The Dare2dream Bootcamp Review
THE dare2dream team and FCMB Dare2BePurple team with the finalists from Uniport flew to Lagos via Dana Air. At the Airport the team bumped into Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, who shared her Dare 2 Dream for Nigeria. Once they arrived MM2 airport in Lagos, they were joined by the UniAbuja finalists and they met the Unilag participants at the Africa Future | Bridging the development Gap event, an inspiring gathering sharing ideas for change and development.
The 18 finalists totally got into the mood of Dare2Dream project and the motivations behind it.
Finally the full team together with the finalists reached the Federal palace Hotel and Casino in Lagos VI, where Francesca explained program, rules and regulations of the bootcamp.
The bootcamp started with the FCMB Challenge at the FCMB HQ in Marina with master class by human right activist and democracy advocate Mrs Hafsat Abiola Costello.The girls felt a lot of emotions and inspiration running through their veins and some even broke into tears. “My father used to say my religion is love, and love doesn’t know any boundary.” and “you girls are focusing on your modelling career, and your academic career, I want you to focus on your political career too and get involved in your communities”. Dr Ola Orekunrin, the flying doctors also shared with the girls her story and views what to be an entrepreneur means : “Entrepreneurship is the ability to believe, despite the resource you control“ and she added “Success is a lousy teacher, you learn everything from failure”.
Back to the Federal Palace the girls attended a masterclass on healthy eating and lifestyle by Maje Ayida followed by a fitness class. The day ended at the Federal Palace Hotel and casino with the modelling class by Bola from Few Model Management to get the girls ready for the photoshoot session. After make up was done by Maybelline NYC, Dare2Dream film director and photographer: Marcello Pastonesi started the photoshoot who saw 6 girls posing in front of the camera for the Kinabuti Vlisco Cosa Nostra Collection which will be officially launched at the Federal Palace on the 6th December for the Grand finale of Dare2Dream.
Day 13 saw the Dare2Dream participants facing the first elimination. Some shed some tears when jurors decided the 12 participants remaining in the competition. The six eliminated will be going home via Dana Air and leave the Federal Palace Hotel & Casino. The day continued with the full Team heading to the Fela Shrine for session2 of the Kinabuti Vlisco Cosa Nostra Collection.
Day 14 started with interview at COOL FM with Mannie and the angels, followed by Wazobia FM. The girls got the chance to be interviewed by their favourite presenters and share with the audience what they have learnt so far at the Bootcamp. The 12 participants then moved to the COOL FM/Wazobia Studio to attend a masterclass by Onimisi Adaba who taught the girls about diction and which are the key elements when presenting. Every girl had the chance to present themself and receive a constructive feedback by Onimisi on how to improve their way of presenting. The girls were very grateful with the feedback received and got back to the Federal Palace Hotel for Dance Class with ICE and the dancers of SPAN.
The girls are working very hard to be the new face of FCMB, the winner will be announced at the Grand Finale at the Federal palace Hotel and Casino on Sunday 6th December at 7pm. The event would be presented by DJ Xclusive and Zainab Balogun.
