Two Students of Rivers State, Alex Mimi and Loveth Ichemati, who won Princewill Trust Vision and Opportunity Challenge, left Nigeria, on Wednesday, for a one-week all-expense-paid Bootcamp/tour to Dubai.
The trip sponsored by “Princewill Trust Vision and Opportunity Challenge” , is activity-packed and will include a visit to educational institutions & learning centers, the Museum of the future, City tours, lunch with mentors, a visit to the DEWA Solar Innovation Centre, and many other engaging activities.
For the winners of the highly competitive opportunity challenge, it is a dream come true and an opportunity that they intend to take full advantage of.
Alex Mimi, one of the winners of the challenge, said she would learn a lot from the trip.
Mimi said she saw the challenge advertised on Instagram, knew it was real because of who is behind it and had to convince her parents that it was not a scam.
She said that her parents allowed her to participate in the challenge having verified that it was not a scam.
Another winner of the challenge, Loveth Ichemati, an only child who recently lost her mother, said life has been tough for her as she had to drop out of university years ago after she got admission to study law because she had no money to pay fees.
Ichemati stated that she had to find work, save money and was able to get back in University, training herself and pointed out that she was surprised to see the opportunity when it came round again.
“I had missed it before and did not look back when I saw the Dubai opportunity again. This is my first time outside PH. I have never even been to Lagos, talk less of Dubai. I just believed and applied myself. Now I’m here,” she stated.
Princewill, founder of the trust and the brain behind the challenge, said human investments like the opportunity challenge will go a long way to shape “the society of our dream.”
He said the testimonies from previous winners have been nothing short of inspiring and added that believe that the present set of winners will bring back a few of their own testimonies.
