The academy was time for to reinvent my personal attitude to creativity. Learning and adopting better strategies to face the outside world. I can't forget FCLA. Thanks to all the organisers.
Thank you Favour for being part of this year's programme. You are an examplary scholar.
It was an amazing experience. I have been able to learn so much about the industry and I have also learned what it takes to be a creative. The Seminars played a very huge impact. I got to work with other amazing creatives across different universities, and it's just an amazing feel. I am super proud of myself for being a part of this. Thank you so much for this opportunity. God bless.
Thank you Damilola Jimoh.
The 2020 FCLA programme was a great experience for me as it gave me the opportunity to work on briefs, meet students from other schools and also work with them to provide possible solutions to the problems we have identified in our society.
The training sessions were also very impactful as I was able to glean knowledge from the seasoned speakers.
I'm happy the FCLA team found a way to make the programme happen despite the initial barrier posed by the pandemic.
This is something I will like to be a part of again!

Well done Racheal. You really did well. Keep it up !
Getting courage to take the leap.
That's how I would describe my FCLA experience.
Deep down in our minds, we believe we can fly, but we often lack the courage to take the leap. The Future Creative Leaders Academy (FCLA) — "the courage academy" — was the platform for a lot of my colleagues and me to find that courage to take a leap into the world of possibilities.
The FCLA presented an opportunity to learn from the industry's finest starting from the Dean, Mr. Lampe Omoyele, to a host of experts who taught insightfully on modules like storytelling, creative strategy, content creation, artificial intelligence & human creativity. The FCLA also had a lot of other exciting hands-on activities.
The highlight of the event for me was networking with other future creative leaders and the pitch competition where we were tasked to offer innovative solutions to solve the out-of-school problem in Nigeria, and I clinched the prize to attend the Dubai Lynx festival.
Like the jurors said during the pitch competition, and I reiterate,
"this is a good start, and it can only get better from here."
I want to appreciate the organizers of the FCLA, Mr. Nnamdi Ndu, and every resource person that made this program memorable for us.

Thank you Ayobami Olajide. You made your school proud. Up Covenant !
It was a very eventful experience for me. I now know better as to what to do when I'm required to work on briefs. The seminars was very insightful, it provided me the opportunity to broaden my horizon and I'm thankful for the group project also as it availed me the opportunity to connect with like minded individuals. Thank you CHINI Africa.
Thank you Omolola ! Best wishes in your career.
The FCLA experience was thrilling and challenging to say the least, from the tasks to the webinars. The opportunity of listening to industry professionals on various topics and experiences was an eye-opener on many levels. Rubbing minds with other creatives made the experience even more memorable as we got to breakdown briefs.
A massive ups to the "Strategist" and the CHINI Africa team 👍.
Thank you Daniel. We are delighted that you had a great experience at the academy.

It was SO insightful. It helped me learn, develop skills, make friends, network and that’s just the least bit. I also value my role as a creative in the industry that is advertising even more so. It really was fun being a part of the making of future Kings 👑and Queens👑. Thankyou FCLA! God bless you✨✨✨✨
