Winners of the 2022 edition of the Princewills Trust Vision and Success Opportunity Challenge have just departed for a one-week all-expense-paid Bootcamp and tour to Dubai.

This second edition saw thousands of youths in tertiary institutions from across various LGAs in Rivers State compete passionately in a test of vision, imagination, creativity, and tenacity.

The trip which is activity-packed will include a visit to educational Institutions and 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

Prince Tonye Princewill, founder of the trust and the brain behind the challenge, 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. The testimonies from previous winners have been nothing short of inspiring and we believe that this set of winners will bring back a few of their own testimonies too.

My gratitude goes to God for placing us in a position to give back and to the ever helpful Dubai Department for Economy and Tourism (DET) represented by Stella Fubara and her team at their Africa desk. Your support has made it possible to make a difference bigger than we could have thought. Finally, I want to thank Nneka Oduah and her fantastic team at CLR for not only making it memorable, but possible in the first place. Your attention to detail is a lesson for even the best of us.”

For the winners, it is a dream come true and an opportunity that they intend to take full advantage of. Alex Mimi on her part 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”, Alex Mimi said
