My name is Elizabeth, a graduate who studied Economics. After my education I spent precious time searching for a white collar job forgetting that whatever you do with your hand lasts longer. The passion for fashion started after school, and I visited a tailor but I didn't achieve my aim. I moved on to another fashion school, yet to no avail, but I never gave up, till I found someone's favor who directed me to FSD - Field of Skills and Dreams Vocational Technical and Entrepreneurship Academy.

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm I am writing this mail. It all started on that wonderful day - December 19th 2012, a Wednesday to be precise, I walked up to a Business Seminar sponsored by United Parcel Service UPS in conjunction with Foundation for Skills Development FSD at Ikeja.
I had a thrilling session that was mind-blogging and revealing. Before then, I had an accident July 26th 2012 on a business trip in Eket, where I almost lost my life but thanks be to God for his miraculous intervention.

Alumnus Kemi Sanwoolu opened Master's Touch Fashion House, Abuja in April 2013. She cannot totally express her appreciation for FSD for the great turnaround she has witnessed; but then FSD cannot also fully express how PROUD we are of our alumni. They run with the vision and they race with the skills they acquire at FSD.

At FSD i learnt how to make ankara shoes and bags. After my training, i started making bags for people around me. I made for my neighbours, cousins, aunties and other people that saw my product online (BBM and Whatsapp). When i got back home after service, I was invited by the Youth zonal coordinator of winners chapel to teach the youths the skill i acquired. I also learnt how to wrap bibles and other books with ankara in my spare time. Today I'm so fulfilled and thank God for ordering my feet to FSD.

FSD has helped me so much in building skills and abilities in designing and sewing of clothes. I started with making simple dresses for myself which i learnt to do during my NYSC year. I learnt this skill in a space of months and now I am making money from it despite having a regular job. FSD is truly a place to be.

My sister- Mariam – introduced me to FSD in 2009. I was a restless young man; but she believed I had a passion and she wanted me to pursue it.
I loved to draw and I was creative, but I did not know how to take it to the next level, I kept doing several things and was not just getting it right. I enrolled for a six month course in Furniture craft. I persevered and FSD believed in me.
There were times, when I was the only student in the class, yet I was always well taught by the FSD trainer. By 4months, I was making beautiful pieces of furniture, even my sister, family and friends could not believe when they saw the pictures.
FSD taught me Furniture Craft and Entrepreneurship. Immediately after my 6months training, FSD got me an IT job which helped develop both my craft and business skills quickly. In less than 3months at that firm, I knew I was ready to fly. I picked another job where in less than a year; I rose to become a supervisor.
Today, my company invites FSD to supply them more staff than even FSD can graduate, because of my performance. I am back in part-time school at weekends; self-sponsored and I am pursuing my dream and doing well. FSD thank you. My sister Mariam – I love you.
