Hosts of the event were the wonderful Cool FM OAPs Destiny Amaka and Mannie. It was also well attended by celebrities and dignitaries like Betty Irabor, Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Andrea Chizoba Okpalangwu, Ikechukwu, amongst others.
The competition, which started with scouting young ladies from the University of Port-Harcourt, University of Lagos and University of Abuja, saw 18 contestants to the boot camp where they were trained and coached by the likes of Maje Ayida on fitness and Falana in music.
Chisom won the competition with her talent, she did well in the task of singing, dancing, modeling and proved to be an all-rounder in regards to the attributes needed for the Dare2Dream winner.
On her experience during the Dare2Dream training process, Chisom says.
“My experience at Dare2Dream has made me see the world in a different light. I learnt to always deliver because no one cares about your excuses. I learnt discipline and humility, self-awareness, how to define my purpose and how to take deliberate steps towards achieving my dreams.”
Given this amazing platform, when asked about how she feels being the winner, she said.
“Being the winner of Dare2Dream has been life changing I must confess. My colleagues in school respect me a lot more, my family is so proud of me and I must not forget to add that my social media profile has been blessed too. But most importantly winning has made me realize that I have been handed a great responsibility and I must not disappoint the people who have given me this opportunity and anyone else out there who may look up to me.”
On what the world should expect from her as the winner, Chisom says.
“I believe both the Nigerian audience and the international market should watch out for me because I intend to steal their hearts with a smile, a pair of heels, a fierce attitude and of course focus and hard work. I love you all.”
Joining the league of Kinabuti Dare2Dream winners, Chisom is in line to inspire young women with her story and all the things she would achieve with the Dare2Dream platform supporting her.
