:: A Rising Star: Monica Kalichini


Monica is 29 years old, and obtained her Bachelors in Mineral Science from the University of Zambia (UNZA) in 2010 and her Masters in Engineering (Chemical Engineering) from the University of Cape Town in 2015. She says that when she started her undergraduate studies at UNZA, she had no clue what mineral processing was. "I just knew I was going to start my first year in Natural Sciences and find my way to chemistry (my favourite science)". In her second semester, the School of Natural Science arranged for all the science based faculties to give a talk to the first year students on why they should pick a career in the disciplines they taught. "Thatís when I first encountered the one person that has inspired me the most academically and professionally- Professor Stephen Simukanga. He talked about mining in general and focused on metallurgy and a fire just ignited in me. I knew exactly how and where I wanted to apply myself- in mineral processing. I have not looked back since".
