The Dare2Dream tour arrived Benin for the first time but judging from the enthusiasm and the turnout, you would think we had always been here. The students of UniBen showed us immediately that they were not here to play.

The response for entries was just as fervent. There were lots of registrations especially for those in the model category. The contestants strutted with as much grace as they would on international catwalks. Their performance drew cheers from the appreciative crowd made of their friends and university community.

Uniben showcased ambition and skill and feistiness. Jessica Itepu, a modelling contestant captured the UniBen spirit perfectly.

“Even though I didn’t qualify for the final round, for the first time, I am not sad.” she said “I don’t know how you all did it, but somehow you changed my mindset about 'not winning’. Before now I was afraid to enter competitions for fear of losing and I was scared to showcase my talent on Instagram for fear of critics but you taught me differently.

I just want to say a big thank you to Dare2Dream for the great opportunity. Thanks for coming to Uniben. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to show our talents to the world. Thanks for the corrections and advice.”

With such a buoyant spirit, we are sure we have not heard the last of Jessica yet.

Like Jessica, you need to check out the Dare2Dream tour and see if it is coming to a campus near you. This may be the missing link to your big platform and future.
