Young journalist Justicia Shipena has been devotedly developing articles and investigating issues since she was 16 years old—nearly six years. In the same way that a book’s author can have an effect on the reader, Justicia, who lives in Windhoek, Namibia’s „City of Lights,“ believes that the same concept can be used to bring about beneficial social change. She also believes that women ought to have an opportunity to influence the transition to clean energy in order to bring about this change. She received recognition in 2022 from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Namibia’s Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS) for her greatest articles that increased public understanding of the COVID-19 vaccination.
In addition to her work in journalism, Justicia is also participating in the US-Africa Green Leaders Academy fellowship, which focuses on wildlife conservation and climate change. She is committed to her profession and is constantly looking for new challenges to learn and develop as a journalist as she advances in her career.
