Hi Isaac, please introduce yourself.
Hello, my name is Nzekwe Obaluchi Isaac.
How did you hear about The Footwear Academy?
I got to know about The Academy through my online search for a school that trains shoe makers.
What motivated you to sign up for our 8 weeks private training course?
My passion for self independency and productivity motivated me to sign up for the private training.
How would you sum up your training experience at The Footwear Academy.
It was an awesome experience. I was really amazed with what I saw.
I got to know about different types of footwears that I had no idea of their names, just like the Monkstrap, Derby and so on.
The Footwear Academy really did Justice in breaking down the basics of footwear production.
In just 8 weeks, I learnt how to make different types of footwears both for the male and female.
I was super proud of myself on what I could achieve in few weeks.
The Footwear Academy has been a blessing to young people who are passionate about footwear designing. Kudos to them.
What were your expectations during your 8 weeks training at The Footwear Academy?
Actually, I just wanted to learn as much as I could during the course of the training.
Indeed, I got much more than my expectations and I can proudly boast of producing my own shoes henceforth.
Awesome, so what’s next for you?
I certainly plan on setting up my own footwear brand in Abuja “Lord Merchant Empire”.
Wow, Drop your contact information too.
I am based in Abuja and my phone number is 08030843961.
What advice do you have for young people?
Trust God and always be around people or environment that will motivate or push you for positive development.
What an interesting story from Isaac. It was fun having you at The Academy. We wish you success in your journey ahead.
