Audit Assistant at Deloitte Namibia
My time at Brookside helped not only to grow as a person but also and most of all spiritually. It taught me how to work well and also dedicate time to God. I made lifelong friendships that have had a tremendous impact on my life.
Living in Brookside was a lifetime experience I will always treasure. Brookside enabled me to have a balanced varsity lifestyle. One gets to live with people from across the globe and encounter different cultures. Staying at Brookside was one of my best decisions I made in my early 20's and I'd choose it again if I were to go back in time.

The best thing about being a Brookside resident for me was the family life. Retreating from the world to just be present in the lives of those you share a certain camaraderie with. These are some of the many life lessons which I learned through the actions and presence of all the brothers at the house. Brookside literally taught me life lessons that I never knew I needed until I became a family man and realised I was being prepared for this. It truly is a place to learn from various individuals that have unique experiences, it is like learning from all the breadths of human experience.
