“Goal setting is the secret to a compelling future – Tony Robbins.
Hey guys, welcome to another edition of the “Alumni of the Week” series.
We tell our Alumni stories to inspire the young people out there to do more and never quit.
Do click on the link below to view the previous edition if you missed it.
Featuring in this edition is an ambitious Lady, Oseni Dorcas Dupe, one of our Batch B student of The Aba Mastering Footwear Program.
Fun Fact about Dupe,
Dupe wanted to do something different from her usual. She signed up for the Aba Mastering Footwear training with no previous knowledge of shoemaking.
She was amazed at what she could achieve within a short period of time.
Let’s hear from her, as she shares her experience at The Academy.
Hello Dupe, Please introduce yourself.
Hello, my name is Oseni Dorcas Dupe.
How did you hear about The Aba Mastering Footwear Program?
I got to know about the program via LinkedIn.
What motivated you to sign up for the Program?
I would say my interest in footwear making and also the Academy’s tagline that says “Equipping youths to produce export standard footwear”. It made me think of footwear making in another perspective.
I also made my research about The Academy on their website and social media handles and knew that there was something different about this particular Academy.
Tell us your experience during the training.
My experience at The Footwear Academy was all round educative.
I didn’t believe I could achieve so much within that short period. The experience trained my mindset on being disciplined and focused on life goals.
It was a great opportunity to be trained by Enterpreneurs that have been exposed to the rigour and vigour of Enterpreneurship and still came out great.
The soft skills, hard skills, the knowledge gained was all so encompassing.
Interesting, so what’s next for you?
Definitely making more and more footwear.
I look forward to building a global business that will impact the world.
And I hope to achieve that with my brand “Calvariae Crafts”.
What advice do you have for young people?
The best time to plant a tree was 20years ago, the next best time is now.
Whatever you need to do to improve or equip yourself, start now.
