My name is Oghmeochuko Paul, I was a student in the 2013B class at the Ajegunle LIFE center. Before attending the training program, I worked with Frededo Prints for 3 years. I heard about the LIFE training from my younger sister who attended the training before me. During her training days, she came home daily with news of the activities at the center. More important is the fact that I noticed that she was beginning to change – the improvements I noticed were remarkable and I craved them too, so I decided to apply for the program.
The ICT classes were very practical. I found the Graphics Design classes very interesting. For a fact, it was the foundation of my choice of course (Fine Art) at Yaba College of Technology, Lagos. This skill has also provided me with financial opportunities – as I get paid for the designs I do for people. The Life Skills classes helped build my communication skills and confidence. My entrepreneurship skills are now top notch, coupled with all I later learnt from Wave Academy after my program. I am now a Pastry Chef at The WheatBaker, Lagos. I intend combining my Graphic Designs and Pastry Skills in a business after school.
