Hey guys, Happy New Week to you all.
Welcome to a new edition of the “Alumni of the week” series.
Here is a link to the previous edition if you missed it.
Featuring in this edition is, Eunice Nwokocha, one of our batch B student of the Aba Mastering Footwear Program.
Eunice is an inspiring and courageous lady that can’t be stopped by nothing.
Despite being visually impaired, she gives her footwear startup everything needed to scale.
We celebrate her today and always for believing in her dreams and shining her light to the world.
Let’s hear her story as she shares her experience at The Footwear Academy.
Hello Eunice, please introduce yourself.
My name is Eunice Uchechi Nwokocha. I feel really honoured to be here.
How did you hear about the Aba Mastering Footwear Program?
I heard about the Aba Mastering Footwear Program through a friend who also taught me some basics of footwear making.
What really motivated you to sign up for the Aba Mastering Footwear Program?
I would say the drive for progress and improvement in footwear making.
And how will you sum up your experience during the training?
I can say for sure, that I gained alot from the training, not just about footwear but also other skills required for growth in business.
The Footwear Academy created an enabling environment for proper learning, and development of skills.
Also, the teachers were exceptional in trying to carry everyone along, especially me because I’m visually impaired. It is an experience I cannot forget.
Also, meeting other colleagues who also came for the training was another chance of networking. I am grateful to Mr Bentley Chukwuemeka, Mrs Chidinma Chukwuemeka, and the entire TFA crew, Wisdom, Ben, Shedrack, Chioma and Ugochi.
Interesting, what’s next for you?
I am progressively building my business to it’s optimal level.
So what advice do you have for young people?
Learn a skill, improve on it and make exploits. You can do it, just start somewhere.
Could you drop your contact information
Sure. My phone number is 08061261006.
It was nice having you at The Academy Eunice. We wish you all the best as you make exploits.
