In 2018 Alisha graduated from Durban University of Technology, with a Diploma in Management Science: Marketing. Whilst studying she was placed at NMI DSM Mercedes for 3 months as part of an internship, where she was an assistant to the service advisors. This involved a variety of tasks including book-ins, breakdowns and assisting in the filling of T&C’s for customers.
Alisha then decided to further study for a year whilst working at Durban University of Technology, where her role was Assistant WIL Co-Ordinator for the Retail Department. Her job allowed her to work mostly with industry members and students; Alisha’s core function was to help the students get work placements and exposure in the industry. She was also given the opportunity to guest lecture to the students. The best moment from working in the Retail Department was when one of the industry members was able to grant 11 of her students a fully paid bursary. At the end of 2019 she completed her B-Tech in Management Science: Marketing.
Outside of Alisha’s career path, one of the biggest highlights has been hiking to the top of Table Mountain with her family and placing rocks on the pile where others had done the same. She was able to conquer her fear of heights which helped changed her outlook on fear and how she handles it. The view was amazing and the memory will last forever! Alisha also loves charity work, having done outreaches with both the church and independently. People and communication are her passions, and her role model is motivational speaker Jay Shetty.Back to meet your MMR team
