- It was a tour like no other and now that it is over, we stand and look back at how far we have come, and the achievements stun even us.
Five campuses. From beautiful Jos dreaming of peace to energetic Uniport. And then it was unforgettable Uniben and on to enthusiastic Unilag. We arrived Unical and found a vibrant campus. Every campus had a different energy, but it was all great energy.
It was five campuses and thousands of youths competing and learning, dreaming and working to see those dreams come true. It was five times of free learning from Google who taught digital skills to FCMB who educated on youth entrepreneurship.
The tours were times for talent nurturing by some of Nigeria’s largest companies. Imperial Leather and Canoe taught and sponsored upcoming designers and shall continue in Bootcamp. Most of the designers learned about Moodboard Creation for the first time ever.
From the hundreds of contestants, there were 30 who stood out representing skill and passion. They learned that winning on campus is just the beginning. As they dived into their assignments, they have shown incredible mettle completing assignments on Google Digital Skills, Social Media Management and CV preparation
Out of the twenty performing artists and models, 13 are making it to boot-camp. Their grit and commitment in this bridge phase has paid off and now they go forward to realize their dreams. Who are those 13? Watch this space tomorrow and find out who made it.
