My name is Khadija Sungeni Mussa, a proud 22 year old Malawian from the bustling city of Mangochi, home to the most beautiful beaches and attraction sites of Lake Malawi. Born in Zimbabwe, the home of my grandmother, I have had the privilege of learning and being raised in both countries. I’ve been at Rhodes since 2009. During my time here I have co-founded the Rhodes Malawi Society with a friend from high school upon our arrival at Rhodes, obtained my Bachelor of Social Science Degree (2011) with majors in Sociology and Political & International Studies as well as my Bachelor of Social Science (Interdisciplinary Honours) (2012) in Development Studies.
I’m currently in my final year of a Master of Social Science degree in Development Studies and also work in the department as a Teaching Assistant. My research interest is the role of international NGOs as agents of development and the effectiveness of their contribution to poverty alleviation in Malawi. My future plan is to have a career in the development arena, following in the footsteps of my father. I hope to work for organizations such as the United Nations or government development agencies such as the British Government’s Department for International Development (DFID).
