Hello Benjamin, please introduce yourself.

Hi, My name is Udeh Benjamin Chinonye.

How did you hear about the Aba Mastering Footwear Program?

A friend of mine, Chidi Ejeagba, referred me to the program.

What motivated you to sign up for the Aba Mastering Footwear Program?

I needed multiple source of income and I chose shoemaking as one of it. I couldn’t let the opportunity slip away, so I signed up.

How will you sum up your experience during the training?

My experience was educative and fun all the way.

I learnt so many new things about shoemaking which I didn’t have previous idea about them.

The learning process was top notch and I’m glad I was part of the training.

I made these footwears after my training and I would say I’m glad I chose to train at The Footwear Academy.

Interesting, what’s next for you?

I’m currently building a company that majors on handmade footwear production.

Legacy Footwears is my brand name and I am gradually growing the brand.

I believe with time, we will grow internationally.

So what advice do you have for young people?

I just have a word for them which is, if it starts with a vision, you’ll reach the destination, so never give up on your dreams.
