Forester Nakikus gets a degree
NAKIKUS Gwaso’s dream of becoming a forester began in 2018.
After completing secondary school at Grace Memorial, he joined the forestry department in Bulolo, Morobe.
He had a child Delainea at university and promised himself not to fail her.
He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Forestry degree at the University of Technology.
“Dad was a librarian at Unitech’s forestry campus in Bulolo where I grew up with my two sisters. I used to see students from all over the country coming to study there. So I decided to be a forester too.”
“Forestry is a part of me. In my childhood days we used to play around in the campus. We follow forestry students into the bush. It was my life.”
He dedicates the degree to his parents who had supported him in his education.
He thought they would miss his graduation when they had to fly to Port Moresby for his father to have an eye operation.’
But fortunately they made it back in time to watch him receive his degree.
“Mum was taking dad to Pom for the eye operation. I was sad because I would graduate without them. But I was thankful that they flew in the day before my graduation.”
Nakikus is currently working with the Lae Builders Company.
