conservation.
