Founder of the Trust and the brain behind the challenge, Prince Tonye Princewill had this to say, “Human investments like this go a long way to shape the society of our dream. My dream has always been to expose young minds to endless possibilities, give them a platform to explore and do what I can to nurture their visions into realities.

“For the winners, it is a dream come true and an opportunity that they intend to take full advantage of.

One of the winners; Alex Mimi vowed to “soak in the experience and learn as she goes along”. She had seen the challenge advertised on Instagram, knew it was real because of who was behind it, but had to convince her parents that it was not a scam, thanks to fears of human trafficking that are more and commonplace these days. “Both my parents had to research, research and research until they were sure, before they let me proceed.”

Also, Loveth Ichemati, an only child who recently lost her mum said that 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. She then had to find work, save money and try again.

Currently she is back in University, training herself and was pleasantly surprised to see this 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.”
