Hello Stella, please introduce yourself.

Hello, my name is Umukoro Stella. It’s my pleasure to be here.

How did you hear about the Aba Mastering Footwear Program?

I got to know about the program through The Academy’s social media platform on Facebook.

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

I have been following The Footwear Academy for the past 3 years but don’t have the money to pay for the training.

My heart was filled with joy when I saw the training ad on Facebook, I took advantage of the opportunity without a second thought.

It was indeed a dream come true for me.

And how will you sum up your experience during the training?

It was heaven on Earth. Seeing shoemaking from another perspective.

The training was educative, interactive and full of fun. I learnt so many shoemaking ideas and soft skills that would help me in building my brand.

The opportunity to meet and share ideas with other young like minds made it worth while.

Interesting, what’s next for you?

Well, I have plans of maximizing all I have learnt and establishing my brand, “Riritan” in a standard way.

I have so much passion in shoemaking and I would love to see it translate into something big.

So what advice do you have for young people?

As a young person, whatever you make up your mind to do, do it well, building excellence is key.
