My name is Blessing Emmanuel Akpan, 29 years old, a native of Akwa-Ibom State, Nigeria. I graduated from the University of Calabar, Cross River State in the year 2015 where I bagged a Bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology. I proceeded to participate in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) from April 2016 to April 2017. Growing up with parents who are entrepreneurs has been a motivation for my desire for entrepreneurship. My parents taught me that hard work and frugality were a man’s sustaining power, those points registered into my subconscious as the only way to be successful. I was taught to be independent and to have planned goals towards every one of my needs.
My undergraduate degree in Marine Biology was another motivation for my fired-up entrepreneurial passion for aquaculture and fishery. I obtained a diploma in industrial technology shortly before proceeding for my national service, this in a bid to learn the use of engineering and manufacturing technology to have more effective and efficient production.
