Hi Marvelous, please introduce yourself.

Hello, my name is Ndukwe Marvelous Orji.

How did you hear about The Aba Mastering Footwear Program?

I got to know about the program through a friend.

What motivated you to sign up for the Program?

I have always been a lover of leather works. My passion and zeal for shoe making prompted me to sign up for the program.

Tell us your experience during the training.

It is an experience I won’t forget. My love for leather work came to reality just by one encounter with The Footwear Academy.

I never believed I would make good, quality and durable shoes that can stand a chance of competing with International footwear brands.


At first, the journey was blurry, but as we continued pushing, I started seeing a dream come true.

Thank God for my kind of teachers, @The Bentley’s, I can’t just comprehend the kind of heart they have in rendering selfless services.

The Footwear Academy is a blessing to the footwear industry.

Interesting, so what’s next for you?

I intend coming back to The Footwear Academy for an internship program before establishing.

Nice, kindly drop your contact information.

Ok. My phone number is 08161631570

What advice do you have for young people?

I advice young people to go for Enterpreneur. They should pray to get people like they Bentley’s,as their teachers or better still enroll with The Footwear Academy to get the best knowledge they would need to succeed in business.

Thank you Marvelous for acknowledging our effort. We appreciate. We wish you success in your journey ahead.
