Welcome to the eleventh edition of The Alumni of the Week series.
As always, here is the link to the previous edition, if you missed it.
This week’s feature goes to Okorie Chima Ndukwe, one of our Batch A student of The Aba Mastering Footwear Program.
Chima is an amazing fashion designer, CEO Virtuelin Wears. He had a vision of combining his clothing line with Footwear production.
The Aba Mastering Footwear Program was just the right step to realizing his dreams.
Let’s hear his experience at The Footwear Academy.
Hello Chima, please introduce yourself.
Hello, my name is Okorie Chima Ndukwe.
How did you hear about The Aba Mastering Footwear Program?
I heard about the program through a friend.
What motivated you to sign up for The Aba Mastering Footwear Program?
I wanted to go into marketing footwears in combination with my Men’s clothing line. So the program was a step to achieving that.
Tell us your experience during the training.
It was an impactful training. I was surprised at what I could achieve in such a small time.
I was really happy at how much I had learnt and the skill I acquired.
You can see someone is rocking my decollete shoe already.
That’s awesome, so what’s next for you?
Well, I hope to find a work space where I could perfect my skills.
I hope to get into the market full time with my brand.
Do drop your contact information also.
Sure. I can be reached with the phone number 07062993877.
What advice do you have for young people?
Having a skill is very important and shoe making is really intriguing. Find your niche.
Quite interesting. Thank you Chima for your time. We wish you all the best in your journey ahead.
