Cynthia, has always wanted to be a makeup artiste but she knew she needed two things
- She needed training by professionals
- She needed finance to kick off her project and fulfill her dreams
So, in other to achieve that, Cynthia started by reselling items such as clothes , jewelries, bags etc which she collects from sellers , she then goes back to school sells to her fellow students, she sends back her cost price to the owners of the goods and keeps the profits of her sales to herself. At times , the owners of the goods gives her commission or tips for her resilience and good salesmanship. She continued like this until she was able to save out some money which she used to enroll in a makeup school. After her training which lasted for three months , December 2016 , she set up her own business. Like every start up, she has faced a lot of challenges and still continues to face them, but she has decided to face the challenges and come out successful , Cynthia ibeneme is our campus celebrity of the week .

She achieved this while combining ENTREPRENEURSHIP with her academics, We call her an ACA-PRENEUR. We wish her well in all endeavours.
