My name is Ebeh Chinedu Emmanuel. I am a final year medical student in the prestigious University of Nigeria. I was born 22nd February 1998, and I'm from Enugu state, Nigeria. I have great passion for youth empowerment, Leadership, Personal development and Wealth Creation. My greatest motivation is that great men and women are not born, they are made. Captivating young ones and revealing to them that they have the ability and potentials to achieve any height they desire gives me great pleasure. I have served in various capacities as a leader in school, NGOs, and associations. I love knowledge and learning something new daily and this have led me to enroll in different online courses in Digital marketing, Videography, Graphic Designs, Entrepreneurship, Social media Management, Amazon Publishing, Content creation. With my knowledge in some of this courses, I realized that everyone can have the same opportunity to learn these skills irrespective of age, gender, class, financial status, occupation, location. This birthed the vision of AlphaDesigns Academy and Business School.
