The Emmanuel Inyang Foundation Meet/Greet Entreprenuers session of today was a huge success.
The session started with a visit to Justina Inyang; CEO of Tina’s Chops. Justina a graduate of Mass Communication from the Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic started making peanuts & chin-chin after being trained by Lucy Eboh of Lucious food empire. She narrated of how her acquisition of skill has helped provide funds for her immediate needs and helped sustained her family. She encouraged youths to acquire skills as it makes them to be self-sufficient & reliant.
Thereafter, we met Udy Eboh; maker of car wash & air freshener. Uduak was trained in cosmetology by Utibe Akwa of Utytrends Enterprises. Her products are of high quality and we encourage you to patronize the made-in Akwa Ibom car wash & air freshener.
The team took a trip to meet with Eddy Eyen; CEO of Elegant Stitches located at 7 Udontre street, Uyo. Edidiong, holds a BA & MA in Theater Arts from the University of Uyo and University of Ibadan respectively. Edidiong, who learnt tailoring during her stay in Ibadan shared her entrepreneurial story with the team. Edidiong started off sewing at the confines of her room, but now owns a business place and she’s training other female youths in tailoring. She organized a free one (1) month training for youths in September and she’s been a source of inspiration to the younger generation that despite being a masters degree holder has developed her passion for tailoring and dreams to grow her fashion business to be more of the biggest brands.
The Meet/Greet Entreprenuer team left to meet with Aniebiet Antia; CEO of Antia’s Farm located at school road off Abak road, Uyo. Aniebiet is passionate about agriculture and he is currently training youths who’re interested in learning best farming practices.
Also, the team visited Nelly Johnson, a 400 student of Urban and Regional Planning of the University of Uyo who makes varied fascinators, bow-ties & side bag. Nelly, is really an inspiration to the other youths as she’s training them on how to make fascinators and she dreams to own a big fashion house in the near future.
Finally, the team visited Abasiama Basigz, CEO of Basigz Couture & Gallery. At Basigz, Abasiama who makes red-carpet dresses took us to his show-room where he displays the superb dress he makes.
