    MY TALENTS AND SKILLS AND HOW IT WILL ALLEVIATE ME FROM POVERTY

    Over the years, I have come to realize what I am actually good at. And they are under listed below:
    1. Child care
    2. Playing football

    CHILD CARE
    Since when I cannot remember, I have come to find out myself to be very fond of children and also very good at taking good care of them in such a way that the children would not even notice the absence of their parents and their parents would not be bothered as to the wellbeing of their child because they know the child is well taken care of by me. This started up when I was still very much little, I came to realize that I love being around children and not only do I love being around them, they also love being around me. Whenever they came to be, they usually do not see any reason to go back to their parents. This went on and on until I came to a conclusion that it was a talent and not just a talent but my talent. Children usually come to me whenever they cry and suddenly they are laughing and playing around again to the extent that they usually do not like going back to their parents. This even led to one of our relatives deeming me fit to serve as one of her children’s godmother. So over the years, I have grown to love children and vice versa. I am not yet a mother but I serve as mothers to many kids out there.
    This talent can be developed to the extent of it yielding income for me in the next 5-10 years by establishing a child care centre. I can start out small probably by using a single room in my father’s house then if there is turn up, we will progress to a rented apartment. With time if the number of children increases we can get a better place and a much more permanent settlement to train the children. The centre will be involved in inculcating new and good moral values into the children and extricating bad behaviours. I believe due to the fact that child loves and listens to me, they will obey me and if one parent gives a positive commendation about my centre, more parents will bring their children which will eventually lead to me opening a school for children.

    FOOTBALL
    I loved the game of football right from when I was still very much little. Any time I see a group of children usually boys playing the game of football, I am usually envious of them. My request to join them is usually constants declined owing to the fact that I am a girl. After so many denials, I was opportune to visit my mum’s village one weekend like that, fortunately for me, I met a group of boys and girls playing football, I requested to join them and my request was granted. I was overjoyed when they agreed could join them to make up for their shortage in player. I quickly ran inside and put on my playing boot and rushed out to join them. I was very happy because it was my first time to play a real football with real opponents. After that day, during weekends I usually visit my mum’s village to join them in training. This went on and on until I entered secondary school. I joined the female football team and further developed my skill. When I gained admission into the higher institution, it was not difficult for me to adapt. Before long, I was nominated to join the faculty team that would participate in Ozumba’s cup and after the tournament I came back with a gold medallion of honour. I also participated in my faculty’s inter-departmental football tournament of which I also came back with a gold medallion as well. Over the years, I have grown to love the football game and I have also grown to be good at it both at the goal post and in the field of play.
    This skill can generate income for me in the sense that if I engage in rigorous football training, it will get to a point that I can use my skills and experience that I have gathered in both faculty and departmental football matches to make way for me to the national level. I strongly believe that the skill will yield income for me within 5-10years if I relentlessly work towards it.

    MY TALENT AND SKILLS AND HOW IT WILL GENERATE WEALTH FOR ME IN THE NEAREST FUTURE

    TEACHING
    Teaching in a simple term is the act and art of impacting knowledge. There is this popular saying that goes like this “teachers are born not made”. I believe I was born a teacher. Being a teacher does not necessarily mean going to school and studying education, graduate and enter class and be called a teacher, it involves more than that. Some so called teacher do the work because there is no job in the country, some do it for money, but only a few has passion for it, only few know that it is the foundation of that child that they are building, and if the foundation is faulty, the whole building will be faulty.
    I have been a teacher since my graduation from secondary school in 2013. At first I did not know that I could do what it entails, because before that time, I only dealt with teaching one or two persons at a time but when I was employed, I was faced with d challenge of teaching about 40 pupils, but what helped me most was the fact that they were in primary school. At least I could look them in the eye and teach them. Though now I can teach both junior and senior secondary school students including Jambites and undergraduate because over the years, I have grown the charisma and courage to face them, knowing that I am the person that has something to offer and not vice versa. I love teaching children, and over the years in my place of work, I have received award of the best teacher of the year thrice. With that I say that I am an experienced and competent teacher but not qualified, this means that I can do the work but I am not certified by the ministry of education to do the work. I believe that is a talent.
    I intend to develop my teaching skills by first going to the higher institution to get certified so as to be called a qualified, competent, experienced and certified teacher by the teachers’ registration council of Nigeria (TRCN). Secondly I intend to further my education to post graduate level. I intend to become a lecturer in the nearest future and progress to becoming a professor. Thirdly I intend to own a school. The school will comprise primary and secondary sections. Not only do I want to create wealth for myself but I also intend to create more employment opportunities to reduce the rate of unemployment and move our economy closer to achieving the status of development. Furthermore, I intend to develop my teaching skills to the extent of making more teachers. Bringing to light those that have the talent hidden in them. In the process of doing this, I will attain the greatest height in education which is professorship.

    ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONIC GADGET REPAIR
    This skill has been active right from childhood. I do not know if I should call it a talent. This is something I did not go anywhere to learn. It just happened that I tend to dismantle anything I lay my hands on, just to see how the wires are connected. From there I wanted to study electrical/electronic engineering in school, but I was misled when I was about entering SSS1.
    I intend to develop this skill by first going to obtain a degree in a higher institution. I believe when I get to school, I will be able to learn the ways to do it better and eventually after that, I will show my skills to the world and I believe after this, I will not seek for jobs but jobs will seek for me. I do not intend to specialize in gadget repair. What I really want is to be able to produce those gadgets myself. Gadget repair is just a starting point to what I want to achieve and when I start producing, due to the effectiveness and efficiency of my gadgets, people will be forced to patronize me and by that way I will earn money.

    My talent and skill are what I have passion for doing.
    I have passion for cooking while I was growing as a teenager, i notice that when ever I made food for my parents they enjoyed it so my passion for cooking kept on increasing. I started cooking when I was in primary six, back then my siblings will say because I like eating food so i should prepare food for myself and my siblings.
    With my attitude towards food so I developed great passion for cooking different varieties of food. As years go's by I had to start learning from experts and going for outdoor cooking with them and make money from it. Apart from making of money, learnt how to prepare different types of meals and different methods of cooking them.
    Apart from this cooking stuff. After my first degree program, I went into fashion and designing where am learning how to make feet wears like shoes,Sandals which I use carton papers to create design's.

    MARCH, 2019.

    The talent and skill that I have acquired is teaching and cooking. It all started while I was growing up as a teenager, my mum is a business woman, so she's always busy and being the only female child of my parent, I had to Cook even the food I wasn't taught how to prepare. With this, I had to develop passion to cook varieties of food, using different methods and my parent loved it and always correct me when necessary. So that led to my passion of being a caterer and event planner but when I told my mum about it, she rejected the idea immediately. I decided that if I gain admission into the higher institution, I will register with a caterer and event planner but when I came into Nsukka, I ask if I can get a good caterer and event planner around the school premises but couldn't find any like those ones in Abuja.
    So, I had to use another means to develop my cooking skill, I go on YouTube and watch different chefs cook and try it on my own. With this I have improved greatly on my cooking skill. In other to make Money, I intended to cook for families, like home service, here in Nsukka but after much consultations, I discovered that I can't achieve much of it here compared to Abuja where you can have so many clients.
    So, I have intended to continue learning more and more methods of cooking varieties of food especially local dishes like bitterleaf soup, oha soup, egusi, Ogbonor and the rest of them. Then when I graduate from this institution, I will have to enrol for a six months or one year course with a caterer and event planner in Abuja.
    On the other hand, teaching is also a passion that I have developed during the years, I started teaching in Nursery and Primary School immediately after my secondary school. Then, I enrolled into Federal College of Education, Abuja. And after the program, I started teaching Junior and senior classes in secondary schools. I taught Mathematics, Economics, Business studies and Commerce. And then I enrolled into UNN to acquire myB.Ed.
    With the skill of cooking and event planning plus being a teacher. I can be a teacher and still carry out the catering job, this will bring income from both sides, not only will it bring income, my family members will also benefit from it because they will be able to consume good meal at all times.

    A Talent or Skill is said to be an innate ability to carry out or perform a particular task with minimal difficulty. For me, I have always been fond of computers, back then, I always had this curiosity for computers and what they were capable of doing that as time progressed, I learnt how to use some of the applications on my own and without much difficulty.
    Now, in the university, I could use it to do certain things that most of my colleagues couldn’t, and I always did certain tasks for them which had to involve the use of computers such as creating websites, presentations, setting up blogs, etc. in which I was paid.
    Now, speaking about my short term plans for creating wealth, I would say for the next five years, that I would want to go further in developing myself, getting to learn more things, that I don’t already know, delving into the world of programming such as python, java, C++ and so on, then after that rendering my Talent/Skill set to those who are in need of them for a considerable amount of payment thereby adding my own quota, to the development of the Nigerian economy.
    Now, speaking about my long term plans for creating wealth, I would say for the next ten years, that I see myself starting up my own company (A computing firm to be precise) were our goal would be to provide various organizations with the necessary tools needed for them to stand out and compete favorably in the media such as creating and designing their websites, promoting their organizations on social media, advertizing of their products, providing data from the e-public for financial analysis and so forth. Hence, creating wealth and adding my very own quota to the development of the Nigerian Economy as we know it.
    In Conclusion, using my talent/skill to create wealth and develop the Nigerian Economy in the short term (five years) as well as in the long term (ten years).

    Topic: Discuss on your talent and the skills you have developed, how do you intend to develop your talent and your skill to create wealth for you and take you out of poverty in the medium term (5 years).
    Defining the term "talent" as a marked natural ability or aptitude or skills. It is also a desire or inclination for something.
    According to the business dictionary talent is a natural ability to excel at a duty or actions. A group of people, such as employees, who have a particular aptitude for certain tasks. For example, producers of a movie might recruit local talent, actors and actresses who live nearby, to stand in as extra in a film. We have some examples of talents such as public speaking, writing, singing , dancing, drawing, cooking, sporting, acting, praying, self management, networking, and so many of them. Talents are very important in ours because some people can improve theirs to create wealth to themselves and also use it to pursue away poverty.
    Sporting: I was ten when I discovered that sporting was my talent then I was still in primary school although I tried to prove it out by participating in games or sport competition whenever they invite my school for competition. Then when I entered secondary school I was also doing the same, I do participate very well in match past during those days when we normally go for children's day and independence day which my school normally get first position and not only that, in my secondary school then, when we organized an inter-house sport where the school will share the students into different houses and also invite some other schools to join them, my house was blue house then I participated in almost all activities such as football, volleyball, long and high jump, match past, throwing javelin and short put, table tennis. After everything my house got the overall first position. Now I got admission in University of Nigeria Nsukka in 2016, during my 200 level I joined a female football team in the department of economics and also tried to write down my name in female volleyball team, then in my 200level during the departmental week my class played well and we got second position and the director of games (D.O.G) gave us medal for that. But among all these sport activities I like football and volleyball most. I intend to improve this after my education through coaching or applying for any sports organization or school to learn more about it which at the end I pray I will succeed and do well, I may be given a scholarship to go abroad for international sporting which will yield money for me and take away poverty from myself and my next generation.
    Talking about skill, skill is the capacity to do something well, techniques or ability. Skills are usually acquired or learned, as to oppose to abilities which are often thought of as innate. Before I got admission I went for computer training skill of which I know that after my studying if am able to settle down, open a cyber cafe or I.C.T center where I do can online or internet browsing, printing and typing, with these am sure that I will create wealth to myself and my next generation and also take away poverty for a medium term. But I still have the intention of learning or acquiring more skills like fashion and designing I hope this will create wealth for me if am able to learn it very well. So with these intention of mine, the skill I have acquired and the talent I have gifted with, am sure that am not going to face anything like poverty my life and I will make money for myself and my generation.

    Skill: A skill is a type of work or activity which requires special training and knowledge.
    Skill is the knowledge and ability that enables you to do something well.
    My talent
    I believe everyone has unique skills and talents, and that is what makes each one of us special. People realize their different talents at different stages in their lives. Giving back to the community by sharing the skills I have is what makes the difference.
    I am proud to say my special but hidden talents are acting and writing.
    I have the ability to perform the unimaginable once I'm before the camera, I think its imbedded. I've never really had an opportunity to let blossom the very things I think my talent is "acting and writing ". I practice acting as long as I am alone in the room that is because I am afraid to let anyone else see it.
    I’m good at writing too, literature kind of writing, short stories, poems. I have a couple of stories I started writing but I have not really had the patience to complete them. But currently I don't know if I still have a knack for it.
    My skill
    I'm a hair stylist, although its more like a talent than a skill, I've always known how to style hair even before I had the opportunity of being under the tutelage of a stylist. I have undergone a six months training on hairstyling, I can virtually do anything with any hair except I've never seen it done or such a thing has actually never been done. Overtime, even while at home and here in school, this has fetched me a reasonable amount of money.
    I have almost a lifetime experience in business management, being born into a business oriented family, I've been into business directly and indirectly, this has sharpened my manageability skill, it will go a long way when I'm ready to start up my business.

    Considering the current economic condition of our beloved country, wisdom demands that I use what I have while it still serves and while I still can.
    For long term, I intend to start up a very big hairstyling shop as a source of extra income that way I wouldn't bother about whether or not I get a white collar job.
    For my talent (acting and writing), I will give a try to any opportunities that surface, like going for auditions, partaking in writing competitions. I really wish to speak to the world through my acting and writing (educatively).
    I suppose I will conclude by saying “the saddest thing in life is wasted talent” Yes! If everyone wasted their talents, we wouldn’t have the doctors, lawyers, writers, actors, athletes or artists we have today. They didn’t waste their talent, so why would I?

    Question
    Discover your talent, develop it with your skills you have acquired and discuss how you intend to use your talent and skill to create wealth for you and take you away from poverty between five to ten years and above.
    Answer
    A talent is a free ability or gift that our creator has installed in us. Different people have different talent and some people have more than one talent. I happen to be among those our creator blesses with multiple talents. I posses critical thinking skills, I'm detail oriented,I posses good maths skills, I'm a hair stylist, I'm a really good singer, I draw really well, I'm good with designing, I posses good advisory skills and above all I'm a good cook.
    I have various skills especially those related to my chosen career path but I still have this innate flair for cookery. Cooking is not just a talent, it is my hobby. Cooking is something I enjoy doing, it is how I just make my self feel good after a bad day, it is an ability I was born with and I started practicing from a tender age. I enjoy trying out new delicacies, new herbs, new seasonings, new spices, new methods of cooking and I love learning new recipes. Not just Nigerian recipes, recipes from across the world as long as their ingredients are within my reach. A good meal is the beginning of happiness and I believe that a person that is able to deliver a good meal is a source of happiness. I have not attended any form of culinary school although I'll love to attend one later, everything I know was as a result of my personal research, reading books, watching food oriented shows, watching food making tutorials. Most people believe that making a good food is simply by following the steps required correctly but it is way more than that. To present a good dish, one has to understand the ingredients and the spices in other to get a good dish that has all the needed ingredent in the perfect proportion . This is the only way the meal can hit the right buds.
    There are so many reasons I love to cook, cooking is one of those things that just comes naturally for me, and I think I inherited, because I can cook almost anything and nail it on the first try.Taking up cooking as a career and becoming a chef or a Professional cook is a rewarding career. Although I really want a career in economics, I still want to have a catering business at the side since it is something I still have passion for. I also have planned of start up a channel on YouTube when I get my camera. It would be where I can teach other people what I know about good food, how to prepare it and share my love of cooking with someone who shares the same passion for cooking as I do.This in return can yield financial benefits. I know many people will disagree when I say cooking is a skill that is essential in reducing their stress levels but it works for me. when I am cooking I have very little time to think, because the cooking is challenging my mind and taking my mind off the stress of everyday life. My opinion is that cooking is the best hobby to have, because it can be very useful in life.

    MY IDENTIFIED TALENT AND SKILLS I HAVE DEVELOPED AND HOW I INTEND TO CREATE WEALTH, DEVELOP THE ECONOMY AND TAKE MYSELF OUT OF POVERTY WITHIN 5 TO 10 YEARS.
    Going on the journey of self discovery I realized unlike most persons whose talents ranges from singing, acting, drawing, writing to cooking which are common, mine is quite different. My talent is the ability to identify a good story when I see one, that is to say having a keen eye for a good storyline. The question that will likely arise is; “How will a keen eye generate income not to mention taking me out of poverty in the long-run?” Before I give an answer, I will like to give a preview on how I came about this talent of mine. Ever since my childhood, I have always taken delight in the literal works of people and enjoy basking in their stories which come alive in my imagination as I run through the lines. Along the line this has seemed as a hobby but it got to a point when I noticed that I do not just read them for the fun of it but then it struck me that almost all if not all of the books I have read, I can’t help but notice or discover the potentials of the writer and their story makes an impact. I have to add that I have tried in the area of writing but it’s not my calling.
    Back to the question I posed earlier. Yes, having a keen eye for talented writers can generate income and take not just my generation out of poverty but others as well. On a small scale, I can create a group or an association whose sole purpose will be to discover talented writers, help them reach their full potential and bring them out for the world to see. With time, there will be an expansion and I can have a foundation just like Tony Elumelu’s foundation, I have succeeded in creating income for myself, an avenue for talented writers to excel and succeed and finally raise my generation out of poverty. This might seem like a dream but I believe once there is will, there is a way.
    Another I will like to add is cognitive ability. This is normally categorized under skills but I see it as a talent and not an ability I acquired since it comes naturally to me. It’s not everybody that have the ability to process and understand mentally, situations they find themselves in. Some undergo training to acquire it but in my own case, it comes naturally to me. For instance, in the learning environment I easily assimilate the knowledge being passed across also the ability to reason, solve immediate problems, pay attention and remember easily. This is gaining momentum and is required in most work places as an essential ability an employer must possess.

  16. In the area of skills acquisition, I have to come to learn that skills are divided into hard and soft skills. Currently, I do believe that I have acquired most soft skills which I am still developing such as: listening skills, public speaking, self-management, resilience, trustworthiness, adaptability, ability to work under pressure, self-organization, perseverance and motivation and so on. These skills are highly sought by employers in the workplace as they invaluable to business success. They give you an edge in the business world so I believe these skills I have acquired now will distinguish me in the career I will venture into.
    Progressing, the hard skills I have acquired are baking and the act of makeover. These skills are among the thriving businesses in Nigeria at the moment. Earlier I mentioned going for makeup training. This is another lucrative business and the knowledge will go a long way in helping me establish myself and serve as another source of income. People tend to require the services of a make-up artist for birthdays, weddings, house warming ceremonies, child dedications and so many other occasions. I can be given a contract for an event, let’s say a traditional wedding to make the bride up and channel her inner beauty. Through this medium, I will create income for myself and even advertise my services and expand my contacts because people would see my work and would want to hire my services for their events. This is a business that will not die easily since events such as births, deaths, marriage union, anniversaries and so will naturally occur, so there is no fear of exiting the firm in the long-run.
    Another skill I am still developing is baking. During my leisure times, I surf the internet learning how to make different delicacies, I also experiment on my own. I love the idea of making my snack and delivering the desired taste I want. I still have the intention of further developing this skill. Earlier I have mentioned that events will always occur since they happen naturally and people tend to celebrate them. I can be given a contract, let’s say to make snacks or cake for an occasion. This is another means of generating income.
    In conclusion, the world is a competitive field and the only way to create a niche for myself is to utilize my God-given talent and develop it along with skills I have acquired. Also, irrespective of the field I will venture into, commitment, dedication and perseverance are the imperative for success.

    QUESTION:
    Discuss your talents and the skills you have developed , and how do you intend to develop your talents and skills to create wealth for you and take you out of poverty in the medium term ( 5 to 10 years).

    DISCUSSION
    Before I start, I will like to differentiate between talent and skills. Every person possesses certain skills and talent that makes us different from others. We often use the term talent and skill interchangeably, without knowing the fact that these are different from one another. Talent is an in born ability or natural aptitude of a person which is often hidden and needs recognition. It means, being good in a certain activity, without actually learning or acquiring it. Unlike skills, which is learnt ability, and it can be developed in some one if he or she puts its time and effort in it. The effort need to be voluntary, systematic and sustained, to acquire a skill and satisfactorily undertake various task and activities.
    MY TALENT
    My talent is script writing, I discovered my talent when I was 10years old, back then is my secondary school I love telling stories to my friends, every of my stories are always written down. When I grow up, I saw the joy in screen playing and script writing. I have always desired to be a producer and a director in future, in entertainment industry. I have written about 15 stories; I sold 5 of my stories to a great known director and also a script writer in Asaba. After going through my work, he told me how talented and amazing I am, he encouraged me to keep moving that I will go far in life. By next year, I will be producing my own movie[TITTLED, MINDED SOUL] with the little money I saved from my script writing.
    MY SKILLS
    My skills is hairdressing. After my waec examination, I decided to learn hairdressing for a year and six months before thinking of forwarding my education. I put its time and effort to acquire this skills, though it wasn’t easy but God Almighty has been faithful. Now I am expert, I can boast of several hair styles I can make.

    HOW I INTEND TO DEVELOP MY TALENT/SKILL TO CREATE WEALTH AND TAKE ME OUT OF POVERTY.
    I intend to develop my script writing talent by dealing with the original and fanatic concepts, being able to understand structure within scenes, sequences and acts. And also to develop a realistic situation. With all this in the next 5-10 years I can actually be the world best script writer in Nollywood with the connections I have after my graduation. I will devote time to write more script and also produce more movies to increase my income. When I graduate I will open a very big saloon for myself, I will expand it to a very high level by employing so many workers in other to render a perfect service to my costumers.

    QUESTION:
    Discuss your talents and the skills you have developed and how do you intend to develop your talents or skills to create wealth for you and take you out of poverty in the medium term(5 to 10 years).
    ANSWERS/DISCUSSION
    I will start by defining talent and skills; talent simply means a natural ability to be good at something, especially without being taught while skill means to have personal or practical knowledge about something, the capacity to do something well; technique, ability. Skills are usually acquired or learned, as opposed to abilities which are often thought of an innate.
    MY TALENTS
    My talents are acting and script writing. I have always desired to be an actress right from when I was yanked out of my mum’s womb. When I was growing up, I would pick up a cane and start flogging the chairs acting like a teacher. I have featured in two movies recently titled “Virgin’s Cry” and “Campus Girls” but I was given minor roles, I believe that is a stepping stone for me. In the nearest future, when I am done with my bachelor’s degree, I would venture fully into acting because there would be time for me then and with the little connection I have now, I believe the future is bright for me.
    My other talent is scriptwriting. I discovered this beautiful talent recently through the help of a friend, and I have written about seven stories/ scripts so far and I intend featuring in all the stories/movies because I brought out roles for myself in the stories, this will also help me show my talent and show the world how good I am. I intend selling the scripts to producers who will in turn pay me for my services .
    MY SKILL
    My skill is hairdressing. I learnt this skill from my mum who happens to be a professional hair stylist. Though, I am not yet an expert but I can boast of several hairstyles I can do and do it well.

    HOW I INTEND TO DEVELOP MY TALENTS/SKILL TO CREATE WEALTH FOR ME AND TAKE ME OUT OF POVERTY
    I intend developing my acting talent by venturing fully into Nollywood when I graduate, try my very best to act well in order to be given good roles and to be paid very well. Try producing movies because the more movies I produce and the more I act, the higher my profit and the money I will be paid. I would write more scripts for the movies I want to produce, this would minimize cost for me and increase my profit.
    I would also devote time to learning more hairstyles to become an expert in this field, when I become an expert, I would render extra ordinary services to my customers, make them feel comfortable and happy thereby attracting more people and make them pay well, I would expand the salon, employ workers that would work for me when I am away on my acting trip. I will still use my hairdressing knowledge at the movie industry, style or make peoples hair, get paid and reduce cost for me if is the movie I produced. I believe that if this continues, and I feature in more movies, write more scripts and produce more movies, it will create wealth for me and take me out of poverty in the medium term(5 to 10 years). I have role models in the movie industry, people that started with nothing but have something today, they are my motivators. But I can only achieve these by the help of God, so, help me God.

    A skill is the capability to carry out a task efficiently and effectively with a given amount of time,energy or both while talents are natural abilities that becomes a skill when properly developed and harnessed.Skills acquisition are needed for individual and national development.Borrowing from Walter Rodney(1972:1) definition of development as "increased skill and capacity, greater freedom,creativity,self-discipline,responsibility and material well-being", it is necessary to distinguish between hard and soft skills.Both skill sets are complementary and relevant to the overall development of an individual. Hard skills are specific knowledge and abilities that are learned through education or training.Examples include ICT skills,craftsmanship etc.Soft skills on the other hand are people skills that derives from personality traits and they are usually not quantifiable unlike hard skills.Examples include communication skills,emotional quotient etc .The hard skills that i possess are Computer technology-Microsoft office suite, Data analytics, Pivot tables,Teaching skills which comes in handy during holidays as i usually engage in academic tutorship at tutotorial centres and schools.The soft skills that i possess include: emotional intelligence Social intelligence effective communication(oral and written presentation) and an effective team player.God willing and since there is elbow room for continuous improvement,i intend to develop them to the fullest as i hope to pursue a career in "academic research" majoring in quantitative economics,modelling and econometrics.AMEN!!!!!.

  20. A DISCUSSION ON IDENTIFYING MY TALENT AND THE SKILL I HAVE DEVELOPED, AND HOW I INTEND TO DEVELOP THIS TALENT AND SKILL TO CREATE WEALTH FOR MYSELF AND MOVE AWAY FROM POVERTY.
    Generally speaking, talent as an innate ability is seen as what develops into skills. Borrowing the words of Larry Bird that “a winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, work his tail up to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals”. Our goal here is to create wealth and move away from poverty.
    Growing as a child, (I could remember vividly) that I had few talents which could be seen as what other children then also possessed. These could be jumping a high jump of my level, singing 2-3 voice parts, washing clothes very clean, or keeping things neat (people admired me for that), and the ability to assimilate and act out any practicable or skillful acts I was exposed to. I was also keeping to some good etiquette. Since then, these talents have persisted in me. Some have been developed into skills, while news ones have also been discovered. For the talent of singing, I can now sing as a solo or as a backup and even with an instrument in a harmonized manner.
    Due to my ability to assimilate, I now have the skills for making pastries and cooking, doing graphics designs/works, etc. Having embraced a new lifestyle of becoming vegan, these skills of cooking and making pastries; in fact, preparing some vegan foods/drinks, a door have been opened to take these skills to a next level that will enable me create wealth and move away from poverty.
    Right now I am considering establishing a vegan restaurant in any of our country’s developed towns in lagos, Ibadan, etc. where I can make this dream a reality. That will be after going through a little training (maybe abroad) to expand my knowledge on that. In fact with any recipes, I can prepare any vegetarian food.
    Currently, in United State of America, a lot of vegan restaurants are being established almost every year. A lot of people have also because of staying healthy embraced this lifestyle. In fact campaigns are ongoing in America for people to take health as their overall priority by welcoming this lifestyle. This can be verified on the news updates of “PIX(II) NEWS” agency where a news “NYC will have ‘Meatless Mondays’ in all public school” is updated. Other news online has it that some well-known celebrities are also embracing this lifestyle.

  21. …………In Continuation
    The above is just the situation of this lifestyle in America and other countries outside Nigeria and/or Africa. In Nigeria here, it may be hard to sensitize people on the importance of welcoming this lifestyle in order to stay healthy, because people have this mindset that everything eatable can be eaten. Not knowing that some things are not good or safe to be eaten. Biblically, vegetarianism is God’s initial plan for mankind. This can be seen in Eden, when God commanded the first man and woman to eat from the tree. He could have told them to kill one animal. Even when cursing them he pronounced that herbs/food of the earth shall they eat. Also Daniel’s pulse diet is also evidence from the bible. Even in medical field, some doctors would prescribe meatless or plant-based diet for some persons having some certain illnesses, for a particular time, till they are seen to be recovered.
    To avoid further digress from the subject of the discussion (though they go hand-in-hand), I believe that with the help of medical missionary (which I have interest in that ministry) and worker in this ministry people will be sanitized. And with a lot of adverts, this can be actualized. Entrepreneurship in this light will be promoted. Agricultural surplus will also be realized too – especially this era when great number Americans are going vegan (Plant based diet).
    Based on my ability to wash clothes very clean, I can also create wealth by establishing a cleaning and laundry services. Employing well sophisticated machines will make my work more efficient and rewarding.
    I believe that having the opportunity and wherewithal, I can start up with any of these things, maybe in the near future or whenever the opportunity comes, not just as a lifetime career, but as a support for a living. This is because I will definitely continue my academic pursuit to the standard level.

    Question: Discuss your identified talent and the skills you have developed. And then how do you intend to develop your talent and skill to earn money/create wealth for you and take you out of poverty.

    Talent is an ability that someone is born with. A talent (or gift , or aptitude) is the skill that someone has to do something very well that people usually like and that is difficult. Talented people may have more than one talent. Talents are very important and humans are endowed with diverse talents. Skills people commonly value as talents are entertaining, beautiful, or impressive for a different reason like Music , dancing,
    acting or sports .
    Even if someone has talent they may still have to work very hard if they want to perform well. Some people become quite good at something even if they do not have much talent, but if they are willing to work very hard at the skill.
    I in person have the gift of trying any practical skill that I come across such as liquid soap and car wash production, jik production, perfume production, buns, chin chin production and cooking food because any time I do all these things people compliment me for a work well done.
    Cooking is my passion and I love feeding others, being a chef is a lucrative way for me to earn a living. This means that by offering my services for a special event that is helping cook, cater, or host some one's dinner party/get together ,wedding,: birthday . As a chef I can actually set my own prices, work for a number of clients and specialize in my own style of cooking.
    As a student now I can still make money by producing my local detergent like liquid soap and car wash and brand it well and sell to my fellow students and lecturers for washing of plates, bikes and cars respectively at a cheaper rate than what they can actually obtain it from the market and by producing all these,it will also help me to minimize cost that is how I spend instead of buying from the market I can actually produce it and use it myself.
    From the aforementioned talents backed up with my skill acquisition ability from those areas can actually make me earn a living thereby alleviating me out of poverty and also increasing my standard of living.

  24. It was back in the year 2014 when I just concluded my secondary school Education, I was to wait for a year in order to take the jamb Examinations the next year .so instead of sitting at home been idle, I decided to Pursue catering as a skill ,although as a young girl, I have always loved to cook and try new ideas On different food , to make this dream a success, I applied for a catering class immediately, this was how I developed myself in cooking different somcious meals, baking Cakes and cupcakes, meat pie, fish pie, biscuits, making ice-cream,And so many other varieties of food. I didn't just stop at learning, I continued practicing to perfect my skills and I also Started selling meat pie, fish pie, egg roll, buns, biscuits to my neighbours around and friends with a little capital , I also visited offices and schools to advertise my self and sell to them at very affordable prices , I was really making it especially in some situations whereby some children including adults wouldn't be able to cook and eat at home because of time constraints therefore they would care well for my services ,this made very happy because in a way I was developing my community with my skills and also developing my self more than before, I would even plan for days like election days to sell to people Or any gathering at all, from there I started getting calls to events like Birthdays parties, Engagement and wedding ceremonies, matriculation, convocation ceremonies, seminars, Send off parties and so many other events.
    I had a lot of opportunities to offer my services to everyone around me through my Catering skills.along the line I encountered some challenges, I starting making more losses than I made profit , For example there was a day I spent over 47,000 in preparing snacks for an upcoming seminar but later found out that the seminar was cancelled And Also 58,000 Was lost in the recent elections that was postponed , I became bankrupt like never before but I didn't let those break downs to completely break and discourage me, In a way I found my self up again with the help of my good friends, it thought me that I shouldn't Let bad situations discourage me but encourage me more so with this I decided to give my baking services a Package and brand name to make myself more known and presentable , I don't know how God did it, I had more customers than I have always had, most people appreciated my brand and patronized me a lot, they made wonderful comments about my product and services, they said I was good and I always made Every of their events Memorable for people after eating my brand which means I was not just helping my self But contributing greatly to my community.
    I intend to keep my skill active and go world wide starting from Nigeria as my country , if I could sell more and raise enough capital I would build a bakery shop where everyone could come over to order without stress , I would make Sure My brand is distinguished from other brand in uniqueness, presentation, especially in been organized, I will try as much as possible to make sure it deliveries are always in order and on time, I will also give nutrition information about my product therefore every customer who patronizes my product will have good knowledge of what they are taking into their system.
    By heavens grace I know my skill will take me to my great destination and take me out of poverty.

    I intend to keep my skill active and go world wide starting from Nigeria as my country , if I could sell more and raise enough capital I would build a bakery shop where everyone could come over to order without stress , I would make Sure My brand is distinguished from other brand in uniqueness, presentation, especially in been organized, I will try as much as possible to make sure it deliveries are always in order and on time, I will also give nutrition information about my product therefore every customer who patronizes my product will have good knowledge of what they are taking into their system.
    By heavens grace I know my skill will take me to my great destination and take me out of poverty.

    •MY TALENT AND HOW I WILL DEVELOP IT TO CREATE WELL FOR ME IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.
    Talent can be termed as an innate ability that differentiates one from the other or the inbuilt ability or a specific ability that someone has which can be said to have been endowed upon from the time of birth which one can perform well or with ease and which was not learnt from any formal training, while skill can be termed as an additional ability to perform a specific or multiple activities which someone acquires from either learning from other people or through the internet etc., that would help yield income and better ones life by earning a living from it.
    Hence I can say that I possess the;
    ●Talent to teach.
    ●Skill to cook.
    Firstly; I would say that my talent did not manifest itself as teaching in the first stage rather, it came as being an ability of me having a good listening ears and ability of contributing meaningfully to peoples area of discussions. It was not till few years back when I was still a jamb bit that few of my neighbors who wanted to apply for WAEC started seeking for my help in tutoring them in their areas of difficulties. I started with one person, then two up to like five persons. At first I never really collected anything from them but as time went by, I tagged a small fee to it. Even though the fee was not up to the service I rendered, I was just happy with the earnest thing I did to earn that little. I would also engage in this long vacation lesson which is termed as “holiday lessons” where I also taught primary school children to earn a reasonable sum. All this I did with joy and with ease because it usually reflected in their results.
    Secondly; during the end of each semester, whenever I travel home for the semester break, the pattern of cooking in my house automatically changes. My cooking experience began from my house were every meal I cook is being given a thumbs up by everybody especially my mother. Then, it transcended from cooking for my family to cooking for several persons.
    How? A friend of mine came back from work and was terribly hungry and he pleaded that I cook anything fast for him since he was famished. I thought of something fast, and then I decided to cook indomie. So since I had some vegetables, thus I garnished a fast dish. After few minutes of silently eating, he made a statement that has kept me going. He said “this dish is great, you can make some cool cash from it ooh”. After a while, I picked up the idea and went ahead to tell few people about my intention of doing a part-time job whenever I come back for semester breaks .It started with one, then two, three etc. till I can cook for not less than five persons a day. It helped me make “cool cash” as my friend called it. I frequently engaged in that business whenever I come back for semester break and since then it have been helping me raise a significant amount of money that I usually save which helps to solve one problem or the other back in school, thus minimizing expenses for my parents. I strongly believe that in the next five (5) years, this single act of mine will grow from just being a small eatery to being something bigger, that will not only help to create well for me but It will also help to create well for other people through creating job opportunities especially now that the nation is moving to the next.

    INTRODUCTION
    Talent is a set of skills possessed by an individuals, it can be defined as the natural ability to be good at something, talents can be in born and at the same time acquired.one of the major reason why there is high rate of poverty in Nigeria is as a result of underutilization of individual talents, Nigerians have focused basically on education, the idea in Nigeria is that if you are not educated you cannot be successfully, but that thinking is fallacious in nature because some rich individual in the world are actually not educated, for example the famous footballer Cristiano Ronaldo was not educated and instead of being educated he choose to develop his talent(football) and today he is one of the richest footballer in the whole world.
    The chief executive officer of FACEBOOK mark Zuckerberg drop out from school to pursue his talents and today he has the world at his feet, being educated does not mean we should not pursue our talent, being educated and at the same time pursuing our talents can help to reduce poverty in Nigeria.
    My in-born talents was playing of football, but I Know if I pursue this talent I will not benefit from it because of the belief system of we Nigerians, so I had to acquire a new skill ‘EVENT DECORATION AND MANAGEMENT’’. This was a skill I had so much passion in doing and it has been a source of income to me.

    HOW TO DEVELOP MY TALENT
    1.I have to recognize my talent: don’t underestimate or overestimate your talent, take time to examine what has made you successful in the past and what your career aspiration are for the future.
    2. I have to Nurture and develop my talent: for me to be able to develop my talent I have to look for opportunity that will add more depth and knowledge to my talent.
    3.If I also want to develop my talent I have to always express my talent, if not
    with time I will lose the talent/skill
    4.Do the work and be optimistic. The only thing that matters is your work. This is something I had to learn the hard way, being someone who’s always trying to see the bigger picture and navigate within what I believe is the framework of what I’m doing. It’s also a good thing, but if we’re not careful we can get caught up with everything in that framework except that which is our actual skill. Practicing my skill at times seems very difficult now since am still a student, but I always try to develop my skill everyday by acquiring more knowledge online and I always hope for the best.
    HOW CAN I USE THIS SKILL TO GET OUT OF POVERTY?
    Well I intend to start up a business that will be centered majorly on event decoration and Management, also there will be a segment of the business that will be for those that intend to learn this skill, the business will also encompasses trading on different kinds of decoration material, in these way i will be independent and earn income from any contract awarded to me by my clients, and in other to achieve these I need to start now and I thank God It has been a source of income to me in school. Well considering the economic situation of Nigeria one has to finds something doing if one wants to live a fulfilled life irrespective of the economic hardship in the country.

    MY TALENT/SKILL AND HOW I HOPE TO USE IT TO CREATE WEALTH AND DEVELOP THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY WITHIN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS (SHORT TERM) AS WELL AS WITHIN THE NEXT TEN YEARS (LONG TERM).
    Sometime we don’t understand the different of talent and skill. Talent is an inborn ability or natural aptitude of a person which is often hidden and needs recognition. It means, being good in a certain activity, without actually learning or acquiring it. Unlike skill, which is a learnt ability, and it can be developed in someone if he/she put his time and efforts in it. The efforts need to be voluntary, systematic and sustained, to acquire a skill and satisfactorily undertake various tasks and activities. Ever since I was little I have always love sports especially football which is actually my talent its inborn in me that I can’t stay in a day without football. For me, the skill I have developed so far is basically on computer which is graphic designs.
    Now how do I us this talent/skills I have developed and how do I intend to develop my talent and skill to create wealth within the next five years (short Term)?
    I have actually been using my talent/skill every since I was a kid, I play football, I design for people using Coreldraw, Photoshop, and some other graphics design software which has always been generating income for me. How I intend to develop my talent/skill is by acquiring more in addition to the ones in me so as to be more professional. In the next five years I intend to partition a program whereby I teach does who intend to customize their sports jersey themselves using graphics and with this wealth is created through registration and other which will add value to the economy.
    How do I us this talent/skills I have developed and how do I intend to develop my talent and skill to create wealth within the next Ten years (Long Term)?
    In the next ten years, with the platform i have that links sports and graphics together through the collaboration of firms and industries, locally or internationally I will be able to actualize my dreams (a dream come through) creating wealth for me and the economy as whole.

    DISCUSS YOUR TALENTS AND DEVELOPED SKILLS AND YOU INTEND O CREATE WEALTH WITH YOUR SKILLS IN THE MEDIUM AND LONG TERM

    Talents are developed but skills are acquired. My talents are distinct from my skills as differentiated below:
    Talents- drumming and teaching
    Skills- tailoring.

    TALENTS.
    Drumming.
    I started drumming at the age of five. This was the first talent that I realized and I knew of it at a very early stage. I acknowledge that such gift was given to me by God Almighty. For that reason, my talent was used to serve Him playing in churches. I started with my home church and then to other churches.
    With further development and improvement, I have been opportune to play in social occasions like weddings, burials, parties and other programs (even ministrations), some of which are financially rewarding.
    Teaching
    This is another generous gift from God to me. This talent however, was realized later than the former (drumming). To be precise, I discovered my teaching abilities when I was in high school. On finding out, I had to harness and develop it with the help of God. And this, I did by conducting private tutorials for both my juniors and my contemporaries.
    Lately, during the ASUU strike that lasted for over three months, I got a job to teach Jambites in a lesson center. I taught them on Economics and Mathematics and I was being paid weekly.

    SKILLS
    Tailoring
    This, unlike the other two talents discussed above, was acquired through learning. I ventured into learning the skill of tailoring last year also, during the strike.
    Although I am still an apprentice and have not perfected the skill, there are some things that I have been able to do on the course of my apprenticeship. However, the training is meant to last for two years, hopefully, by then, I must have gone a long way in skill of tailoring.

    HOW TO CREATE WEALTH WITH MY TALENTS AND SKILLS
    First, on the path of drumming (although I am already making some money out of it), I intend to join a music crew. This will help me to develop even more and it will present more opportunities to perform in concerts and other occasions that come with some monetary reward. This I could be doing as a part-time job.
    On the path of teaching, after my graduation and probably after my NYSC, I intend to start up by teaching in a high school. The job can be obtained with my B.sc certificate. After I have worked for some time, I will go to do my master’s degree, I can now be able to apply for the job of a lecturer in universities.
    Finally, for tailoring, after I am done with my apprenticeship, my plan is to purchase a machine of my own and start to take up contracts. And on the long-run, have my own tailor’s shop, with my employees and apprentices.

    When I was a little girl, I thought my goal in life was to be a singer. I practiced in front of mirrors, learnt how to lip sync like my idols on TV and so many more. This went on for years until I told my parents that I wanted to be a musician when I grew up. They said NO. As simple as that. I was crushed. So, with tears in my heart, I decided to pour out my heart in my little diary. And I did so the next day, and the next and the day after that till it was a part of me. That was when I knew I had a passion: Writing. I was, and still am, a voracious reader, so it did not come as a surprise that I could write too. I could have so many ideas in my head and pen them down nicely. I figured that writing is my talent.
    Moreover, earlier this year, I started work at a restaurant to keep me handy during the long strike. I picked up so many skills in the process. I learnt how to bake so many things, cook intricacies, I even learned how to properly serve guests. They became my skills.

    Putting my skills and talent towards wealth creation is something I have always intended to do. Writing for bloggers, magazines, newspapers and such or even publishing a book is a good way to create wealth for myself. I could also start up a resturant or supply my food to other resturants. I could teach people on both writing and baking and this not only increases wealth, it instills knowledge in my students and making them more resourceful. With the boom of any of the aforementioned business options, I would surely have to employ people which in turn reduces poverty and unemployment.

    My Talents and Skills and how I Intend to Develop them to create well for Me in the Next Five(5) Years

    My talent is hair making and dressing, I never learnt it, but I am goodat it, but I intend learning more and improve in it after school. I want to own an hair dressing salon after school, then I'll deal in manicure and pedicure too. For now, while in school, since I felt hair dressing in school is not giving me time, I decided to start saving to repair my laptop, buy a fairly used printer and photocopying machine and start a little business in school, that is, helping people to do their assignments and term papers at cheaper rate, at least, two students per topic/ assignment, so as to make sure my customers know that I won't and can't write the same thing for the two, at the same time, I will be printing assignments and photocopying.
    Although, I went to a computer school immediately after my secondary school, and graduated with distinction in 'data processing and graphic designing', but I am lagging and have forgotten many things I learnt because after my computer school, I stopped training because as of then, I had no laptop or anything of such for more training. So I am starting with what concerns school activities. After school, if possible before I graduate, I'll be be printing business cards, wedding cards, fliers for adverts, making magazine, design books for birthday and so on. After school, I'll find a good environment and continue to improve in my busines. While improving in this, by God's Grace start a computer school and have another section for hair dressing school.
    I hope by improving in this and be truthful in what I do, in the next five(5) years, I'll not only have developed my skills, but help others develop theirs and have connections to well known people , for the females, become their personal hair dresser or for example, developed companies, I'll be designing and making their adverts, and have a partner who is a certified engineer in computer who will be the company's engineer and will be training others.
    These are my talents and how I intend developing them. Thank you sir

    DISCUSS HOW YOU CAN USE YOUR TALENT AND SKILL TO CREATE WEALTH TO SUSTAIN YOURSELF FROM NOW TO THE NEXT FIVE YEARS
    My talent and skill are teaching and baking, respectively. My knowledge of teaching describes it as the act of sharing of knowledge and experience, which is usually, organized with a discipline and more generally the provision of stimulus to the psychology and intellectual growth of a person by another person. Then for baking, I see it as the art of preparing desert like cake, meat pie, fish roll, to mention but a few.
    Underlining details of how I came about developing teaching talent; it all started when I was little. At that stage, I loved teaching, I turned our walls into chalk board, teaching myself alone at home, I used our chairs at home as my pupils and at the time; I developed passion in disciplining my playmate, but as at that stage, I found it hard to pass the message to people. After several observations from my uncle, he called me one afternoon, and said, “Julie, I think you will be a great teacher and anyone who lives under you will be exposed and enlightened more by your teaching and discipline skills and talent”. I laughed at his words and never put them to heart. But as time went on, uncle’s words became more alive in my heart.
    I applied for Economics when I wanted to sit for my first jamb, in the year 2016, but did not gain admission, and then I decided to follow my heart and see what teaching will yield me. As God will have it, I applied for Education Economics on my second UTME outing; Lo and behold, it was a miracle and I was admitted, with my name on the merit list. Truth be told, I am performing better than I was when I first begun, and I strongly belief that the experts in this faculty are also training us well.
    Stressing on the baking aspect; I learnt the skill from my final year roommate. Whenever she bakes, I stayed and watched her closely, wrote down the steps for baking, most of the time helped her with the stirring aspect of the baking. I also watch YouTube videos on baking and cooking skills regularly, to learn more designs in the arts, and today I can bake alone without anybody assisting me, though I am not yet a professional in the field but I hope to get to that level soon.
    Furthermore, they are several ways I intend making my teaching talent and baking skill a source of wealth to me. The steps that I intend to take to achieve this feat are emphasized below.
    First, I will create awareness for my baking skill through different platforms on the social media. For my teaching adventure, I will organize and make posters for summer holiday tutorials for kid in my area and also learn to be a teacher that makes a great difference.
    Secondly, I will get a small shop where I can sell to residents across the street. For the teaching aspect, I will apply for a teaching job at a school either as a part-time or full time worker, depending on my daily schedule at the time.
    In addition, I will get friends who have events like birthday parties, wedding parties, and name ceremonies so that I can display my skills in bakery. With this teaching talent and baking skill I can sustain myself for the next five years. And even if there are competitors outside, I will just have to make mine outstanding and unique in service, product quality and packaging, amongst others, in order to get to the top of the game.
    In conclusion, we must learn to develop our talents and skills so as to help create job for us instead of depending on the government.

    ASSIGNMENT
    Discuss the talent and skill that you have developed. How do you intend to develop this talent to create wealth for you and take you out of poverty (between now and five years)?
    ANSWER
    I discovered my talent in writing in my Junior Secondary School days. I would compose a story or an essay without stress anytime my English teacher asked us to do so in tests, assignments or class exercise. I enjoyed doing it and it seems like I never ran out of ideas to write about.

    I took this talent to the next level when my English teacher suggested to me during my last days in Secondary school to write a book. I could remember looking at him in askance and self-doubt. However, I thought deeply about what he said and today, I have a book that’s almost ready for publication and I can say that I feel fulfilled anytime I fondle my pen with paper or when my fingers romance the keys on my laptop to produce an article.

    Secondly, I discovered only last year that I have this talent of motivating or stirring positive vibes in people. I found out from so many of my friends and even elders that I could make someone feel as though they could move Mount Kilimanjaro with their little finger with my choice of words. As it is now, I’m happy I looked closely into what they told me and decided to maximize that talent too. In a nutshell, I am also a Motivational/Public Speaker.

    Currently, I’ve began to make conscious steps or efforts to use these talents to escape poverty for as long as my family and I live.

    Firstly, precisely last year, I launched a page on Facebook called Jubilee’s Pen. There, I publish articles written by me ranging from short stories, poems, didactic (motivational reads) to even motivational videos. I use my handle on Instagram to also post my videos.

    Furthermore, I joined Groups and/or Communities on Facebook and Instagram so I can develop my talents and publish my works in them too. As a result, I’m privileged to write on the blog of the best Blogger in Taraba state, Rhapsodi Affos Blog and Success Tonics Blog. I recently bought a Policy Analysis and Research Group (PARG) membership form to broaden my knowledge in my field of study and also help me become a good public speaker. I also belong to a Writer’s Community on Campus where I physically meet with writers like me, unlike on the social media where I don’t see my associates in the field, thereby refining my talents.

    It’s my dream to soon launch a Community Forum on Facebook and Instagram where I can give young and intelligent writers and entrepreneurs the opportunity to show the world what they’re good at. I intend to build and grow my tribe using the social media too. Also, I avail myself for any program no matter how small that will warrant the assembly of young, erudite minds and in the process seek for an opportunity that will get me to speak or motivate them. By so doing, I create an awareness in people in regards to what I do.
    Moreover through my videos, I share my personal experiences with people and give them every reason to hold on to the fact that tomorrow would be better than today for them. I intend to avail myself as a ladder for them to climb up to the top where they belong.

    Conclusively, given my fans on social media and physically, I could strike business deals to speak in public and get to publish my forthcoming books without the faintest doubt about selling big. I hope to portray the best of me to the world, monetize my talents and build a mighty fort against poverty and its auspices for as long as live. I strongly believe that with consistency as a watchword, hard work and discipline, I’ll get to the top and guide others alike in the cause of their peregrination to the top.

    What is my talent and skill?
    Before I start to say what my talent is, I will like to say what talent means. What is talent? According to oxford advanced learner`s dictionary “a natural ability to do something well” so talent is inborn. A talent is simply those features or characteristic, an ability or natural capacity or potential that we have, which may range from our creativity or intellect or social skills to our athletic abilities.
    What is not talent? Talent is not something acquired or learnt from someone or institution like school or anything that was taught to you at university. Talent is just like naturally seeds that is in us at birth, but the question is how can we know our talent talk less of developing them to skills that will help in a beneficial way in future? The aim is not on that aspect rather I will discuss
     My talent
     How I discovered it
     How I will develop it to my skill
    My talent is “management” especially peoples problem, always finding a solution to a difficult situation or problem (there is always away out) very good in advising.
     How I discovered it
    There is this zeal in me to always find or try to find solution to people’s problem, always looking at my friends’ faces and trying to know what their problem is, even when it requires money or otherwise, I don’t care. Sometime I have to leave every other things am doing just to solve that particular. I always feel happy when I find a way out.
    I didn’t discover this not until (2005) when I become the president of altar boys association of St Anthony`s station in vice president at the parish level (St Michael parish Imilke) at the Age of 13years; because of my efficient they retained me in that office for 10years (i.e. when I got admission in 2015).
    Another instances was in the year (2012) I was made the president of catholic youth men organization (CYMO) at the same station, and in (2014) I became the president of catholic youth men organization (CYMO) at parish level. The funny part of it is that in most position I have ever occupied there was on election, they will always say “manager you are our president” which is me, when I try to say no, they will say “you can do it”. Then I will being to wonder “what have I done
    To this people that they always gave the most tasking position without minding the current position am occupying”.
    Another significant was when I was in secondary school, my peers then gave me a name “manager” they will always run to me for advice or help whenever they are in trouble. I believe they saw something in me that is special which make they to give me that name.
     How I will develop it to my skill
    The next thing is how can I develop this talent into skills so that I can fetch me money in future? This human managerial and solution finding talent that I have, I will develop it into a skills by modifying or extending it to Data management or Analyst skill. This is because human beings and data or variables behave in the same manner, both of them varies from time to time. When I acquire this skill I solving and providing solutions for researchers, firms and organization both private and public enterprise. Secondly I will also open a business problem solving company which firms and organisation will subscribing to and which they will in return I will be paid for my services.
    In view of dream I have acquired some skills that will effectively enhance my data management skills by learning of it tools like
    • Microsoft word
    • Microsoft excel
    • Microsoft Access
    • E-views
    • SPSS
    • Currently on R and R-studio

    My identified talent are teaching and singing. Since I was small I have loved singing, and I do enjoy good gospel singers like Don moen, brother Cornellus, Mary mackee e.t.c. those who use their voice to sing soul into the kingdom of God and edify saints. Because of the love and ability I have in singing I joined the children choir. I singing low alto which blends with any voice to give it a harmonious sound to the ear. With the help of my choir master then I can now sing from one octave to the other. From there I joined the youth choir, singing with and joy. And now in campus I have joined the choir in my fellowship.
    How I intend to develop this singing talent so that in next five years it will create wealth for me is this: knowing that being a vocalist alone may not yield much for me. I have engaged myself in instrumental class so that I can at least learn how to play three instruments, like Don meon who plays almost all the instrument. I could go into music industry, compose music, sing and wax it. I could be singing and playing instrument at the same time. With this I could create wealth for myself.
    Another talent of mine is teaching. Teaching has been my thing. Since my secondary school days I came to discover that I can teach my fellow students and they will understand it more than they did in class. And I also discovered that I enjoy doing that, and I’m also happy when I see students learning those things /subjects they generalized to be difficult. Difficult things being broken down to a point that even the dullest in class can understand. In fact that was the reason why I applied for education course, So that I can turn this talent into skill.
    How I intend turning this talent into wealth for me in the next five years is this, when I leave the university, I’m going to open a lesson centre for students in secondary school and even primary pupils. I did this before I got admissions but it was mainly for primary school pupils. Parents want their children to be the best in class so they enroll them in extra lessons. Those children that find it difficult to understand, I will find a way to break the subject to the point that they could understand. I could teach them using mnemonics, acronyms or evening formulating songs with some of the difficult term that seems difficult to memories. As the numbers of the children go I could turn it into a school. With this I think I could create wealth from this teaching talent. Not only that I would also be happy seeing students that I have taught doing well academically. That the joy of teaching and teachers in general.
    Skills could also be acquired and developed to create wealth for me in five years time .sowing is one of the skill I love and have passion for. That is why I went for it. During this ASU strike, I went to learn how to sow female dress. Knowing that clothing is one of the essential needs of life. In the next five I would have acquired the skill perfectly to enable me bring out designs and style for me and people. Naturally women love clothing and fashion. So I will be creating new styles and design for them. With this I could create wealth for myself in next five years

    TOPIC: Discuss your talent and your skill and how do you intend to develop your talent and your skill to create wealth.
    First and foremost, let’s discuss the meaning of talent and skills. Talent is simply a natural ability which someone has, whereas skills is the knowledge and capacity to do something quite well. It’s not a secret that we humans are naturally gifted in one way or the other and these talents have set a good way for many.
    Talents engender good skill but this doesn’t mean that good skills cannot be developed without talent. Talent and skill has greatly made a lot of people very wealthy. All over the world, we can see footballers, musicians, web developers, barbers, tailors and many other artisans who are unarguably rich because of their talent and skills. Now, we are going to discuss my own talent and skills and how I intend to develop them to create wealth.
    Ever since I was a child, I had a great passion for music and the keyboard instrument. Till this moment, I’m a good singer and also a song writer. I can also boldly say that I can play the keyboard to some great level. To me, I think I’m musically talented because I always drive joy in my musical disposition. Some of my songs, I do sell them to potential singers but I perform some in the studio and when they’re released, I send the download link to my friends and other website managers to help create awareness for my career. During the holiday, I attend a music lesson in my area to help me become more proficient in keyboard playing.
    Permit me to tell you that I play the keyboard for people on ceremonies like burial, weddings and other big events. I’m a member of a band group in Agulueri called the MOZART CREW.
    Some years ago,mum taught me the art of bakery.She makes confectionaries like cake,chinchin,meatpie etc.During those periods,she made sure I paid attention to her and learn the whole process involved in baking.We bake cakes,fry chin chin and supply them to people in large quantities.As at this moment,I’m a skillful baker and I am well convinced that this skill will help me to a great extent to shun poverty in the future.I’m planning to establish a big bakery business where I will employ a good number of skillful bakers as well.Being the CEO of the business and a good baker,I will use my special formular to produce my own confectionaries in large quantities with the help of my workers.
    This as well will not avert my attention from my musical venture.I hope to have a studio of my own where I will use my knowledge of the keyboard and with the help of other instrumentalists to produce harmonious musical beats for artists.I will not fail to acknowledge the fact that all these establishments needs a huge capital but the idea is the most important thing because a sponsor can up anytime or even a loan from the bank is not a bad idea.
    With these stipulated ideas,I hope to circumvent poverty now and in the future and also help build the GDP of the nation.

    TALENT
    Talent is God given. Talent is not skill. A skill is developed by practicing but talent is inborn. The question is how do we identify our various talents and what do we achieve with these talents when we discover them? Mind you, every human is born with a talent but not every human discover their talents before they die!
    I’m a beautiful bold black girl, one who is blessed to have discovered her talent. Please join me as I unfold my talents and how I intend to make good use of it and create wealth while leaving a positive impact as well.
    I believe talent is not limited. Otherwise, why would one individual be a singer, writer, actor, public influencer and name it all at once. Well so far in almost my 20 years of living, I’ve discovered a few of my talents & skills and still hope to discover more. They are:
    1. Content creator (script writing)
    2. Acting
    3. Public speaking
    4. Ability to impart knowledge
    5. A very good host (for social gatherings)
    MEDUIM TERM:
    In the medium term, I write my scripts with the little knowledge I get from the internet. Recently I just completed and sold a script for some cool cash. I can’t go into acting right now because of my agreement with my mum not to let my flare for acting interfere with my studies. Nevertheless, I still seize any opportunity I get to join in any social groups in school for acting (at church, social gatherings or departmental celebrations) just so I can keep developing my acting skills in preparations for my future as the field is quite competitive. I’ve hosted a couple of shows as well and done a few public speaking alongside my studies and I get paid really well for my services rendered. Being able to educate someone and impart knowledge is a skill you have to develop. That is why sometimes you hear people say, “I know it but I don’t know how to explain it to you or make you understand.” I don’t intend using this skill to create wealth, rather I intend to use it to help and pass necessary information where and when needed or assist a classmate to understand certain courses that they find difficult to comprehend. Better still, join an N.G.O and help educate people across globes.
    LONG TERM:
    Meanwhile, in the long term, I intend to get a professional certification in acting, content creating and movie production soon as I’m done with my first degree. I will love to combine my career life with my passion for entertainment. After I’m settled in the entertainment industry, I’ll ‘love’ to make a movie that will sweep the viewers off their feet which will in turn generate a whole lot of revenue for me that will be reinvested back into my production to yield larger profits. Obviously, in the long run my market value as an individual would have gone up meaning I get paid higher for any form of service I render. I intend to make more public appearances and host more shows only that this time it will be as a celebrity and not as a regular student of economics department, UNN.
    I’m very passionate about culture and have future plans of using my production platform to bring out the various wonderful cultures in Nigeria, particularly the Igbo culture. I will love to use my movies to educate the younger generations in the appreciation of one’s culture and why culture is really a way of life. Lastly I intend to use my influence as a celebrity to reach out to more people and affect more lives. A good a name they say is better than ten million in an account? Thank You.

    A skill is the capability to carry out a task efficiently and effectively with a given amount of time, energy or both while, talents are natural abilities that becomes a skill when properly developed and harnessed. Skills acquisition are needed for individual and national development. Borrowing from Walter Rodney (1972:1) definition of development as "increased skill and capacity, greater freedom, creativity, self-discipline, responsibility and material well-being", it is necessary to distinguish between hard and soft skills. Both skill sets are complementary and relevant to the overall development of an individual. Hard skills are specific knowledge and abilities that are learned through education or training. Examples include ICT skills, artisanship etc. Soft skills on the other hand are people skills that derives from personality traits and they are usually not quantifiable unlike hard skills. Examples include communication skills, emotional quotient etc.
    I believe talent is not limited. Otherwise, why would one individual be a singer, writer, actor, public influencer and name it all at once. Well so far in almost my 24 years of living, I’ve discovered a few of my talents & skills and still hope to discover more. They are:
    1. Playing football
    2. Graphics design
    3. Musical rapping

    LONGTERM
    To create wealth with this talent, I intend to enrol myself in a football academy where I can garner the art of playing professional football, as well as the knowledge of running a professional academy efficiently and successfully. While attending the football academy, I will partake in tournaments which results in stipends when our team wins. Afterwards, I will establish a fully functioning football academy for kids, teenagers, and adults to register for a fee and be trained, while I make money for myself. Discovered my talent of graphics design when I was secondary school, as I realised that I could draw whatever I saw.

    LONGTERM
    My talent for rapping musically was discovered early in secondary school. For now, I rap in my leisure time. To enable me improve and showcase my talent of rapping, I intend to engage myself with entertainment events of all kinds, ranging from religious (church), social, academic, etc. I am aware that some people might want free services, for the fact that I am an unknown artist, I will leverage on every opportunity since these people will be of great value to me in my long-term project. Also, I will look for avenues to positively impart my talent to other younger ones, giving rapping as skills to them, to enable them improve their poetic skills, or enhance their rapping talents. A class for parents to enrol their children during holidays, to improve their rapping and poetic talents shall be established. Through this, I will make money for myself.
    In conclusion, talent and skill cannot be taken away from the bearer, except he or she chooses to share it, by teaching another person, or people. Final conclusion to all that I have outlined, I intend to establish a Centre for talent harnessing and skill acquisition, where individuals can enrol themselves or their children, the government can enroll their staff, politicians, religious leaders can also enroll their members for a fee, to acquire any skill, or harness an already existing talent in them, thereby creating wealth for myself.

    TOPIC : Discuss your Talent and your skills and how do you intend to develop them to create wealth for you and take you out of poverty in the next 5 – 10 years.

    According to Merriam Webster,talent can be defined as a special often athletic, creative, or artistic aptitude ( an aptitude means a component of a competence to do a certain kind of work at a certain level.)
    While a skill is the ability to carry out a task with determined results often with a given amount of time, energy or both.
    Talents are labeled gifts and i would state the type of talents and skills i have discovered so far would be:
    • Drawing/Graphics designing
    • Listening
    I'm going to talk about “ Listening ” i have been told i am a good listener cause in a group of 5 people i rather not speak but instead listen to what they have to say. Listening is the key to all effective communication. Without the ability to listen effectively, messages are easily misunderstood. I intend to use this skill to have a major impact on the effectiveness of my job and also on the quality of my relationship with others. By becoming a good listener, i can improve my productivity, as well as my ability to influence, persuade and negotiate and all these are required if one really wants to escape poverty and acquire wealth.
    Here are five (5) Key techniques one can use to develop his/her active listening skills:
    • pay attention
    • Show that you're listening
    • Provide feedback
    • Deter Judgement
    • Respond appropriately.
    The reward for being is good listener is definitely going to pay off in the next 5 years all one has to do is utilize his talents and listen well. Thank you

    Question
    Write your talent and the skills you have learnt, and how do you intend to develop your talent and skills to create wealth for you and take you out of poverty between now till five years and from five years to ten years.
    Answer
    The talent given to me by God is being jovial and easy to convince someone, and the skill I have learnt so far is how to cook.
    My talent can be developed by moving into advertisement and also into politics, and the skills I have learnt can be developed through opening of standard restaurant and catering.
    In terms of convincing, my talent can take me out of poverty if I enter into politics, lets say PDP.
    They said someone cannot make it into politics if he or she doesn’t have money, but I am not in support of that, because with the talent I have, I will have to attach myself to a politician that is coming out for something, lets say he is from the same ward with me, I would help him set up good points for his campaign, looking at the area he is trying to come out for, I will try to fish out the problems happening around where he is trying to come out, then try and educate the public on the solution to the problems.
    With this, my talent can make me wealthy at long run if my politician later wins, I will own a high position for doing a work well done, when working and attending several political meetings, I will try to have the money allocated to my ward and use it to develop my ward, so that at long run if I try coming out for something, I would get more votes from my people because they will use what I have done in the past administration to vote for me and this would make me a rich and well known politician in 4years time, after 4years and my tenure is over, I would go for a higher political position, and will try to convince them to vote for me, meanwhile before I go for the next level, I will love to do so many projects like Road (working on the road if not good), Market (renovating the market buildings if they are bad), Education (Providing standard and quality education and lower price for the people so as to reduce illiteracy), Hall meeting (Building or renovating hall meeting for the village) e.t.c that will convince people to vote for me when moving to the next level.
    My cooking skill can make me wealthy if I set up a good restaurant, I will employ people that can cook but not as good as me, then educate them on my pattern of cooking, so that even if I am not around the taste of the food remains the same.
    I can also open a catering, and will be earning from there.

    Topic: How my talent and skill will bring money for me in both short and long terms.
    WRITING:
    I was in SSS3 when I started writing again. It was different from all the Simbi's wicked mother tales I was accustomed to.
    Fast forward to gaining admission and becoming more active on social media, I discovered blogging. I started nnewrites.blogspot.com in 2016 even before the University demanded that we all get blogs.
    Writing has been an avenue to pour out my heart and recently, a means to make a living. The world is evolving every minute, social media is gaining ground and companies have been on the lookout for content creators and writers.
    Writing has been able to bring in little cash, because I offer services such as content creation and creative writing for brands looking to garner customers. Through the art of story telling, customers have gotten interested in what a brand has to offer. In that way, writing as a talent is bringing in cash for me.
    LONG TERM WEALTH FOR WRITING:
    I hope to own a personal and lifestyle magazine/blog in a few years. It will be an avenue to keep lending my voice to societal issues, bringing in profit to me through sales of the magazine and brand collaborations, and also create employment opportunities because one person alone cannot produce a magazine. So, these are all the ways writing can create wealth for me.
    EDITING AND CREATING GRAPHICS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA:
    I like to edit landscape and natural pictures, and of recent I've started looking into retouching potraits. Now editing can bring me money in the short term because I teach people how to edit for just a little money, and also selling presets that I've developed can bring in a little wealth.
    In developing long term wealth, I don't exactly see myself as becoming a full time photographer, but I can definitely get into product photography for brands and get paid for it.
    As for graphics, am not a full fledged designer, but I can create visual content for social media pages and small designs for social media pages ( I create all graphics and designs I use for my blog and social media pages) and blogs and I can get paid to do that, hence short term wealth creation.

    Topic: Getting out of Poverty through Talent Usage and Skill Acquisition

    Talent is an oft-used word, and when it’s evoked we often nod in agreement that we know what someone means. In many cases, it might be a synonym for “intelligence” or in other domains it might mean “athleticism.” You can get away without pinpointing a precise definition for talent unless you are a scientist that is trying to explain performance. Then you want to know what precisely differentiates a world-class athlete, chess grandmaster, or anyone else at the pinnacle of their field.
    On the other hand skill is the ability to carry out a task with determined results often within a given amount of time, energy, or both. Skills can often be divided into domain-general and domain-specific skills. For example, in the domain of work, some general skills would include time management, teamwork and leadership, self-motivation and others, whereas domain-specific skills would be used only for a certain job. Skill usually requires certain environmental stimuli and situations to assess the level of skill being shown and used.
    My Talent
    In one way or the other I believe that every being on this earth has a special gift or talent inside of them. Two different individuals can have similar talent but there should be something unique. In the movie industry today there are so many actors and actresses. They all have the same talent when it comes to acting but believe me when I say you can't compareMr ibu and Pete edochie. Mr ibu is very good when it comes to comic movies and Pete edochie is very good in the filed of tragic movies. But they are both actors in their own unique ways.

  46. I discovered my talent at the age of 15 when I was in secondary school. I was asked to play a role on a stage as a father of eight girls and a boy. I am proud to say my special gifted talent is acting in the field of comedy and painting
    My skills
    After I discovered my talent I also got to know that I had passion for photography and videos coverage, already I am a member of media crew in Anglican dioceses of Nsukka. I joined the group because I believe that apart from my little knowledge and handling cameras I still have a lot to learn from my team.
    How I can create wealth and get out of poverty with these talent and skills
    First and foremost I will have to seek GOD Almighty.
    According to jubilee s pen: she stated that you should try to impress people with your talent and skills and not yourself. You can't put food on your table if people are not amazed with what you are doing.
    Photography is much more than the little pictures we use to capture with our mobile phones and micro cameras. Photography is much more than snapping pictures after all everyone can take pictures. But beyond taking just ordinary pictures, Photography is an Art! And I believe I have my own unique way of taking picture and designing picture that is difference from others.
    There are Three different ways in my own opinion i can work as a photographer and any one of them is very viable. If I can combine all the three, that would be even better. I will embrace the whole aspects of Photography and see how it goes.
    The three categories of photography.
    Studio Photographer – The way studio photographer works is Open a studio and equip it with all the studio gadgets, then wait for customers to come for photo shoot or portraiture. Types of people that patronizes photo studios includes Models, Customers who wants to take personal photos, and those that needs passport photographs.

  47. Event Photographer – This is the Photographer who specializes in covering events such as: Weddings, Anniversaries, Luncheon, Burial Ceremonies, Carnivals, Sporting Events, etc. They also shoot commercial photographs for adverts and productions. Studio equipments may not be necessary except Hi-Tech Cameras, Laptop, and Lenses.
    Travel Photographer – This is the type of Photographer I called ‘Content Photographers’ They go about capturing places, beautiful land scape, events, people, and nature. Travel Photographer basically sells photographs to would be users rather than charge money to take photographs. With these category of photography you can create a wallpaper app. Showing the beauty of nature and income can generate through that app.
    And lastly though not included in the three category
    UNN photographer – in recent time I noticed that unn student mostly girls love taking pictures even when it is not necessary. Once its their birthday they must take pictures. When their friend sees how beautiful she appears on the picture they ll ask who took these pictures.
    The Photography Equipments I Will Need
    Studio lights, Memory cards, Light modifiers, Soft boxes, Umbrellas, Tripods, Reflectors , Background supports systems, Studio Room.
    The above mentioned is what I have in mind to go into after my education. I believe my field in educational level can help me manage these plans and also invest when its necessary. Apart from photography, acting can also come in handy in the sense that I can act a short clip and post online depending on what I’m able to deliver to the people I can get myself into the movie industry. With these I can say creating wealth for myself and with GOD by my side escaping poverty won’t be a thing to worry about.

    My talent and Skills and How I intend to use the to create wealth within the short and long-term.
    What I consider to be my talent is teaching, it is what I have passion for. My skills however include dressmaking, latch hook(rug making), tapestry,cross stitch.
    Since I love to teach others, share my knowledge and experiences with them and watch them become the best they can be I think the best way to do this while earning my keep is to open an arts and crafts academy are institution or school. People who are interested in learning will then enroll and develop themselves while I earn my income.
    Also, taking time into consideration, people will probably not have all day to learn so I think that it would be best to fix the classes at each individual's convenience such that each person would decide when is convenient for them. Also, online classes will be part of the curriculum for those who do not have time or who live too far away to make it the the academy.
    Children's classes also for children who parents want to engage their children during the summer holidays when school is not in session. This will bring in extra income and also help develop children who will be useful for the up-building of the country through generation of revenue.

    ASSIGNMENT: Discuss your talent and the skill you have acquired. How you intend to develop your talent and your skills to create wealth for you and take you out of poverty.

    My talent as a matter of fact, I am yet to discover my talent though I have developed couple of skills within the past few years.
    • The skill of Dstv, startimes etc decoder installations and
    • The skill of painting (housing).

    During my younger ages, I was still learning the skill of decoder installation before I then got admitted into the higher institutions. Meanwhile, it constrained and retarded my continuity with the work because of the distance of my school from my master whom am still learning from. I hoped to continue during breaks but my master relocated. I then started going for painting work with my friend who has already developed the skill from his father. So I now developed more on painting as I had much time to learn and get used to it.
    I developed from involving only in domestic painting to industrial painting, where more work and expertise is required and most importantly, I want to develop more on production of the paint itself as well as painting which would create more income and wealth and hence help in solving my basic needs and wants which will alleviate poverty in my live.

    DISCUSS YOUR TALENT AND THE SKILLS YOU HAVE DEVELOPED AND HOW DO YOU INTEND TO DEVELOP YOUR TALENT AND SKILLS TO CREATE WEALTH FOR YOU AND TO TAKE YOU OUT OF POVERTY IN THE MEDIUM AND LONG TERM.
    DISCUSSION
    A talent is something we do naturally. Think back to your childhood. What did you just love to do? What did you do that required little thought?
    A skill is something that we learn. Skills are developed. You might attend training to learn a skill. You can master a skill such that it appears to be a talent.
    Every person possesses certain skills and talent that makes us different from others. We often use the term talent and skill interchangeably, without knowing the fact that these are different from one another. Talent is an inborn ability. It means, being good, in a certain activity, without, actually learning our acquiring it. Unlike talent, skills are learnt abilities, and they can be developed in some one if he or she puts his or her time and effort in it.
    MY TALENT
    I am a singer. And I would like to tell you a personal story about myself. I grew up in a secondary school environment in eastern Nigeria. My mother said that I started singing at the age of three, although I think five is probably close to the truth. So I was an early singer, and what I sang were rap songs.
    I was also an early song writer, and when I began to write, at about the age of ten, songs in pencil that my mother was obliged to read, I wrote exactly the kinds of songs I was singing. I have always desired to be a singer and a song writer in future, in the entertainment industry.
    I have written about 40 rap songs, I sold two of my songs to a well-known singer and also a song-writer in Lagos. After going through my work, he told me how talented I was, he encouraged me to keep moving and that I will go far in life. In the next two months, I will be singing my new song (7177 LED, THE DANGER OF THE SINGLE STORY) with the little money I saved from my song-writing.
    MY SKILLS
    I am skilled programmer. Before I got admission into the university, I decided to learn programming for a year and eight months. I was so determined to acquire this skills, though it wasn’t easy but God Almighty has been faithful. Now I am almost at expert level.
    I intend to develop my song writing talent by dealing with the original and fanatic concepts, being able to understand the structure within sequences and also to develop a realistic situation. With all these, in the next four to seven years, I might be seen as a global rap artist in the entertainment industry. I am determined to devote time to sing more songs and write more songs which will make me well to do. When I graduate, I will open a very big computer training school, I will modernize it to a high level, and employ workers in order to render a perfect service to my customers and to create wealth and opt out of poverty.
    This is all because “To whom much is given, much is expected”.

    A skill is the capability to carry out a task efficiently and effectively with a given amount of time, energy or both while, talents are natural abilities that becomes a skill when properly developed and harnessed. Skills acquisition are needed for individual and national development. Borrowing from Walter Rodney (1972:1) definition of development as "increased skill and capacity, greater freedom, creativity, self-discipline, responsibility and material well-being", it is necessary to distinguish between hard and soft skills. Both skill sets are complementary and relevant to the overall development of an individual. Hard skills are specific knowledge and abilities that are learned through education or training. Examples include ICT skills, artisanship etc. Soft skills on the other hand are people skills that derives from personality traits and they are usually not quantifiable unlike hard skills. Examples include communication skills, emotional quotient etc.
    Right from my little age, I have always had passion for teaching. Even when I was under the age of 6-8, I would gather all the children in the compound even those older than my age and teach them what I learnt in school.
    Even in my teen age, I was called and tagged “Teacher”
    I left my parents’ house to stay with my aunt, still yet I kept doing my thing (my talent). I would gather kids from the next compound and teach them things that I learnt. Therefore, after my WAEC and JAMB, waiting for past POSTUTME form, I applied for teaching in school not too far from my locality. I was paid and through that, I was able to save for my up keep. Teaching has always been a good experience for me, I made the students understand things their previous teacher could not teach them, I was love by parents and the proprietors who showered me with gifts while leaving the school after gaining admission.
    Another skill I have is marketing; I can market any good as far as it is what people can buy. I have worked with Daraju Company i.e makers of Mymy products. I have also worked with kamisafe i.e members of rechargeable lights and fan. I have also marketed for happy beddings so, together with my knowledge about economics; marketing has never been a problem to me.
    My talents is drumming. However, it is always strange hearing about girls who drum. Yes! It is my talents and I love it. I have drummed in churches before and was graced with that.
    God willing and since there is elbow room for continuous improvement, In my skills and talents I intend to develop them to the fullest as i hope to pursue a career in Economics department AMEN!!!

    MY TALENT AND HOW I INTEND TO MAKE MONEY INCOME WITH IT IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.

    By the special grace of God, over the years I have had a deep interest in things regarding music and fictional writing. At times, I would sit alone and compose songs which are mainly to glorify God and I would also busy myself by writing stories, with this I can easily say that by talents include; composing songs, singing and making up fictional stories all to the glory of God.

    And how I intend to produce income with these talents of mine by the special grace of God, well currently, I am part of a forum for young aspiring writers called Project Nigeria Book club. The main objective of this forum is to help upcoming and aspiring writers to meet their full potential, they provide various publishing contracts to help us, the aspiring writers as well as lectures in which they lecture us on how to make our writing better and by Gods grace, I have submitted my first manuscript to a publishing site.
    As for my singing, I have produced two songs from last year to now and I am currently working on promoting them. I can’t say I have a plan for the next five years, all I can say is that I have a plan now and I’m working towards it and I really hope and pray to God everyday that all my efforts would not be in vain.

    Thank you sir, for this opportunity.

    Assignment:
    A person’s talent, to me, has to do with what someone has flare for or derive some sort of special joy in doing or also something that an individual was born with and he or she can easily do it, But according to the oxford learner’s dictionary, talent is the natural ability of someone to do something well. People have talents in different areas and fields of life, examples are; football, singing, dancing, creative imagery, having business ideas, motivational speeches and countless others.
    I believe I have a natural ability to develop a business idea well, it might also be an innovation on a business that has already existed, I have done that to my dad’s business for example, I’m a core believer of the fact that women should brace-up, because we are that cause of poverty in the society, you made this illustration when you stated in your slide that “the face of poverty is female” I believe that women are the reason for the alarming rate of poverty worldwide, if you notice women don’t work hard as much as men do, they don’t see the urgency in making it in life as much as men do, because they believe marriage is the compensation of their failures in life and women who decide to be better actually look absurd because it is not a norm and if you advocate for women to work hard, they tag you a “feminist”. However I believe I have the natural ability to motivate women to be better, I speak to young ladies especially in the words of my mentor Mrs. Chimamanda Adichie, telling them not to shrink or make themselves smaller, there’s no crime in being successful and aiming as high as possible.
    I’ve always wanted to be an industrialist, I want to own a conglomerate, I want to own a nylon producing factory, I noticed that the demand for nylon bags is almost inexhaustible, its basically used almost every day, if not every day and it has no social class barrier, that is to say both the rich and poor make use of nylon bags, more so, the capital to start up the business can be affordable, aside that, I also want to own a water production factory, all these I just listed are basically essentials, I also want to delve into agriculture, a country can basically not do without agriculture, neither can individual, food is essential for life and growth, everybody eats, drinks at least water and they also have to package these goods. I have attended various workshops organized by the department, especially the ones I could afford, example: the SE SF annual conference and our home coming, these great economists inspire me to be better, examples are: Dr. Mrs. Ifeome Stella Madueme, Dr. Mrs Ngozi Okonjo Iweala and various different business tycoons. “ We teach girls to shrink themselves and make themselves smaller, we say to girl, you can have ambition, but not too much, you should aim to be successful, because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage, I am expected to make my life choices, always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important, now marriage can be a source of love, joy and mutual support but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we do no teach boys the same, we raise girls to see each other as competitors, not for jobs or for accomplishment which I think might be a good thing, but for the attention of men, we teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are, FEMINIST: A person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes”

    The Identified Talent in Me and The Skills I Have Developed: How I Intend to Develop It to Create Well for Myself and Take Me Out of Poverty Between Now and Five Years (Short-Term and Long-Term)
     Talent is a natural aptitude or skill. (world English dictionary). It is also the skill that someone has to do something very well that people usually find ease in doing it perfectly. Talent is considered innate and natural.
     Skill in the other hand is an expertise, which is acquired but the person by learning. Skill is developed with practices.
    I have identified the ‘SEWING’ talent in me (female dresses to be precise), yes, how did I find this. While in secondary school I offered a course in home economics where we were taught on how to make dresses and I got to discover that the dresses I made after lesion periods goes a long way to challenge the one made by our teacher then, this encouraged my spirit in taking much attention in class especially when new designs of cloth were being taught by the teacher. Sometimes, before the teacher could finish describing how the dress will look like after the practical class, I have already created it in my mind and this enthusiasm and eagerness to bring those imaginations into realities kept pushing me to discover it as my talent. However, after series of competitions in the class my dress always comes out as “THE BEST AMONG ALL” I see all different styles of female dresses as something appreciating and I always tries taking my time to try new styles before the next tutorial. I do the jobs most times(sewing) with ease although is time consuming but for the fact that I derives joy in doing it and the satisfactions I gets from my customer’s compliments encourages me to always try more. At the end of my stay in school, I come up being the best designer in that year and that’s how I got the name “THE MOST TALENTED FEMALE DESIGNER OF THE YEAR. Throughout my stay at home in preparing for admission into higher institutions, I opened a small dress making company where I spends most of my leisure time trying new styles of cloth. I have my products with the name @FISA’S COLLECTION’ where I puts females’ imagination into realities.
    WHAT SKILLS HAVE I DEVELOPED?
     First of I have been undergoing series of training in the other to get more skills that can advance my talents. I engages in both online and classroom settings where I learns about new discovery and designs to meet up with my customer’s demand. I have partaken in many dress making tutorials such as; THE EVIDENCE SUPPER COLLECTION COMPANY, JIKA’S ANKARA MAKING COMPANY, NKEM DRESS MAKING VENTURES ETC.
     With these experiences, I sometimes do part time jobs where I mends student’s cloths and also sews cloths for them. I receive a lot of money in return and this have been going along way to alleviate my financial dependency on my parents.
     Finally, when I graduates, I plans on renting a dress making firm where many sets of females dresses are being made and sold, I have seen this dress making industry as one of the moving manufacturing industry due to the fact that clothing is one of the basic necessity of life and thus, the demand for it is on accelerating speed. I also plans on expanding my skill so that I can have a large firm with a wide employer of labor and I can achieve this by constant adaptation in innovations that will give my product a unique nature which will make it to be able to compete with similar products for the outside world

    WRITE AN ESSAY ABOUT YOUR TALENT AND SKILL. HOW DO YOU INTEND TO DEVELOP YOUR TALENT AND SKILL TO CREAT WEALTH FOR YOU AND TAKE YOU OUT OF POVERTY BETWEEN NOW TO FIVE YEARS?

    AN ESSAY ABOUT MY TALENT AND SKILL
    DEFINITION OF TALENT AND SKILL
    A talent can be define as someone who has a natural ability to be good at something, especially without being taught. Talent is a natural ability to do something well.
    A skill is define as an ability and capacity acquired through deliberate, systematic and sustained effort to smoothly and adaptively carry out complex activities or job functions involving ideals, things and/or people. A skill is also an ability to use one's knowledge effectively and readily in execution of performance.
    WHAT ARE MY TALENT AND SKILL?
    MY TALENT: MARKETING AND ADVERTISING
    Marketing can be define as the activity, set of institution and processing of creating, communicating, delivering and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners and society at large. It is also a management process through which goods and services move from one concept to the customer. Advertising on the other hand can be defined as a marketing tactic involving paying for space to promote a product, service or cause. The actual promotional messages are called advertisement, or ads for short. The goal of advertising is to reach people most likely to be willing to pay for a company's products or services and entice them to buy. From the above definition of marketing and advertising, looking at my talent, I think I discovered it when I was younger, and that's the reason i said that marketing and advertising has fall under it because I know how to do those two very well by trying to convince people to understand the usefulness and value of the product they want to purchase. I started at a little age to do that which was when I was small, I always to follow my parents to their market place. I always come to my parents' shop after school to help them in their market because my both parents are traders they sell motor spare parts in Abia state and by so doing, I discovered that I was very good at that. Even up till this stage, whenever I travel back home for holidays i do go to stay in the place where they opened their branch in Abia state. I been doing research on modern marketing skills because to be a good marketer you never stop learning .there are many information online, many renowned marketers are actively blogging, tweeting on the latest data and information. LinkedIn is another powerful tool for acquiring marketing. Use of customer data to make decisions. When you market your product customers indirectly or directly give you a hint on what they want and how well they need you to serve them. So it is my job as a good marketer to identify those hint and put it into work. So that I get a positive turn out. I would use technology to improve my marketing skills. You need to use applications as a business user commonly used technologies include email marketing, marketing analytics and marketing automation.
    Successful marketers use schedule and project plans to ensure they complete their work in a timely fashion

    My Talents and Skills ; How I intend to develop them to create wealth for me in the next five years.

    Teaching is my natural ability. I love teaching since when I was a child and I noticed have passion for teaching at the age of seven. Back then in primary school, I used to assist my class teacher with collection of assignments and I love to put my classmates through in some areas they find difficult to understand. While I was in primary school I have always dreamt of owning a school. After my secondary school, I started teaching some children in my compound every evening and when their parents noticed some improvement in their children’s academic performance, they help me to inform others about the evening tutorial. As time goes on, there was increase in the number of children and from there I started making some money. My parents tried to discourage me from teaching but I didn’t give up. After a year, I applied as a classroom teacher in a school within my vicinity where I worked for two years before I got a better offer at Hope Children School as an assistant teacher due to my 0’level certificate. Aside school setting I also teach children in Sunday school.
    I also developed teaching as a skill by enrolling for B.Ed program in University of Nigeria, Nsukka. I have undergone so many trainings that would enable me to be an efficient and well trained teacher. Some courses like special methods in education, psychology of education, curriculum and some other courses helped me to know how to manage the classroom, what to teach the students, teacher’s code of conduct and so on.
    After my studies, I will apply for the post of a teacher in a standard school while trying to save up some money that will be enough for me to hire a place or buy a land where I can start up my school business and within the space of five years my school will made known through the quality education that will be given to students. Aside creating wealth for myself, I will employ qualified teachers in my school and through this they will be able to earn a living and poverty will be alleviated.

    I have a fair for fashion; right from when I was little, I have always wanted to make people look good through their dressing. I always tie my mom scarf, show her the matching shoes, and hand bags to wear for outings occasions and meetings. I sew baby napkins into different things and wear them around the house. I smile when I remember all this, I just do not see “FASHION DESIGNING” as a talent it requires practice and learning to be a professional. So therefore, I will rather say that the passion one has from something, which comes from within, is the talent and the practice and the learning with respect to that is the skill.
    I have a clothing brand I am working on right now I also have a website for it (www.shopdmb.com) I am using this as a starting point for what I actually want to achieve in the future so am still developing the skill. I am at the beginning/ growth stage of my business trying to create brand awareness, build trust in people.
    To use this skill as a wealth creation; actually I have already started making money using this skill through the sales of my products on my website. I have an Instagram and Facebook page too. I advertise my products on this social media platforms and this is one of the best means of making one’s business feasible to people all over the world, you can as well get lots of customers from social media platforms. For the medium term I plan to eradicate poverty for myself and my family and also increase economic growth by using the money I get from the business for the provision of basic needs for myself and my family, this helps to improve the state of economy in our country because more money is pushed into the economy for growth.
    For the long term, economic development is a long-term state of an economy, it is achieved overtime and so, accumulation of wealth from your skill can be used for investment and this plays a huge role in developing the economic state of our country.

    Right from my secondary School days I have always been good in mathematics. This has given me the opportunity to teach mathematics and other related disciplines like physics and economics both to my contemporaries and to the younger class. Thus, I usually teach any time I am opportuned to do so in different secondary schools. This has yielded and is still financial benefits to me.
    Also, right from the time I was very young, I have always been involved in my father's business of buying and selling of goods. This has always been part of of my life most of the time.This business I hope to establish in a standard way in the nearby future when I have the required seed capital fund.
    Lastly I also have skills on the use of computer applications to carry out some statistical programs.

    Sometime we don’t understand the different of talent and skill. Talent is an inborn ability or natural aptitude of a person which is often hidden and needs recognition. It means, being good in a certain activity, without actually learning or acquiring it. Unlike skill, which is a learnt ability, and it can be developed in someone if he/she put his time and efforts in it. The efforts need to be voluntary, systematic and sustained, to acquire a skill and satisfactorily undertake various tasks and activities. Ever since I was little I have always love sports especially football which is actually my talent its inborn in me that I can’t stay in a day without football. For me, the skill I have developed so far is basically on computer which is graphic designs. Even if someone has talent they may still have to work very hard if they want to perform well. Some people become quite good at something even if they do not have much talent, but if they are willing to work very hard at the skill.
    I in person have the gift of trying any practical skill that I come across such as liquid soap and car wash production, jik production, perfume production, buns, chin chin production and cooking food because any time I do all these things people compliment me for a work well done.
    Cooking is my passion and I love feeding others, being a chef is a lucrative way for me to earn a living. This means that by offering my services for a special event that is helping cook, cater, or host some one's dinner party/get together ,wedding,: birthday . As a chef I can actually set my own prices, work for a number of clients and specialize in my own style of cooking. As a student now I can still make money by producing my local detergent like liquid soap and car wash and brand it well and sell to my fellow students and lecturers for washing of plates, bikes and cars respectively at a cheaper rate than what they can actually obtain it from the market and by producing all these,it will also help me to minimize cost that is how I spend instead of buying from the market I can actually produce it and use it myself. From the aforementioned talents backed up with my skill acquisition ability from those areas can actually make me earn a living thereby alleviating me out of poverty and also increasing my standard of living.

    MY TALENT/SKILL AND HOW I HOPE TO USE IT TO CREATE WEALTH AND DEVELOP THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY WITHIN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS (SHORT TERM) AS WELL AS WITHIN THE NEXT TEN YEARS (LONG TERM).

    Sometime we don’t understand the different of talent and skill. Talent is an inborn ability or natural aptitude of a person which is often hidden and needs recognition. It means, being good in a certain activity, without actually learning or acquiring it. Unlike skill, which is a learnt ability, and it can be developed in someone if he/she put his time and efforts in it. The efforts need to be voluntary, systematic and sustained, to acquire a skill and satisfactorily undertake various tasks and activities. Ever since I was little I have always love sports especially football which is actually my talent its inborn in me that I can’t stay in a day without football. For me, the skill I have developed so far is basically on computer which is graphic designs. Even if someone has talent they may still have to work very hard if they want to perform well. Some people become quite good at something even if they do not have much talent, but if they are willing to work very hard at the skill.
    I in person have the gift of trying any practical skill that I come across such as liquid soap and car wash production, jik production, perfume production, buns, chin chin production and cooking food because any time I do all these things people compliment me for a work well done.
    During my younger ages, I was still learning the skill of decoder installation before I then got admitted into the higher institutions. Meanwhile, it constrained and retarded my continuity with the work because of the distance of my school from my master whom am still learning from. I hoped to continue during breaks but my master relocated. I then started going for painting work with my friend who has already developed the skill from his father. So I now developed more on painting as I had much time to learn and get used to it.
    I developed from involving only in domestic painting to industrial painting, where more work and expertise is required and most importantly, I want to develop more on production of the paint itself as well as painting which would create more income and wealth and hence help in solving my basic needs and wants which will alleviate poverty in my live.

    It was back in the year 2014 when I just concluded my secondary school Education, I was to wait for a year in order to take the jamb Examinations the next year .so instead of sitting at home been idle, I decided to Pursue catering as a skill ,although as a young girl, I have always loved to cook and try new ideas On different food , to make this dream a success, I applied for a catering class immediately, this was how I developed myself in cooking different somcious meals, baking Cakes and cupcakes, meat pie, fish pie, biscuits, making ice-cream,And so many other varieties of food. I didn't just stop at learning, I continued practicing to perfect my skills and I also Started selling meat pie, fish pie, egg roll, buns, biscuits to my neighbours around and friends with a little capital , I also visited offices and schools to advertise my self and sell to them at very affordable prices , I was really making it especially in some situations whereby some children including adults wouldn't be able to cook and eat at home because of time constraints therefore they would care well for my services ,this made very happy because in a way I was developing my community with my skills and also developing my self more than before, I would even plan for days like election days to sell to people Or any gathering at all, from there I started getting calls to events like Birthdays parties, Engagement and wedding ceremonies, matriculation, convocation ceremonies, seminars, Send off parties and so many other events.
    I had a lot of opportunities to offer my services to everyone around me through my Catering skills.along the line I encountered some challenges, I starting making more losses than I made profit , For example there was a day I spent over 47,000 in preparing snacks for an upcoming seminar but later found out that the seminar was cancelled And Also 58,000 Was lost in the recent elections that was postponed , I became bankrupt like never before but I didn't let those break downs to completely break and discourage me, In a way I found my self up again with the help of my good friends, it thought me that I shouldn't Let bad situations discourage me but encourage me more so with this I decided to give my baking services a Package and brand name to make myself more known and presentable , I don't know how God did it, I had more customers than I have always had, most people appreciated my brand and patronized me a lot, they made wonderful comments about my product and services, they said I was good and I always made Every of their events Memorable for people after eating my brand which means I was not just helping my self But contributing greatly to my community.
    I intend to keep my skill active and go world wide starting from Nigeria as my country , if I could sell more and raise enough capital I would build a bakery shop where everyone could come over to order without stress , I would make Sure My brand is distinguished from other brand in uniqueness, presentation, especially in been organized, I will try as much as possible to make sure it deliveries are always in order and on time, I will also give nutrition information about my product therefore every customer who patronizes my product will have good knowledge of what they are taking into their system.

    ASSIGNMENT: DISCUSS YOUR IDENTIFIED TALENT AND SKILLS DEVELOPED. HOW DO YOU INTEND TO DEVELOP YOUR TALENT AND SKILL TO CREATE WEALTH FOR YOU AND TAKE YOU OUT OF PORVERTY IN FUTURE?

    Skills are acquired and developed while talents are in-borne. Talents are given to a person even before the person is born. One can develop this talent when discovered into a skill and use it to create wealth for him or herself in future and even his society and nation at large. As a person , I noticed I had this passion for sewing since I was younger. I use to watch my aunt sew cloths for her children, herself and other people at large. I always use to watch her sew the cloths and as a quick learner, I learned faster than my age could carry but was never allowed to go close to the machine. One day when my aunt was away, I decided to use the machine to practice what I saw her doing with a little fabric I had picked up from her waste bag. I showed her what I made but she only threw it away. I was sad but never gave up. I made another little dress ,showed it to her but this time she opened it, gave me an unexplained look and said to me “you are such a genius” .I never knew what that meant but I knew I was not cursed.
    When I grew up, I tried to develop this talent into a skill but there came these barriers, CAPITAL AND TIME FACTOR. In other to fit into the latest or modern day fashion I need to undergo an extensive training so as to acquire the desired knowledge about the target I have in mind. I had tried my best the little time I had the chance but could not come up with that amount of money. Even my parents liked the idea but they can’t afford the money I was expected to at the moment for the start. But the fact still remains that there is more to this talent than just sewing. Yea , like fashion designing . I may not have discovered that but believe that one it will be made manifest if I eventually learn this sewing skill, I believe I can be able to open my own shop or even stay at home and still do the work I learnt because I know I have to start in a small way .sewing for myself the stuffs I wear isn’t a bad idea, sewing for my parents and siblings is not too bad though. What about neighbors and yard members too, not also bad. I could start from there then if so can get connected to the outside world and believe me with that I have created wealth for myself and if I happen to expand the business I can, put someone there as it is going to be a part a time something and that means am creating wealth for myself and the society and reducing unemployment. I also noticed I can act and debate but am way too shy to talk to the crowd. This has been my greatest problem for life. I just need someone who could help me in any way so I can stay away from shy and speak up for myself. I believe I will be a great person if I overcome this problem.
    I hopefully believe that when am able to achieve all this by turning this talent into a reputable skill, I will be able to take myself away from poverty without waiting for Mr. president to decide what my next level will look like but that is not conclusive anyway.

    EDUCATION ECONOMICS CONSTITUENCY
    Introduction
    TALENT
    I Made Ifeanyi David has being bless by God with the talent of teaching. Well some people out there may disagree with me that teaching is not a talent, that it can be learn as a skill which have been the worst problem facing Nigeria educational system. I adhere to the quote which says that "Teachers are born not made". The passion and love for teaching is inborn and not through skill acquisition. Sorry to say, but the betterment of a Nation lies in the hand of our teacher. You can believe with me that children accept what the teacher said to be true than what their parents or any other person said. When a child is wrongly informed, that child will be deformed, there by growing with the wrong information and accepting what is false.
    I love teaching, starting from my primary school days. Teaching have become the other side of me. I started teaching when I was in primary three, then I understood Quantitative Reasoning more than any other person in our class. I do love it when people comes to me for further explanation of some of the concepts. My talent started manifesting when our primary school teacher do ask me to come out and explain some question to my classmates then I started developing the habit of teaching and if I wasn't able to explain for better understanding, I will feel happy.
    Due I started it for my personal passion for teaching but as times goes on I started collecting some money. Then my real name was change to master Maths. I have teach in many places include where I earn income and where I did it for the passion. I later got per time job to teach at a lesson center. Teaching there was like a stepping stone to my talent development. Teaching have always been my preceded job.

    HOW CAN I USE TEACHING TO GENERATE INCOME FOR MYSELF IN THE 5 TO 10 YEARS.
    Some centuries ego peoples idiology was that the reward of teachers are in heaven. That's why teachers were given peanut in the name of salary but currently the reverse is the case. Due their labour and contributions is still great than their income. I intend to specialize in teaching as my profession but the gate of job opportunity or vacancy is not wide open like that. So because of limited job opportunity within the country, I will first of all start teaching in any smaller institution, maybe join any jamb reason center, known as special centers. Why I wish so is because my income over is better off what private institutions can offer. Mean why some students will still nurse interest for private lessons which will be beneficial to me.

    SKILLS.
    i) Drawing (Artistic work)
    ii) Business tycoon (management of business)

    DRAWING
    drawing is what I have live with almost all my life. I learnt how to draw back then doing my primary school, through the help of our neighbor. I used drawing as my hobby then. I collect nothing after drawing. So far I lotted in my Daddy's business for so long now. My Daddy is a trader who specialized on building materials, specifically wood aspects. I was a per time businessman during my secondary school days. After secondary school certificate, I embraced the business fulltime. My Daddy was so happy having me by his side. My suggestions have been fruitful. I was able to managed the business for two years and indeed profit was made.
    How to generate money
    My aim is to return back to the business after school. My Daddy is an importer in the business but all his transactions have been done on phone. Well I intend to move the business higher by traveling to the west and gather more information about the business.

    A DISCUSSION ON MY DISCOVERED TALENTS AND HOW A COMBINATION OF THESE CAN SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF POVERTY IN MY LIFE AND NATION
     Definition of Key Terms
    Talent: According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, talent is:
    a) A special often athletic, creative, or artistic aptitude.
    b) The natural endowments of a person.
    Skill: According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, skill is:
    a) The ability to use one’s knowledge effectively and readily in execution or performance.
    b) A learned power of doing something competently: a developed aptitude or ability.
     My Talents and Skills
    One talent I can say I have always had right from when I was little is ‘musical inclination’ (sometimes called musical hearing). This means that I have an ear for music; I can easily learn things that are music-related, I can spot the flaws in a musical piece, I can easily teach music, etc. Another talent is organisation (in my writing, arrangement, speaking, etc.). Most people tell me this is a skill but I consider it a talent because it is something I came into this world with and I did not have to learn it.
    As for my skills, I have generated my talent for music into skills. I play three musical instruments (the recorder, keyboard, and guitar) and I am currently learning how to play the drums. Also, I dance and write poems, stories, and songs sometimes.
    With all these, I would still say my major skill is teaching. I have always loved teaching right from when I was little (as my mother would tell me). I do not stop at my love for it but I keep on trying to develop it. My mother owns a school and whenever I get the chance (holidays, breaks, strikes, etc.), I teach there and I can proudly say I am getting better at it. I have been able to find methods that help children learn better, such as, using incentives, using basic and funny analogies, encouraging them to broaden their imagination, etc.
     How I Intend to use these Talents and Skills to Solve the Problem of Poverty in my Life and Nation
    Beginning with my musical inclination talent which has given birth to skills, I plan on sharing the musical knowledge I have and will acquire by having music schools (and dance schools also). I have already started that while in school here. I teach the little I know now to anyone that is interested, and there are always people who are eager to learn. As we all know, the entertainment sector is one which will not die out because we always need one form of entertainment or the other. So, I see this as a means by which I would be able to generate income in the future and in the same vein, train other people who would do same.
    Coming to the area of teaching, I do not know yet if I would be interested in running a school because I know how stressful it is from the one my mother owns. But, one thing I know is that I would find a way to be able to make an impact on a number of lives through teaching. Currently, I work for someone who runs an educational website by providing tutorials to enable them prepare for their Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination and when I see comments on how helpful the tutorials were, I get this sense of fulfilment. Now, bringing it to how this can help the nation, it is obvious that illiteracy is one of the causes of poverty. Teaching is one thing I can do without even being paid and this actually one of the things that drive me to learn. I plan on giving off everything I learn to whoever I can. With this, I know I can reduce the illiteracy rate in the country, and in the same way, reduce poverty. Now, this is not a job I might be able to do alone but then, like Marian Wright Edelman would say:
    “In trying to make a big difference, do not ignore the small daily differences we can make. Over time, they can add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.”

    QUESTION: Discuss your identified talent and the skills you have developed. And then you intend to develop your talent and skill to earn money or create wealth for you and take you out of poverty.

    Talent is a natural endowment in man. I believe that everybody born of a woman is and should be endowed with a talent. Talent which can be defined as an inbuilt or natural ability that is been embedded in an individual which that individual can exhibits or performs with ease. Talent can come in different forms; either tangible or intangible. For me, I will say that my talent can be said to be intangible. I have this talent of being able to convince people to embark on things which I believe would be of an advantage to them which they are really having hard time embarking on or taking decisions on .My family deals in supplying of goods in wholesale, thus this involves convincing people on purchasing a particular or variety of products, which might be new or have been existing for a while and believe me this is not an easy task. In this family business my main aim is to enlighten and convince the customer on the availability of a particular product or variety of products by really detailing the importance and satisfaction which he/she would derive from procuring such product. I can say that I do this aspect well and with ease, thus I can term it as my talent. And this talent of mine has continuously been keeping food on the table for me and my family.
    Furthermore, I have the skill of baking, I started baking at an early age and I can say that I really derive joy from it even though it seems rampant now. During the years, I have engaged in so many productions/supplies of the products of my baking’s such as cakes (cupcakes), breads, meat pie, fish roll, chin chin, buns, egg roll, flour pie, pancakes, and many others.
    When I started newly I supplied my products for my close relations with little or no cost but as I perfected more in it , people within where I live started demanding for my services which I supplied for a reasonable sum of money. I also baked varieties and supplied to many retail shops and I also tutor people who wants to learn based on a stipulated time and for a reasonable sum. This and that which I did generates an average sum of income for me which kept and is still keeping me going. Hence I believe with GODS grace, this skill and talent of mine despite how little it might seem now will continuously keep food on my table for more than 5 years to come.

    MY TALENT
    I actually do not have much things to call my talent but at least I know that the following I can back actually to be my talent.
    Writing
    Cooking
    Teaching
    HOW I KNOW AND IDENTIFIED THAT THEY WERE MY TALENT
    WRITING: I can confidently say that writing is my talent because whenever am downhearted or find myself in a difficult situations, all I need is just to pick up a pen, pencil, laptop, anything I can write with that is available at that moment and I just pour out all my stress, downheartedness, difficult situation etc into writing of which I don’t even think of what to write and surprisingly will later turn out to be either motivational words or it could even turn out to be a poem.
    COOKING: For this I will say that I think it is my talent because I love cooking naturally, and anything at all that has to do with the kitchen, and I as well love combining dishes to know how it turn out and what the taste will turn out to be like. And I actually have worked in a restaurant where I was the chef.
    TEACHING: This also I feel is my talent because even right from my child hood I gather my neighbors children together and I teach them to the extent that their parents sometimes will organize a party for us just to serve as a motivator. Even at a time people were like that really my zeal for teaching children, impacting on their life’s and the joy I derive when I see them excel was natural and inborn so this continued until I graduated from my secondary school and I had to apply for a teaching job until I got my admission and had to resign.

    HOW I INTEND TO DEVELOP MY TALENT THAT WILL HELP ELEVATE ME FROM POVERTY IN THE NEAREST FUTURE.
    WRITING: in developing this I will try looking for a mentor who will be willing to help me at times create fake anger to make me write more and will as well help coach me through in terms of correction, publication etc. because I know that through the selling of those books I will be able to make a living out it.
    COOKING: For this I have to go for a Catering school to improve on my talent the more and also learn how to prepare more of intercontinental dishes, learn more table settings etc. so that in the future I will be able to open up my own restaurant where I will not just dish out local dishes but also intercontinental dish so as to be able to entertain different varieties of people, and from there I will make a comfortable life out of it.
    TEACHING: I already have started developing this talent of mine by choosing educational part in my academic line of learning, because I know I will be thought more about teaching skill, classroom management and a lot of other things I need to know about teaching, and I can confidently say that after this training it do me a lot of good financially to improve my life in the nearest future because I can own A school, I as well can own a day care, I can work as homeroom teacher, as a lecturer, I can as well render a home lessons to people and get paid hourly and all these would really improve my financial status.
    MY ACQUIRED SKILLS
    HAIR STYLING: I acquired this skill by learning.
    HOW I INTEND TO DEVELOP MY ACQUIRED SKILL THAT WILL HELP ELEVATE ME FROM POVERTY IN THE NEREST FUTURE.
    HAIR STYLING: Already I have developed this because I am perfect when it comes to this. All I have to do is try getting my own shop and advertise my hand work both online and other wise, with this step I know I will get many people to patronize me and this act will make me financially balance and elevate me from future poverty.

    DISCUSS YOUR TALENT AND SKILLSYOU HAVE DEVELOPED AND HOW DO YOU INTEND TO DEVELOP YOUR TALENT AND SKILLS TO CREATE WEALTH FOR YOU AND TO TAKE YOU OUT OF POVERTYIN THE LONG TERM.
    A skill can be said to be to have knowledge which is learnt from others.
    A talent is a natural ability found in someone.
    The talent I have come to have discover in me are enthusiasm and critical thinking while the skills I have acquired are graphic designing, barbing, tailoring etc.
    People may ask how being enthusiastic and being a critical thinker is going to develop me and the economy in general. Though it does not give money but one way to achieve your goal is having a good mindset about it and I’m very good in that. On the other side of critical thinking, in order to create new innovation or the one already existing to be developed, you need to think critically about it.
    My skills can be said to be what I derive joy from doing. The skills which I have learnt are graphic designing, barbing, tailoring
    How I intend to use my skills and talent to create wealth for myself and take myself out of poverty is by opening a barbing saloon in the vicinity and thereby employing some persons to work in there by creating employment for the masses and also creating money for myself. Also when it comes to tailoring and graphic designing I will make available some sowing machines and cyber café in order for people to access both of them in order to make money

    MY TALENT
    My talent is teaching others. Teaching is act of transferring knowledge to people or it is a way of teaching someone what he or she does not know. I like teaching anybody around me because it gives me joy when my neighbor acquire the same knowledge I have. For the love I has in teaching, I have to apply for education when I was seeking for admission in university so that I can acquire more knowledge and learn how to handle student in the classroom. I develop the interest of teaching when I was a little girl, I will call my siblings around then we all will start learning I will be teaching them and they will be responding and when they make noise I will flog them how my teacher do in school. Teaching gives me joy when ever am teaching especially calling the student name whenever i what to ask them question. And also when siblings and I go to church for catechism if our teacher is not around I sit on her chair and start teaching others. I can remember when I did my first teaching practice I will go inside the class anytime whether it is my time or not to teach the student.
    HOW I CAN USE MY TALENT TO ALLEVIATE POVERTY
    Being a teacher in future time, I will help me and impact knowledge on my students, give them enough training as a student. This is because teachers mould the country as well as an individual. Becoming a teacher will be
    an avenue for me to engage myself on multiple streams of income so that I will not depend on my salary for a living. I will engage myself in an extra lesson after school for students who what to learn more concerning the day lesson.
    Due to teachers always have time to do any other business? I will also like to establish a poultry farm where I can lay hen like an old layer in which I will be selling both eggs and the chicken in a wholesale. Teaching and the same time engaging in business will help me to alleviate poverty in my life.
    From teaching I will have the opportunity to further more such as masters and doctor of philosophy so that if I have the opportunity to get a lecturing job or any other job from any organization I can be able to work perfectly well . Or even acquire more knowledge to use it and expand my poultry business and also diversify in any other businesses like renting canopy, chair and plate for people organizing for event like wedding, birthday and so on.

    My talent is teaching (to impact knowledge). I discovered my talent when I was in children’s class ( church), I do come out to teach my fellow kids and I always enjoyed it. So as I grew up I have it in mind that one day, I will be a teacher and also have a school of my own. That was one of the reason I applied for education (course) in university in other to develop this talent and also achieve my dream.
    However, in the area of developing my talent (myself) most of the courses I offer here in school educates me on learning experiences, learning styles, tests, and feedback from teacher and students learning arrangements, curriculum, etc. Because I believe that through teaching I can change people’s behavior, I can counsel people and also motive people on how to make it in life. Also reading of books, novels, reading of magazine, writing stories, use of the websites of research purposes, reading online material, quotes, seminar programs offered by the school or community. And teaching practice that I did in second year in secondary school (ss2) has also helped me develop my talent because teaching practice builds a strong sense of self-efficacy, effective goal setting , and a personal commitment that can enhance students’ teacher specific achievements and lead them to higher-level career accomplishments.
    Furthermore, my talent will help me create wealth, that will take me out of poverty “between ‘’5 years to 10 years from now. through reading and writing of books, , teaching practice etc, which will give me great inspirations and ideas on how my talent will be of great use to the society by building a school and also reduction of unemployment by employing workers
    My skills, the skills I acquired that will help me create wealth and that take me out of poverty “Between” 5 years to 10 years from now. Skills simply mean to have personal or practical knowledge of, be versed or practiced, be expert. Skill are usually acquired or learned, as opposed to abilities. The skills that I have acquired are cooking, baking, decoration. The first skill that I acquired is cooking, how to cook party food, wedding food, etc. because my mother have a restaurant and she also cook occasional food. The second skill that I acquired is baking which I learnt from my roommate, and then the third one is decoration from my fellowship (redeemed Christian fellowship) as a worker.
    In developing these skills I watch videos on cooking, baking, decoration on U-Tube, face book, twitter, television programs etc.
    So I have decided to develop these skills under one umbrella called( catering )to establish a business of my own. After my final year, the period I will be waiting to be call for services, I will enroll into a catering school in other to learn more, because catering deals with different skills like: decorating wedding event, decorating festivals, concerts and sports events, rental inventory, wonderful food and also sewing decoration materials. With the development of these catering skills, I will not only be a professional to my customers, but I will also improve profit margins by make delicious food, to ensure excellent customer service. Ensure a sanitary environment, offer competitive pricing, develop excellent management skills, keep business expenses low, and develop excellent communication skills in other to make the business grow into a big business or a large company which will also be a means of creating wealth for me and help in reducing unemployment and poverty in the economy.
    In conclusion, my talent and skills will be of great advantage to me after graduate, because I wouldn’t wait for government to employ me before acquiring wealth which would be of great benefit to me and the society especially in the aspect of teaching, there is a passage of the bible that says “my people perish due to lack of knowledge” so through proper incursion of knowledge, many lives would be prevented from perishing.

    A talent is a hidden gift in you from God which can be developed by you.
    God gave many people different talents like singing dancing, playing, teaching, drawing and many more.
    God bless me with the talent of teaching and am grateful to him for that. Growing up as a child, loving found myself so much attached to teaching, and I will gather all our neighborhood children together and start telling them stories of which after that I will ask them questions one after the other.
    I have always envied my mother's dress code and the unique name which she has always been addressed with "Madam" and as a child, I have always wanted to dress like her and also being addressed with such name, and I started following my mother to school from childhood, I will pay attention in class and watch my teacher teach us so that if I get home I will be able to demonstrate everything just like the teacher while teaching our neighborhood kids.
    All the great men and women passed through teachers before being great.
    When I entered secondary school, my love for teaching grow more, I discovered that teaching in secondary school is simpler compared with teaching in primary school as it is one teacher, one subject not in primary school that one teacher will teach all the subjects and still take care of the pupils. During break-time, my friends will gather together and ask me to teach them the ones they didn't understood when the teacher was teaching,
    Teaching is not really easy, you must read and study very hard so that you will not end up teaching what you don't know or disgracing yourself in front of the people you are teaching. Because of this I read everything so that I will always be prepared, ready at anytime.
    My teachers are always proud of me because I read above my mates and always ask questions whenever I don't understand. When I entered senior secondary, some of our teachers (junior teachers) sometimes gives me there note to go and teach the junior ones. During exam time, I normally invigorate junior classes.
    After my secondary school, because I was to be an educator I choosd to study an educational course in the university so that it will enable me to learn more and know more about teaching.
    During our first teaching practice, some of my mates were afraid to teach because they found it difficult to face the students, but I did mine with ease because it was not my first time of doing it and it has mastered me right from time.
    After my studies in the university am planning to open my own school even If i get or I didn't get a job. I will start with home lessons, and doing extra morals lesson for students at least with this am independent, it will help me take care of myself and my needs.

  79. A DISCUSSION ON THE TALENT AND SKILL I HAVE DEVELOPED AND MY PLANE ON HOW I WILL USE THIS TALENT TO CREATE WEALTH AND BE OUT OF POVERTY BETWEEN NOW AND IN THE LONGRUN.
    One thing I realized is that every human being is endowed with a unique talent from God, but the problem is how to discover and develop it.
    I discovered that I have a special talent from God at the age of ten. Although it was condition that made me realized that I have a gift at that early age.
    It happened that things started being hard to us in my family after the death of my father, my mother found it difficult to meet up with the family’s needs. If someone had told me I would pass secondary school, let alone entering higher institution, I would only tell the person that he/she is dreaming.
    I will never forget the day in school I was drove out from classroom because I did not pay my school fees. I can still remember what my teacher told me that day which makes me to be where I am today. The teacher told me that when she was at my age her parents only supported her with a little money to pay her school fees. She told me I have every needed thing to get out of my condition, but the problem is not utilizing it.
    I got home that day, locked myself in the room and started praying, carrying and telling God to direct me on what to do. As I was praying, I got an idea, that I should join hand with my mother in her business. I immediately rejected that idea because I did not believe that my mother’s business could cater for my family.
    To cut the whole story short, I later joined my mother in the business. My mother is a petty trader. She sells all kinds of fruit every day. I would always pick some fruits and hawk round the village market. People would tell me that I have a excellent business trait. Things started getting better for my family.
    During the last vacation, my brother left his shop for me and embarked on a business trip. I realized up to N350,000.00 for him within a period of 3 months.
    In summary, I have a talent of managing a business; I have this gift of convincing and/or enticing customers to patronize my goods, which is the secret behind the success of any business.
    My plan now is that after my education, I will open a shop of my own,ich I believe that it will be a successful one with my talent and the skill I will acquire as an economist. And that I will never experience poverty again because I will create wealth in a long run.

    INTRODUCTION
    To my own understanding, talent implies a special ability that allows someone to do something well or perfect. While skills means the ability to do something that comes from training, experience or practice.
    However, my talent is ‘Teaching’ and that of my skill is ‘Barbing’. I believe in my primary and secondary school days. I love addressing a group of people whether formally or informally, there is a joy of satisfaction I normally derive when talking or addressing a crowd also teaching in your own area of specialization. I learnt my skills back then in the secondary school, from my JSS 3 when were about to write junior WAEC. Ever since then, I barb people and they give me little money which normally serves as pocket money.

    HOW MY TALENT AND SKILLS CAN BE DEVELOPED AND CREATE WEALTH AND AS WELL ERADICATE POVERTY
    From my own perspective above, I can comfortably use my talent to eradicate poverty in my life. For instance, during school holidays or after graduation, you can be self-employed by developing or starting a lesson centre. Believe it students will start coming and from there, you earn money and more to the next level. Moreover, even as a graduate who is still furthering his/her Masters Programme can be employed as a secondary school teacher where one can earn some money, after which you can become a lecturer in any university which is part of developing your talent, moving towards wealth and eradicating poverty.
    In addition, a barbing saloon is another powerful skill people sometimes underestimate or look down on. For example, if one can barb ten people in a day, at the cost of N200, then in a week you earn N14,000 and you save N5000 per week.
    Also , another way one can eradicate poverty through his/her skills and talent is to find a way and empower his/herself not only in business, but also as a person, moreover if 85% of individuals can hence utilize their talents and skills effectively , at least every citizen of Nigeria will be above average Nigerians.
    Also another step to take in other to eradicate poverty is by ensuring good conduct with people most especially if you are serving the public.
    For example, maintain a nice conduct. The way or the approach you talk to people matters a lot even as a teacher and also as a banker or a barber.
    In conclusion, having talent is the same as saying a person has the ability to become highly skilled at something way faster than most of us. What is more important to succeed in life is hard work or talent. Also the key to success in our professional lives is to work hard to maximize our talents and strength.

    MY TALENT/SKILL AND HOW I HOPE TO USE IT TO CREATE WEALTH AND DEVELOP THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY WITHIN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS (SHORT TERM) AS WELL AS WITHIN THE NEXT TEN YEARS (LONG TERM).
    A Talent or Skill is said to be an innate ability to carry out or perform a particular task with minimal difficulty.
    It’s not a generally known fact, but one of the fastest ways to eradicate poverty is through the use of our talents. This is because these are the things we can do to the very best with the least of efforts. They are God-given and therefore should be used to create wealth and thereby eradicating poverty. A practical example is Linda Ikeji who has used her talents to generate mind blowing wealth for herself. Other examples include the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi who I have actually looked at as my role models because my talent is playing football. I have mastered the act of kicking the ball. This getting out of poverty is what I have started doing already. My team and I have won two trophies which we won #200,000 and #450,000 respectively.
    My plan is to finish school and join an academy that may project me to other levels; God helping me. It is generally known that footballers actually secure themselves lucrative wages. With this, it should not be a problem for me to create wealth and ultimately eradicate poverty if I can get the opportunity to play for famous football clubs because I know I have what it takes.
    As for my skill, I have this skill in cake baking which I do whenever I am free from studies. I do not make money from this, because all the cakes I bake are for my personal consumption. It is so because I do not intend to go into that because I really have passion for football. In fact, I know how to bake cake because I was in baking skill department at my secondary school.

    ASSIGNMENT.
    Discuss your identified skill and talent and how it will create wealth for you in the next five years.

    Skill……………. Laundry, Painting and Brick laying.
    Talent…………. Writing.
    Ones skill is his ability to carry out a task with an expected result often with a given amount of energy and time or both. Skills are learnt and developed over time and it requires certain environmental stimuli and situations to be shown and utilized. People need at least certain amount of skills and talent to contribute positively in the economy.

    On the other hand, talent is a natural endowment on someone just as nations are naturally endowed with natural resources. In Nigeria’s present economic situation, one has to have more than one still to survive and maintain on average standard of living be he uneducated, undergraduate or a graduate. Nigerians economic condition needs more of entrepreneurs than intraprenuers for there to be a substantial stable growth on the gross domestic product (GDP).

    Brief introduction on how I acquired the above listed skills.
    Firstly, the laundry skill came about from the collective effort of my brother and I during our secondary school. I learnt everything about laundry from my brother while in secondary school including how to sort cloths into colorfast and non-colorfast, to washing, drying, ironing down to neatly folding.

    Painting and brick laying are the skills are learnt from my father who is a builder. I do follow him to his construction site then while I learnt how to do this two handwork and at the same time been paid for running errands at the site.

    Basically this are the three informal skills I got from my family while growing up and its patient to say that I do paint my fellow student’s rooms in the school on a little charge.

    Writing is a talent I have discovered in myself. Though this is still at the infancy stage because I haven’t paid so much attention to it. I intend enrolling for a writing workshop (the Farafina trust conducted every summer by Chimamand Nogzi Adchie) so that I can fully tap into this potential in the nearest future.

    It is important to note that am going into writing not necessarily as a sources of livelihood but because it’s a passion that came from reading.

    HOW CAN THIS IDENTIFIED SKILLS AND TALENT CREATE WEALTH FOR ME IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS?
    Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. For me to explore this skills and talent, I have to work hard in perfecting on them so that I can go beyond the boundaries of my locality. In essence, I have to undergo some level of formal training particularly on the painting and brick laying to have a firm grip of want to skill requires so that I can be a guru on it and also acquire the basic tools required so that i can be an employer of labor in the nearest future.

    For the laundry service, all I need to do is to site a good business location and employ someone that will manage it for me (a good business location is the heartbeat of every successful business).

    I wanting to write not because I want to earn a living from it but because it’s something I enjoy doing and I always feel I can excel in it.

    So with this approach, I believe I five years to come I will utilize my skill and talent to create job for me and at the same time employ workers.

    QUESTION: Discuss your talent/skill and how you have planned to use it to create wealth for yourself to liberate you from poverty in the next 5 years (short term) and in the next 10 years (long term).

    INTRODUCTION
    According to Angela Duckworth of the University of Pennsylvania, She defined talent as the rate at which someone gets better with effort. For example, it could be the rate at which you get better at soccer if soccer is your talent; The rate at which you get better in dancing if dancing is your talent. She further explained, given that you are putting forth a certain amount of effort and absolutely believe and not everyone does, but I think most people do that there are differences in talent among us that we are not all equally talented” (Duckworth, 2016).
    MY TALENT
    Having known that discovering your talent at earlier stage is one of the fundamental thing in life, I learnt computer program and graduated with Diploma Certificate in computer application in the year 2015 and further applied for Printing and Publishing program where I also graduated with Diploma Certificate as a printer and a Publisher. Having done this, I was opportune to hustle hard to make savings and with the support from my parents I was able to raise some money and establish a business where I was able to gain daily income and as time keeps moving, income keeps increasing and I enlarge my business by relocating to a more developed area and also have enough space where I can invest more working materials.
    As a publisher, I use to gain contracts such as book publications, posters, banners, etc and as a computer operator I use to train people in computer applications leading to award of Certificate, photocopy documents, online registration which lead to the growth of my business to the level that I was able to meet up with the requirements for business name registration and I have to register my business name under the Corporate Affairs Commission (C.A.C) such that it increases the status of my business and as the status increases, my income also increased
    Having known that the level of my income as at this moment is not sufficient as I want, I took my JAMB UTME and got Admission into the University of Nigeria Nsukka where I am pursuing my B.S.C Certificate to enable me increase my personal status and stand a chance to apply for Jobs with better position and salary, and with such income from my B.S.C Job I can be able to enlarge my business more by importing computer accessories into the country and also build JAMB C.B.T Centre in different locations in country where applicants can sit for their UTME exams.
    Being an Importer, JAMB CBT owner, Business Centre for computer Training with income from my working place I can now escape from poverty both in medium term and long term although currently as a student I can now address myself as a C.E.O with employees.

    Thanks to Dr. Tony for this wonderful assignment.

    Discuss your identified talents and the skills you have developed. And then how do you intend to develop your talent and skill to earn money/create wealth for you and take you out of poverty.

    The impact of skill and talent in poverty eradication, economy growth and development can never be over emphasizing. Skill and talent development is the major ingredient that can take someone out of perpetual poverty and the goal of macro economy i.e. full employment, economy growth etc to be achieve. Skill development helps to provide employment and diversification of the economy which will result to economy growth and development.
    Skill is said to be innate ability to carry carried out or perform a particular task with minimal difficulty. Ability to use one's knowledge effectively to learned power of doing something competently, for any country to move from grass to grace like china in term of economy skill and talent must be develop not to depend solely on oil and white scholar job as it is common in Nigeria. I have to recognize my talent: don’t underestimate or overestimate my talents which are:
    1. Poultry farming
    2. Welding and iron bending
    3. Ajajability without Akuntity
    HOW CAN I USE THIS SKILL TO GET OUT OF POVERTY?
    Well, I intend to start up a business that will be centered majorly on the above mentions skills and talents
    Poultry farming: this skill came to me due to significant role play by agriculture in the economy of Nigeria and world and haven been in the system for some time, I have the zeal to develop this skill because of the two factors to be consider before starting the business
    The need base of the society, this business arise when I travel to my state in the month of September 2018-january 2019. For the mere time I spent in the state, I work in Obembe poultry farm and not less than 50 fowl, 100 crate of eggs and chickens are demanded on the daily basis and demand is always more than supply.
    Resources base: resources like land, weather conditions have been taken into consideration. Land is at affordable prices and partial electricity. When I develop this skill, I supply to others local government within the state and nearby state, create an easy ways of delivery of the goods to the customers and to undergo more three months training.
    Welding and iron bending skill: I intern to develop this skill when I have the money to purchase my welding machine and to rent a shop
    “AJAJABILITY WITHOUT AKUNTITY”
    It is one of my skills I want to develop that will be in form of non -governmental organization aim at to clear every obstacle that may hinder skill and talents development. “AJAJABILITY without AKUNTITY” just like garri without sugar.
    Ajajability without akuntity just like garri without sugar simply laid emphasis on how some countries are blessed with resources and skill personnel but lack of qualified personnel to manage those resources which lead to killing of the young entrepreneur dream.
    Some people are blessed with skill but still have the problem of developing it as a result of waiting for white scholar job when there are many opportunities outside to exploit with their talent. Talent and skill development in Nigeria faces a setback because of lack of resources to build it up. For instance, loan for those that have the talent of going into agriculture which will help to diversify the economy, bad road, electricity, deficiency in demand as a result of late payment of salary, lack of machinery for production.
    All those factors killed talent and skill that is why this organization is out to fight for the young talented or potential entrepreneur so that they will have a flat play ground in their business by measure that the portion of the national budget main to encourage the entrepreneur to get to them because skill without development is a set back to the economy.

    MY TALENT AND SKILL WHICH I INTEND TO DEVELOP MORE AND BECOME A BETTER PERSON IN THE SOCIETY WITHIN 5 -10 YEARS

    Talent is what we do that gives us joy without being taught. It is God's gift to every human being and mine is acting.I love acting and I derive joy when ever I find myself engaging in it. I think its a good feeling to know that individuals are relived of his or her stress by watching you perform on stage. I started acting since my elementry level till date I have been in drama club, probably by God's grace after my graduation from the university I hope to use the talent to generate income through entering the movie indusrtry and even advertising products for any production conpany through acting. I want to change people's perspective about acting and especially my parents. Acting is a very good talent because it helps to convey messages to people all over the world and I think that its more productive when producers of different products use acting to advertise their product instead of just giving information about the product.

    Skill is a form of talent that is learnt or acquired through practice in order to earn a living for you and your family. I want to develop my skills in management as regardless of cost and buget constraint. As an Economist, months ago I observed that people get tensed up or even, have high blood pressure due to over thinking of how their event is going to be, if it is going to be as planned. So I decided that we need more event planners in our society to lessen people's burden and to minimise cost for individuals with limited income and maximize utility. I mean any kind of parties especially; white wedding and traditional marriage.

    In conclusion,in time I believe with dedication and hardwork the business will expand into a large scale firm by getting more clients to invest in the business and thereby creating more job opportunities and alleviating individuals and my self from poverty.

    MY TALENT.
    I dont think anyone on earth feels bad as i do when they see people dressed bad. It is inborn because in my early days i skips school if my school uniform is not well pressed due to power failure. I make sure that all my friends look as cute as i am especially in occasion where we are made to look cute such as during our school graduation ceremony, inter house sports competition and the Children day or national day.
    HOW TO DEVELOP MY TALENT INTO SKILLS AND BE EARNING MONEY FROM IT IN NEXT 5 YEARS.
    Being into modeling is one of the things i occupies my whole childhood days thinking of. Am currently making wave and have a well tabled plans to make it in life through modeling. After my secondary school, i joined a modeling company and currently am the Editor in chief of a modeling magazine which its invention was my sole initiative. Also an ambassador to one of the modeling company in my state.
    Many fashion firms, though domestic firms have employed me as there marketer due to my dexterity in creating a fitting test in clothes and my pictures in their firm magazine have been the selling point of their firms.
    After my university, i will devote my time on improving my magazine. By 2022, with my influence in modeling and the knowledge i have acquired being the ambassador of one of the most popular modeling company in my state and through the money i made being a marketer of many fashion firms i will create my own modeling company and also improve my magazine to be the best sought after fashion magazine in my state.
    By 2023, i would have improved my modeling firm and try to make it to be competing with the modeling companies that are in apex of the ladder. I will do that by seeking and employing young talents who will model under me and compete with their fellows in the events like Miss Nigeria, Which is modeling event sponsored by Bluebird company.

  87. My Talent
    From my kindergarten, i love it when people taste my food. I started with cooking with sands in my childhood days and i feels happy when my fellow kids taste it. Though i do not know what am doing then, the only thing i feels is the passion and happiness of it.
    Growing it continued with i. The passion is still there because i helps friends in making nice dish and it gives me joy seeing them feeling satisified and happy when they eats what i cooked.
    HOW TO DEVELOP MY TALENT INTO SKILLS AND EARNING MONEY WITH IT IN NEXT 5 YEARS.
    I have started developing my talent into skills since my 16 years. I applied to Catering institution for 2 years training where i obtained my certificate as a professional caterer. My plan is to be trained as an event planner who takes charge of events like wedding ceremony, Funeral ceremony, birthday parties etc. When i obtained my Bsc in 2020 by then i would have been grounded in that because now am learning the work under a classic events planner in my town. As we all know most of this events are on saturdays so it do not affect my school activities much.
    I believe that some money i made from my handwork now which i saves in my piggy bank will earn me enough money for acquiring the capitals needed to be a professional event planner by 2022 and by then, i would have been popular in that area.
    By 2023, i would have my office and also have people under me learning to be events planner too. By 2024, with the help of my B.sc and the economics knowledge i acquired in school, i would be seeking for contracts in government parastatal events and big national events as the chief event planner.
    Though the revenue i will earn is not the end itself but a means to an end because the end is to solve societal problem and make people happy but am also sure i will fare good both financially and otherwise in my developed talent.

    In my early days , I derived joy in writing stories and letters to people. In my primary school days I was not living with my parents. I writes letter to my mum weekly informing her about the situation in my school and how I fares in my new environment. My joy about that then is that my mum do reads the letters and replies it as soon as possible. I have once written a letter to the traditional council of my community informing him of the ugly situation of our primary school building and he replied the letter and the building was renovated. I was so happy then that my letters are read and my renovation shows the reply of the letter.
    In my secondary school I was the president of a society called press club society. There we write articles and stories. The best stories or article makes the headline of the day and the writer will come up in the assemble ground and read the story or article. She will be awarded and recognized accordingly. I won the best writer during my last days in secondary school and that have been a motivation since then.
    HOW TO DEVELOP MY TALENT INTO SKILLS FOR IT TO LIFT ME OUT OF POVERTY IN NEXT 5 YEARS.
    After my secondary school, I did not quit my writing career rather I have been working round the clock to improve my writing dexterity. I have been in many writing media groups in social media and I have participated in many online writing competitions. Quit unfortunate I have not won in my any online writing competition because it is international competition and I lacked firsthand information on modality of the competition.
    Currently I have about four articles to publish in the international magazine. One of the articles is titled COLONIALISM IS NOT A BASED GROUND FOR AFRICA TO BE UNDERDEVELOP. The idea of the article is centred on the blaming consciousness of our continent on their colonial masters and their inability to accept and build back the Africa heritages which would have improve our psychological, economical and spiritual mindset and our nonchalant attitude of comfortably sitting in the abyss of our quagmire and keeps. I have reached the foreign magazine for the publishment of the article and they charged me 1000 US dollars. I want more knowledge on research method to give the work a finite econometric finishing for it to be international standard.
    By 2023 I will have my first fiction novel published by the same publishers who is publishing my articles and am going to publish more paper on the way forward for Africans on economic development. Through my hard works and online stories that I will be writing and selling I hope I will earn enough cash to achieve all this

    An assignment: Discuss your talent/skill and how you have planned to use it to create wealth for yourself to liberate you from poverty in the next 5 years (short term) and in the next 10 years (long term).
    LECTURER:DR TONY ORJI

    My name is Nwaforcha Chidinma Lilian and my talent is singing.. The skills I have acquired are catering and tailoring…

    Talents, they say is what you are being gifted, something one is just naturally good at. Singing is something I do all the time and it just flows out of me like I'm not of this world especially when I'm singing one of Nathaniel Bassey songs called "I believe in you" which I must confess is soul lifting. I plan on developing both my talent and skills, for my talent, I will get vocal trainings and other things attach to it. For my skills, I plan on getting more training too because no matter how good one is with his or her skill, things change and people change so is their taste in what they want, buy and consume. There are more than one awesome things under catering like baking, pastry etc. I'm good with the pastry aspect of it and I've being able to raise money for my bills from there, although I'm not into it full time but I plan to.

    How I plan on developing my talent/skill
    One way I can get better is by going for conferences and summit because if I'm to be on top I have to an w the latest and encourage myself to do more as long as it gets me what I want. For singing, I'd get lots of vocal training.

    How I have planned to use it to create wealth for myself to liberate me from poverty in the next 5 years (short term) and in the next 10 years (long term)
    Short term, I'd would say making pastries and supplying it to small scale businesses and get paid for my work and also try get as many customers as possible for the business to flourish. While for long term, I'd open my own catering business after acquiring enough skill to be able to do whatever it is a customer wants and being able to satisfy them…

    It only takes time for these things to come through but with hard work, determination and persistence I'm sure to make it.

    Thank you

    ASSIGNMENT: GETTING OUT OF POVERTY THROUGH TALENT USUAGE AND SKILL ACQUISITION

    Talents are God-given gifts that one is naturally endowed with. Skills are simply the things you learn that enable you to perform certain tasks. Most times they are used interchangeably. You can learn a skill but talents are inborn. As humans we have lots of talents but most people have not discovered theirs. Talents/skills are hidden potentials we use to change the world and therefore should be discovered. Well, I have discovered few of my talents and skills and I am yet to discover more. My talents and skills are:
    • Counselling
    • Hair-making
    • Administrative/Organizational skills

    Medium Term Goals
    I’m so particular about my hair-making and administrative skills. Hair-making is one of those things that gives me joy because it shows forth creativity and also brings forth that ‘smile’ on a woman’s face when the work is done well. Like I always tell people “Hair equates Beauty”, that’s one of my slogan. My medium term goal is to learn more about Hairstyling and go for more trainings. I also want to create a better business flat-form so I can get a larger market. Well, I’m saying this because at this stage I have been able to do some works which has been a good source of income but I need to expand and make the business known to the people. So my plan is to create more social media publicity, with it I would be able to show my works and get my clients as well.
    I have always had Administrative skills but I began to put it to work as I got a position in my church as an Administrator. I have learned and I’m still learning a lot about administration, good enough it’s in line with my field of study which is Economics. My medium term goal is to go for professional/business trainings, further my studies after graduation and also write professional exams (especially ICAN). With these I would enrol in a business firm/organisation where I would be involved in their administration.
    Long Term Goals
    I guess I have not mentioned how I love counselling, well that’s one of my talents. I know that a lot of people are suffering from a lot of things especially depression and I want to be in the position to help some of these people but first I would start with women. Since, I would be entering the Beauty World, it would help me. A lot of women are not so confident about themselves, some of the women don’t know the power we carry as women. Some have problems with the way the look that’s why they can spend a lot just to look beautiful. In the world now, Millions of Dollars are generated from the Beauty Industry. So, in the long term, not only would I want to have a Big Beauty Salon where lots of Hairstyling and production of hair products would be done but I would also have a section in the Industry where women would be empowered and be counselled. We all know that salons are one of the places where women share their secrets and therefore it would be very strategic to counsel women and bring them to the understanding of ‘who the really are’. I would feel so fulfilled when I see women fulfilled(especially with the services I render) and empowered because ‘when you empower a woman, you empower a generation’. So, with this I will not only get income for myself but also be an employer of labour and build a network of confident women that would also reach out to others in the society and their homes too.
    Thank You, Sir.

    By examining Talent, we say that Talent is having a natural ability to be good at something especially without being officially thought about the subject .In other word; talent is inborn in us, while skill is the ability to use an acquired knowledge effectively and readily in execution or performance. Skill can be taught and it's acquirable.
    Coming down to my talent, which is drawing, designing animations, while I was little I use to tell stories in the art of drawing, for every particular scene, I could draw the actions that interpreted the message in the story and this goes on and on, I could design and paint, recently I decided to acquire a skill in fashion designing,
    How do I intend to develop these Talent and Skill?
    • By putting in consideration: that is not neglecting but by showing interest towards this art.
    • By taking bold steps towards creating better ideas such as going through the internet, magazine's finding patterns that could influence my ideas and better chances of bringing out a different designing patterns.
    • It involved practice because there is a saying that practice makes perfection.
    • Also, looking up to some popular fashion designer /artisans in order to get inspired by their works and project and at this, trying to do something different and unique compared to theirs.
    • One important thing is having family and friends giving you encouragement and advice that will push you to keep taking that bold step.
    • By going to places to showcase my skills without being intimidated.
    How will my talent and skill create wealth for me, and take me out of poverty?
    Both fashion designing and drawing goes one sided and probably together because as a fashion designer, you need to be creative in your designs by sketching out patterns and styles that may soot your customers, This intend to create wealth for me if I go into fashion designing professionally, due to the high unemployment rate, being self-employed (entrepreneurship) is a key to eradicating employment problems.

    My Talent
    From my kindergarten, i love it when people taste my food. I started with cooking with sands in my childhood days and i feel happy when my fellow kids taste it. Though i do not know what am doing then, the only thing i feels is the passion and happiness of it.
    Growing it continued with i. The passion is still there because i helps friends in making nice dish and it gives me joy seeing them feeling satisfied and happy when they eats what i cooked.
    HOW TO DEVELOP MY TALENT INTO SKILLS AND EARNING MONEY FROM IT IN NEXT 5 YEARS.
    I have started developing my talent into skills since my 16 years. I applied to Catering institution for 2 years training where i obtained my certificate as a professional caterer. My plan is to be trained as an event planner who takes charge of events like wedding ceremony, Funeral ceremony, birthday parties etc. When i obtained my B.Sc. in 2020 by then i would have been grounded in that because now am learning the work under a classic events planner in my town. As we all know most of these events are on Saturdays so it do not affect my school activities much.
    I believe that some money i made from my handwork now which i saves in my piggy bank will earn me enough money for acquiring the capitals needed to be a professional event planner by 2022 and by then, i would have been popular in that area.
    By 2023, i would have my office and also have people under me learning to be events planner too. By 2024, with the help of my B.sc and the economics knowledge i acquired in school, i would be seeking for contracts in government parastatal events and big national events as the chief event planner.
    Though the revenue i will earn is not the end itself but a means to an end because the end is to solve societal problem and make people happy but am also sure i will fare good both financially and otherwise in my developed talent.

    QUESTION: WRITE DOWN YOUR TALENT AND THE SKILLS YOU HAVE DEVELOPED? HOW DO YOU INTEND TO DEVELOP YOUR TALENT AND SKILLS TO CREATE WEALTH FOR YOU AND TAKE YOU OUT OF POVERTY BETWEEN MEDIUM TERM AND LONG TERM?
    The term “Talent” (or gift, pr aptitude) is the skill that someone has to do something very well that people usually like and that is different.
    The simple English Wikipedia further explain the word “Talent” as the ability that someone is born with. Some people say they are “born with a talent”. People that are talented may have more than one talent.
    While the Cambridge dictionary defined “Talent” as someone who has a natural ability to be good at something, especially without being taught: a person or people with a natural skill or ability.
    CATERING: While growing up I start having interest in catering and other related services to this field, I engage myself in some training and look out to others who do such services to help me learn from them especially my mum, she has always been my source of inspiration and motivation and I learnt a lot from her. During my secondary school days, there are also subject that also helped to broaden my knowledge and understanding about this catering services such as: foods and nutrition and home management but at a point a student is entitled to make choice from the two subject, so I have to go for home management, in this field we are also taught about things related to foods and nutrition. It happened that we later had a practical against our exam for that subject, we all were exposed to a lot of foods and each student is meant to choose one meal and a fruit juice to accompany the meal. We all had a lot that day to prepare, but I had to prepare an appetizing, palatable Jellof rice and orange fruit juice which at the end of the exercise gave me a good score after the exam/competition, not just that we were expose to both tailoring, setting of table, making bids and lots more. Even when I got admission to the university, in my first year I had this roommate that bakes too well, it was also another opportunity to rehearse all I learnt during my secondary school days all this helped me a lot and added to my knowledge. Though I tried enrolling myself into one of the catering schools within the school so to help me rehearse all I learnt and even gain more ideas but due to the economy of the country in terms of financial stability and also time on my part which is due to the field of study I find myself has been a stumbling block /hindrance for me, though in my little Conner I try practice the little I can like baking.
    Moving on to SKILL, skill is the ability to carry out a task with determined results often within a given amount of time, energy, or both.
    As skill is the ability to have knowledge or comprehension of something and do it well.
    At the period I was waiting for my admission I also discovered what can also help to broaden my talent which was INTERNET. I learnt how I can make use of this to advertise my talent to people and the world at large because people need a broad range of skill to contribute to a modern economy, this will also help to expose me and my business to the outside world and take me to places, though I planned going into it fully after my university study because with this am sure to create wealth for myself, with my this talent and skill am sure of taking myself and generation out from poverty.

    HOW I INTEND TO DEVELOP MY TALENT AND SKILL TO CREATE WEALTH FOR ME IN THE MEDIUM TERM (5 YEARS) AND LONG TERM (10 YEARS).
    Growing up as a child, I never knew what one could call a talent or even a skill but I’ve always loved speaking to people (I can remember bringing my siblings together to read out articles and pretend to be a presenter) and equally listening to them share their burdens, ideologies and philosophies about life generally. At first, it seemed weird for a child my age but I guess it was a rare gift. Aside that, fashion was one thing I could kill for, seeing people classically dressed gave me great joy especially with the right cloth combination and colour combination as well. As time went by, I started sorting out clothes for events for my parents, siblings and friends and I always got lots of fashion related questions as well and it really pained me to see people with no or low fashion sense.
    Without paying close attention to this and just living, the clock kept ticking and after my secondary school education, I got admission to study Economics in the university. But what I wanted to do still wasn’t clear to me I just knew I loved fashion, making runway sketches and talking to people. But after my first year, I decided to develop a skill and signing up for a fashion class was a big shot for me, with great enthusiasm and passion I started learning sewing, patterning, fabric sorting, sketching and even how the fashion business operates like meeting elderly women who had been in the field for a while. As time went by, it became clear to me the area of fashion I wanted to go into because the fashion is very broad and it pays according to your level of expertise. I decided to go fully into the African traditional fashion popularly known as “Ankara Fashion” having my own unique designs and making proper use of the social media platforms we have today and as it keeps advancing in showcasing my products (Ankara accessories, clothing and crafts), learning more on how the fashion industry operates from those who have gone far in the field. Also, give out consultancy in choosing outfits for events and proper clothing and colour combinations too. In the long run, I intend to have my own fashion house where we’ll run classes for youngsters with similar passion and coach those who wish to improve their skills in designing.
    Still in school, in order to improve good public speaking skill I made a move and became a member of the Economic Press Association (Ecopress), where my horizon is broadened and I’ve had the opportunity to present before other Pressmen. Although it wasn’t hundred percent the best, I strongly believe Rome wasn’t built in one day. With proper grooming and training, I know I’m becoming a good presenter.

I learnt how I can make use of this to advertise my talent to people and the world at large because people need a broad range of skill to contribute to a modern economy, this will also help to expose me and my business to the outside world and take me to places, though I planned going into it fully after my university study because with this am sure to create wealth for myself, with this my talent and skill am sure of taking myself and generation out from poverty.

    An Assignment Submitted in Partial Fulfillment of the Course Requirement for the Course:Eco361.

    TOPIC: Discuss About Your Talent and Skills; how you intend to develop them and; how they can take you out of poverty.

    Answer:
    1. My Talents and Skills: I have discovered that my natural talent is the gift of Art appreciation. I love literature so much; I can devote a whole day doing literature without feeling bored or hungry. It is something I do without stress and naturally. Am good at making up good stories that can make people around me sit down and listen to the end. I like mimicking what happens in reality in stories. In fact, I have some novels which am still working on in view to publishing them. I love thinking out Movie Ideas too which when related to anyone,it baffles them. One time I told some group that I watched this interesting video that they also need to watch;they asked me what it was about? Then I told them my own movie idea and they all wanted to get the name of the movie not knowing it is just my own idea. I can go crazy with Art. I think it is Life (I.e Art).
    2. How I intend to develop my talent: I develop my talent by reading and appreciating numerous works of art that comes my way. The more art i appreciate,the more love I build towards it. Again, I develop my talent by building my vocabularies through the dictionary and works of professionals in the field of art. These works teach me a lot on how to present my ideas and get people want to hear me until my last word.
    3. How My Talent will take me out of poverty both in the medium term and Long Term: There are so many ways that I can make money from my talent. On the medium term, I intend to get my movie ideas copyrighted and advertised in the pitching market. When a movie idea has been copyrighted, your pitching company advertises it and markets it for you. A movie idea sells for not less than $2000 each. That when changed in my country currency is a quite pretty sum. Also, I compete in short story competitions and literature group works online and offline. This fetches money too. On the long term, I hope to get many of my books published for both online and offline sales. I have started making advances towards publishing my first set of books. When these books are published, if they appeal to a large number of readers, it gets you the recognition and financial boost you deserve. By this way, my talent have taken me out of poverty.

    ASSIGNMENT : DISCUSS YOUR TALENT AND YOUR SKILLS AND HOW DO YOU INTEND TO DEVELOP THEM TO CREAT WEALTH AND WIE OUT POVERTY

    First we have to define what talent and skills? Talent is a natural ability which someone has. Skills is the knowledge and capacity to do something perfectly. Also talent is inbuilt but skills required practice to acquire it. I believe everyone in this world he talent but meanwhile let’s discuss my own talent and skills.
    My developed talent is dancing and sports ( hand ball) I have passion for this two talent even since I was a kid especially dancing I want to be a bad dancer like I always say. . I joined a dancing crew in my school and also participated in my school cultural dance. My parents knew how much they means to me especially dancing so they allow me to participate. I can skip my sport training but my dancing training I don’t joke with it. I put my life into it. I go street carnival and dance seeing my friends and the crowd yelling my name boost my head because as for that moment I felt like a celebrity (smile) and I do go for dancing competition I love dancing.
    My developed skills, at time goes by, as the girl was going I noticed that I had to add some skills to my talent help out in the family. I had to go and learn some skills acquisitions after my secondary school. I learnt how to produce liquid soap, detergent, sampo and conditioner etc. I start making my supplies to stores. From my profit I sent myself to Computer lesson to have Some knowledge about it, after my lesson I applied for monogram and digital or heat transfer work where I designed in computer and print it out in a machine. This designs involves companies logo, school logo, hotel and church logo. Which is been printed on T-shirt, polo, towels and other wears. I have been doing this job before I got admission into university and it has been paying my school fees and other malleolus expenses. I also prints invitation cards, and design on wrist band.
    HOW I INTEND TO DEVELOP MY TALENTS AND SKILLS TO CREAT WEALTH AND WIPE OUT POVERTY
    First I had to finish my education here in university and get my B. S. C. as an economist then get a job in a company to help them know how the economy will affect their business and how to maximize their profit to help create more wealth in the society and company . Also from my salary or loan which I will borrow from bank (that is if I had no job but I pray I will have.)will first open a monogram company and employ people to create employment and wipe away poverty. After that I will open a dance school where kids or children who has passion for dance like myself will come and learn have feel the joy ND love of dance.
    Thank you sir.

    ASSIGNMENT: Write your talent and the skill you have developed and how you intend to develop them to help you create wealth and take out poverty from your life in the medium term and long-run.
    A talent is a marked natural ability or skill to be good at something especially without being taught, whereas a skill is a practical knowledge, a capacity to do something well; technique, ability. Skills are usually acquired or learned, as opposed to abilities (talent) which are often thought of as innate. Talents are usually in born and are developed over time through individual effort via constant practice.
    My talents include childcare, teaching (children mostly) and the skills I have acquired include make up artistry, tailoring (still a work in progress though), choreographing, manufacturing of house hold items like dish washer, hair shampoo and conditioner, bleach e.c.t.
    Childcare is the act, practice occupation of supervising and taking care of young children. Growing up, I discovered I had an exceptional love for children (especially babies) and I was also great at taking care of them which I did without much fuss. Due to financial constraints presently I just watch over kids for their parents for a considerable sum of money although, I plan on establishing a crèche where nursing mothers who are also career women could drop off their children when going to work or just mothers in general. And they will pay for the services rendered on a monthly or weekly basis. The crèche will accommodate various ages of children and they will also be thought a variety of artistic things like singing, dancing, painting and acting in line with the recommended academic curriculum.
    Makeup artistry is the process of applying cosmetics; colorants and other substances to the skin to improve its appearance. As a makeup artist, I have been able to see how large the market is because girls always want to look their best for parties and occasions mostly on weekends, and I have been able to make a reasonable sum of money from it. In the long run, I plan on partnering with a friend to create and run a beauty studio which will offer various services such as makeup artistry, hair making, pedicure and manicure, dress making and all things beauty etc. because the market for beauty is large and it keeps growing.
    The aforementioned is a conceived way to bring me out of the poverty circle and also reduce the unemployment line, thereby leading to a reasonable level of economic growth and development of the country.

    ANSWER
    Talent is a natural ability to be good at something, especially without been taught. In other words a talent (or gift, or aptitude) is the skill that someone have to do something very well that people that others cannot do. It is also an ability that someone is born with. While skill means to have knowledge or comprehension about something.
    My talents are:
    . Ability to work under pressure,
    . Self-motivation,
    . Adaptability,
    . Decision making.
    While my skills are:
    Pedicure and manicure. Thought I will also like to learn baking and web design.
    Pedicure is the superficial cosmetic treatment of the fit and toenail. While manicure is the cosmetic treatment for the finger nails. This is a school environment and majority of the students care so much about their nails both fingers and toe. Using this as an advantage as I have acquired this skill I can use it to create wealth and remove poverty in my life in the short-run by starting up a small business in campus which include fixing of nails, designing of nails even applying of nail polish for beautification and it may not even require a shop an assistance just myself and my working tools. By so doing I do be able to create wealth and still have time for my studies because the manicure and pedicure does not require a lot of time. With my talent of self-motivation I do be able to motivate myself by myself without waiting for someone else to do that for me. And with my ability of working under pressure, I do be able to do my work with no panic when a customer is trying to pressure maybe due to time or doing exactly what she wants. With this I do be able to do my work effortlessly and make money/create wealth while doing it in the short-run.
    In the long-run I do want to expand this business by owning a big shop where I do pedicure and manicure (fixing of nails, polishing and designing of nails) and also be able to educate/teach people who do want to learn about it. In this case I do need to employ people by so doing creating wealth for the economy. And using my talent such as ability to work under pressure, decision making, and self-motivation to run the business effortlessly and still create wealth and remove poverty from my life in the long-runs.

    Talent is an inherent ability to do something possessed by a person naturally which he or she do the best without putting extra efforts into it. Skills refer to an ability or an expertise in performing a task, obtained by a person through systematic learning, practice or experience.
    My talent is acting which I discovered right from my primary school days, I do not actually have a skill now but I have plan of acquiring one which is fashion and designing immediately after my youth service.
    Than how my talent and skill will come together to fetch me money in the next five years is knowing full well that fashion and designers needs to be social in the sense that it will help me to create awareness about that my skill which is fashion and designing. Like for instance, if am asked to bake cake for wedding ceremony, which am suppose to explain to the guest how the cake was baked and the meaning of the colors used in baking the cake, due to that I am talented in acting which has also made me to be social, it will help me in explaining how the cake was baked and then the meaning of the colors used. So being able to explain my work as a fashion and designer with the help of my talent acting will make my skill to be unique and different from others thereby bringing more customers which will lead to my talent and my skill fetching me money.

    Topic: discuss your talent and skill and how you intend to develop this talent and skill to create wealth for you and take you out of the poverty circle in the medium term and long term.

    I discovered i could write in the year 2015 when i was dared/ pursuaded by a friend who's a writer to send him a piece. I scribbled something just because i read a quote somewhere which stated "if you are asked if you can do something, say yes even if you cant, and learn along the way". Subsequently, i birthed more pieces Which interestingly are being appreciated by various individuals. Currently i run a facebook page by the name scarz and on instagram scarz_to_stars, crossing fingers, hoping that my work will reach out to the undiluted depth of the earth.

    I have tried developing various skills such as hair making,barbing etc but nothing gets me excited as much as business modeling and planning does. I have a vision of being a business analyst, buying and resurrecting dead business, investing in peoples ideas, basically anything to help a business grow. I know becoming a business analyst entails a cobweb of skills such as marketing skill, communication skill,knowledge in accounting etc.

    I would love to tell you i have a well laid plan on how to combine my skill and talent to create wealth for myself, but i don't, all i have are scattered sketches called ideas in my head. What i am sure of though, is that, my talent "writing" will definitely help "my then" acquired skill,that is, business modeling, by creating platforms where I will able to help young minds build their dreams and ideas , while writing will definitely help with the linguistic aspect of business modeling.

    Hopefully, with time these ideas will no longer be scattered sketches and will rather become the blue-print of my destiny.

    Topic: Discuss Your Talents and Skills and how you intend to develop them and use them to escape poverty.

    1. My Talent and Skills: The Skills I have are Tailoring and Hair dressing. The dominant of them is Tailoring. I learnt how to sow clothes after my secondary school and up till now, I still devote some of my time to making some of the clothes I wear by myself. Tailoring is interesting. The cost of making a clothe is relatively cheap. Most of the clothes I wear are locally made by tailors who I do help out in one way or the other. So in appreciation for my assistance, they normally sow clothes for free for me, provided I buy the clothing materials. Also, I know how to plait hair and pretty do it well. I plait most of my friends hair and they offer a thank you in appreciation.
    2. How I intend to develop my skills and use them to escape poverty: I have plans of still learning Tailoring and hair dressing up to a professional level. Upon my graduation and service, I will go for and extensive training in Tailoring. When I must have been certified to be good at it, then I will look to establishing my own business of clothe making. In the medium term, I hope to make money by making clothes for people and charging them for my services. In the long term, I hope to get contracts from schools and groups for a bulk request. I also wish to go into commercial clothing where I will make large number of clothing styles and designs and supply to sellers. With a quality clothe and being relatively cheaper than already made clothes, I will have large customers patronizing my line. Not only has my talent elevated me out of poverty, it has also encouraged patronage to locally made clothes instead of imported ones. I believe that by so doing, I have added my own quota to the development of my country’s economy.

    MY TALENT/SKILL AND HOW I HOPE TO USE IT TO CREATE WEALTH AND DEVELOP THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY WITHIN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS (SHORT TERM) AS WELL AS WITHIN THE NEXT TEN YEARS (LONG TERM).
    TALENT: talent is God given. Talent is not skill. A skill is developed by practicing but talent is inborn. The question is how do we identify our various talents and what do we achieve with these talents when we discover them? Mind you, every human is born with a talent but not every human discover their talents before they die!
    I’m a beautiful bold black girl, one who is blessed to have discovered her talent. Please join me as I unfold my talents and how I intend to make good use of it and create wealth while leaving a positive impact as well.
    A skill is the capability to carry out a task efficiently and effectively with a given amount of time, energy or both while, talents are natural abilities that becomes a skill when properly developed and harnessed. Skills acquisition are needed for individual and national development. Borrowing from Walter Rodney (1972:1) definition of development as "increased skill and capacity, greater freedom, creativity, self-discipline, responsibility and material well-being", it is necessary to distinguish between hard and soft skills. Both skill sets are complementary and relevant to the overall development of an individual. Hard skills are specific knowledge and abilities that are learned through education or training. Examples include ICT skills, artisanship etc. Soft skills on the other hand are people skills that derives from personality traits and they are usually not quantifiable unlike hard skills. Examples include communication skills, emotional quotient etc.
    AM A TALENTED BUSINESS MAN AND A SKILLFUL CHEFF
    The act of doing business has been what I have engaged in since my young age. I discovered my business ability at a very tender age probably at the age of 4 or less, reason might be because I am the last born in my family and spend so much time in my mum’s business place. As I grow up, the acumen to do business keep growing with me and till date am still heading my brother’s business and I look forward to having my own business anytime soon before or after graduation.
    On the other hand, I have developed cooking skill. On the quest to eliminate poverty and enhance living standard in my family, I joined catering company during my secondary school days and ever since then has developed a good skill and love for cooking and events.
    This special skill has promoted me to the post of assistant manager in my company and has made me travel to almost all the states in Nigeria (especially southern).
    Conclusively, in the long run, I wish to have my own catering group/company alongside my business and make life more comfortable.

    MY SKILL AND TALENT AS AN IMPORTANT TOOL FOR POVERTY ALEVIATION.
    ASANTE (1991) skill acquisition will help to reduce the poverty rate if people are trained in diverse areas and in turn create wealth for themselves and their immediate environment. Noe etal (2003) suggest that enabling the individual to acquire skill can make him bring about good innovations, good performance, self respect and improvement in their lives. Breach, A.O (1990) recommends that the best way to empower a people is through skill acquisition which is a process of enlarging people choices for a long and healthy life, knowledge acquisition and access to resources needed for a decent standard of living.
    It is from the word of this distinguish persons that I draw my inspiration that my skill and talent can serve as important tools for poverty alleviation. Hence, I would like to tell in subsequent paragraph my skill and talent and how they can have alleviated poverty for me. To start with, I am a chef as I have acquired a skill in culinary. This skill is of utmost importance to me because I find passion in doing it and I always know its something I want to take to another level.
    Also, I have a talent of singing and this is what I enjoy doing the most because it helps me think straight. Although, I am more of a gospel singer than a circular one because I started from my childhood to sing despite the fact that I always shy away from it and each time I do this people tend to get blessed. Notwithstanding I also have a talent in acting which has enabled me gain grounds in public speaking and has built this confidence in me that allows mw face great deal of audience
    With cooking as my skill and my talent of singing and acting, I intend pushing it to the next level because I really want to be an employer of labor and reduce the unemployment in Nigeria. In the next 5 years to come, I am looking at opening up an eatery for all classes of people where there will be no segregation.i want to also push my music career to another another level because there is a payment called honorarium.although that shouldn’t be the brain behind any ministration but its also a way of keeping both the body and mind busy and this can In turn improve my standard of living.

    First of all, I would like to state clearly the meaning of the word talent. What is talent? According to oxford advanced learners dictionary, talent is a desire or inclination for something.
    Having known the meaning of talent, let me go further by discussing the talent I have got and how I will develop it to create wealth for myself and take me out of poverty.
    Talents is one of the God’s given natural resources to mankind and each individual has at least one whether the person has developed his or hers.
    The talent I have, the thing I know I can do over and over again without getting tired of and I really know and believe am proud of doing is playing football. I have grown to love playing football that I get excited at everything about football and get fascinated and eager to show off my talent, any day and anytime.
    For years now, I have nurtured this thought inside me how am going to improve in my talent and how am going to develop it to create or be creating wealth for me and take me out of poverty in years to come.
    Playing football has become one of the things that I can’t stop doing irrespective of the fact that I have not mastered the skills and tactics of playing but I know that with time I will improve. Few years ago, I enrolled in an academy to enable me to improve and develop new skills in playing football and I believe, hopefully, that in the next five to ten years to come, I will be a skillful player. When I will finally attain such height in football of master the skills in playing, I can now look for a club to play for maybe in Nigeria or outside Nigeria, probably Europe.

    I believe everyone has a unique skills and talents and that is what makes each one of us special. Talent is a natural ability while a skill is a something we learnt that we are so good at. People have skills or talents in areas such as singing, hairdressing, teaching acting and many more. People realize their talents or learn three skills at different stages in their lives. Giving back to the community by sharing the skill I have is what makes the difference. Everyone has at least one thing they are really good at. I’m proud to say that my special talents are singing and teaching.
    Ever since I was a child, singing has always been one of my talents and I realized that it makes me happy. I actually started singing properly in my Junior Secondary school when my classmates then formed a singing group, the Pristine; just for fun. Though I joined reluctantly but from there, I actually realized that I have a talent for singing. I intended to develop my talent so as to create wealth for myself and take me out of poverty by going for some singing competitions like the MTN project fame where I would also be groomed more in singing and also get to compete with my fellow inmates for a prize.
    I have also been fortunate and blessed with the skill of teaching and out of the goodness of my heart, I like to give back to the community. I was admitted into the department of education economics and here, the educational practioners and the professors educate us on the skills of how to teach, how to use instructional materials in the course of our teachings, how to use evaluation method to access our students and many more. Also, as a test of how far I have learnt have learnt the skill of teaching, I went for a teaching practice in a secondary school where I was the ss3 economics teacher. So far, a few weeks of doing the teaching practice, consistently, it’s becoming part of me. I planned to create wealth foe myself through teaching by opening up schools especially secondary schools so as to inculcate values to the society because it gives me joy.
    God has given each and every one of us a gift of unique talent and skills. We can come together and use our gifts to help or families, communities and the world. We can make a positive difference in the lives of others.

    Discuss your talent and developed skill and how you intend to use your talent and skill to take you away from poverty.

    What is talent?
    Talent is just a natural aptitude skill.
    Just as every child is blessed with different talents by God. And so many have used their talent to achieve great accomplishments in life. As a child, there have been a great bond between football and myself. Football has always been part of my life. The passion I I've for football is not ordinary. Without mincing words, if they is any talent of mine which I know about must be playing football. Growing up back then in my neighborhood every kid around just want to play football just for fun but I have always seen in me the zeal to play football professionally. With the level of effort I have channeled into this talent, I have been so privileged to play in places and with people I thought it will take longer time to play with.
    How I intend to use my talent to create wealth for myself
    Still in school at the age of 21, is not an encouraging way for anybody with this talent as mine. Because football deals with age. Well, after my first degree programme, I intend to travel out of the country to Europe and get into one of the football academy of some of the big football clubs in Europe like Bayern munchen, Barcelona, Manchester city etc. getting into an academy brings me closer to utilizing my talent. Then within the period of 2 years in the academy with serious yardwork and dedication from me, I strongly believe that I will be called up to the clubs first team to start my career as a professional footballer.
    Also with God's grace and determination in my late 20s I believe I will be ranking among the best players in Europe. Then as a successful player with many trophies to my name for both club and country, this will cause my worth in the transfer market to increase also leading to increase in my salary also my daily and weekly allowances. And at this point in time I will fall back to my acquired skill in business and invest my resources in various types of businesses especially opening a wine store in Italy and Portugal for period of time i will be in Europe. Then also I intend to open a clothing line in Nigeria and also a big restaurant. And this is how I intend to use my talent and developed skill to make poverty have no other choice than to flee…

    Assignment: How do you intend to develop your talent and skills to create Wealth and take me out of poverty for medium term (5years) and long term (10years)

    According to wikipedia, talent is an ability that someone is born with. It is the natural ability to be good at something especially without being taught. To my own understanding talent means being good in a certain activity without actually learning or acquiring it.
    Skill is a learnt ability and can be developed in someone if he/she puts its time and efforts in it. The efforts need to be voluntary,systematic and sustained.
    As a young girl i was born with this instinctual talent of dancing, i pick up routines quickly and i continue to develop my talent over the years,turning myself into an established and respected dancer. However with classes,dedication,practice, hardwork and motivation my talent becomes an advantage.
    I possess skills like catering,fashion designing and modeling. As a young girl always love to bake with my mom then after my secondary school i develop my skill of bakery by perfecting it,then i start my fashion designing tutor which i embrace the new styles of designs and sewing of cloth since majority of people love to wear sown clothes. By modeling and advertising the outfits i can as well be paid well.
    I can take out poverty for medium or long term year: first by creating awareness of my skills on social media and any other platform.
    Second by getting myself a place where i can render my services to the people.
    Third by creating job opportunity for people and get apprentice that can learn from me.

  113. Talent can also be inclined as a skill and the imagination to produce something new or a work of art .it is also something that is inherent in all humans and therefore has a universal distribution .it can be likened to Talent is defined as a desire or inclination for something .so as an individual ,I discovered that my talent is focused on self-management because it enables me all the time to be creative in life whereby creativity is the ability to bring something new into existence .it emphasizes on a phenomenon on whereby a person creates something new such as a product ,a solution, a work of art et.c that has some kind of value and this a reference to the individual creator within which the novelty occurs.
    a driving force that drives human behaviours to shape their lives .it utilizes time and space to fashion out something that will fill in the gap or solve problems.
    From a scientific point of view, talent is studied from the perspective of behavioural psychology, social psychology, psychometrics, cognitive science, artificial intelligent aesthetics, history, economics, design research, business and management among others.
    My talent is something that have given me the ability to think divergently or differently, because it gives me an opportunity to generate new and lot of ideas, flexibility as opposed to rigidity assistance and link facts, brainstorm, analyse and incubate. It has encouraged me on behaviour in works and life which suggests to me on how to start a business or improve the performance of a business or observe relevant role models because I believe that in a few years to come it will help to play an important role in the economic growth and development of my living and that of the nation because it is a purposeful activity that includes an initiation, promotion and distribution of wealth and services.
    However, my talent is something that have made me to understand that I am uniquely made by God and so my talent is inherent in me and therefore it got me the right level of interest that could make me pursue my dreams, improve my life and create a business, create some combinations that did not previously exist which create an impression in my heart to find a need and fill it.
    Traditionally, it have narrowed down and broader the concept of my educational effort towards developing a self -reliant and enterprising people which is associated with self-enrichment and growth of the nation.it also tend to boost my ego in the desire for success because I am driven by a strong desire to control both my venture and my destiny and this internalized the locus of controlled spills over into a pre occupation with controlling everything.
    Finally, my talent as a self-management which is inherent in me have bring to my notice the importance of being creative which in this conceptual age is what i need to foster and encourage right-directed thinking (representing creativity and emotion) over left-directed thinking (representing logical, analytical thought). It has also helped in establishing purpose and intention, building basic skills, encouraging acquisition of domain-specific knowledge stimulating and rewarding curiosity and exploration, building motivation especially internal motivation encouraging confidence and a willingness to take risks, focusing on mastery and self-competition, promoting supportable beliefs about creativity, providing opportunities for choice and discovery for providing balance which I believe will help to me financially balanced in few years to come and also help to enhance economic growth and development because a good standard of living of citizens promotes economic growth and development.

    Question
    Discover your talent, develop it with your skills you have acquired and discuss how you intend to use your talent and skills to create wealth for you and take you away from poverty between five to ten years and above
    Answer
    Talent is a marked natural ability or skill which we are also passionate about. Most people have more than one talent. Some of this talent includes singing, dancing, drawing, cooking, styling e.t.c I have two of such talents which are styling and cooking, though I see cooking as a hobby than a talent.

    I focus more energy on cooking than styling because my passion for cooking is greater than that of styling, though I think it is mainly because I am an African lady and I am obligated to cook daily. I discovered my love for cooking at a very young age. when I was Eight years old, I remembered Burning myself with pot whie cooking. I have always had a listening hear for new kind of food, sometimes I would find myself asking people how they prepare a particular kind of food. Right now I am so passionate about cooking I can't see a new food and not try it out.
    Developing this talent of mine is way more easy because of the fact that it is the normal obligation of an African lady to cook. I tend to try out new recipes every once in a while, I follow food bloggers on social media, download applications that gives step by step instructions on how to prepare different dishes and when I visit new places I tend to learn how to prepare their different local dishes.
    Skills: I prefer to say that skills is what sets ones talent apart from the rest. Skills is the reason why they say "go and ask him/her to teach you how to do it"
    Though cooking is my talent, I and my pot make magic but another thing I have passion for is Fashion. My passion for fashion cannot be over emphasis. I can't see a fashion magazine and look away, growing up I will always sit in front of my moms sewing machine and dreamt of styling clothes for my toys. I would cut old pieces of cloth and styles clothes for all my toys.
    I learnt the basics in styling clothe from 2013-2014. Presently I am making plans to buy a sewing machine for myself so that I would practice more on my own to improve myself. I also have plans to focus more on drawing out design better (improve my drawing skills in mapping out designs) and after my First degree I will go fully into mastering the art of designing for 6 months or more. After that I will establish myself ( full time fashion designing.
    I will take a step further to start a Fashion School and maybe after a year I will employ my best students as teachers, build fashion schools across the country. Thereby taking myself out of poverty and creating job opportunities for fashion designers, model, marketers an a whole lot of people. I will also do seminar so as to enlighten people on how on can create wealth for themselves through skills aquistion and most especially through fashion designing.
    I think with this little note of mine I have explained how to develop my skills and create wealth for myself and the society at large. Don't forget "having knowledge of a thing is different from being an expert". Don't just acquire the knowledge, be an expert(use your hands and brain, not just your brain).

    1. Become a Sample Maker
    A sample maker sews the design from the pattern and notes any flaw before the pattern is approved for production. A sample maker helps prevent waste and problems. A sample maker is usually an expert at sewing different type of products and can sew three fully lined jackets in a day.

    2. Sewing Online Video Courses
    I will love to pass on my knowledge and experience to others via online video tutoring.

Ensure that am located close to fashion houses or boutiques.
    4. Uniforms
    There are so many institutions where uniforms are worn, prisons, factories, medical institutions, private schools etc.i will b lucky if i venture into this niche. However, this is a large scale business that would require me to hire more hands as this kind of job usually comes with a deadline.
    If i intend to start this kind of business, i will need to send a colourful brochure that shows some of my works with an introductory letter to organizations i intend to work with.
    5. Sewing Blog
    Another way to project my image out there is to start a sewing blog. my sewing blog can be a source where my audience comes to seek for new ideas on how to sew patterns, make crafts and generally find inspiration. my blog can make some side money for me if am consistent in putting up new posts daily, every two days or weekly. Once consistency is achieved, plus a large followership base, i can then approach fashion houses, schools, merchants dealing in fabrics, and even other type of businesses and pitch to them on why they should advertise in my blog.

    MY IDENTIFIED TALENT AND SKILL
    Talent is a special ability that allows one to do something well and skill is the ability to do something that comes from training, experience or practice. Two of my identified talent and skill that can create wealth for me are fashion designing and makeup artistry. I have identified other talents too such as the ability to make people laugh and counsel but i will only discuss the two above. Fashion designing is the art of applying design aesthetics and natural beauty to clothing while make-up artistry is the art of applying make-up (cosmetics) on people often with the intention to beautify. One of the things I discovered while growing up was that I had a flair for colors. I loved to draw and color different patterns of clothes.
    During my childhood days, I was gifted dolls by my aunty. The dolls had dresses on, but with time, the dresses became worn out. I had to cut pieces of fabric from my old clothes and make dresses for the dolls with just needle, thread and scissors. Because of how beautiful and well fitted the clothes were on the dolls, I became so fascinated in making dresses for the dolls,that I had to start visiting the tailor's shop in our street to pick pieces of colorful fabrics cut out from sewn clothes. As time went on, I started drawing designs of dresses to be made for my dolls in a jotter. Sometimes, I will draw models wearing the dresses.
    When I entered the university, I discovered that the next best thing that had to do with color painting and fashion designing was make-up. I picked up interest in it. I started watching make-up tutorial videos on YouTube and any platform available. I practiced with my face and any of my friend's face that cared to volunteer. I devoted time toward mastering the art of make-up, which was not hard for me since I already had that ability to match colors and create artistic work. I perfected my skill and started beautifying people especially during matriculations, convocation, date nights and other special occasions. I had to start fixing/charging money for it since ineeded to upgrade my makeup toolbox. I even had to come up with a brand name "COLOURPLAY BY NANCY" because of the popularity I was fast gaining.
    HOW I INTEND TO CREATE WEALTH WITH THIS SKILL IN THE NEXT FIVE(5) YEARS
    Although I have already started getting income from my make-over business, meager as it is for now. I want to still develop and expand my skill. My medium term goal is to acquire more skills that goes with being a beautician such as tying of gele (African head wrap), styling of hairstyles, reigniting and developing my fashion designing ability e.t.c. I have already created a page with my brand name on Facebook to upload my work. I know social media is a powerful tool for advertising one's work and reaching a multitude of people at a very short period, hence I intend to make good use of it. I have already started getting clients from Facebook who visit my profile and view my works. I have travelled to different cities in Enugu where i live to make brides up for their wedding. After I graduate, I plan to go for a professional makeup training at "tintsmakeuppro studio", a popular lagos-based celebrity make-up studio. After which I hope to open my own beauty shop and clothing line thereby creating wealth for my family and I (My long term goal).

    I have so many ways which I can create wealth with it in the next 5 to 10 years to come. It can be by going for all these well known dancing competitions to win high prices. Then the process of winning those high prices, can start up dancing studios within or outside the country for young people who wishes or have the passion for dance.

    ASSIGNMENT QUESTION:
    Discuss your talent and the skill you have developed and how you plan to develop it to create wealth for you and take you out of poverty in the next 5 years.

    ANSWER
    Good day Mr. President, my name is Nwosu Samantha Adaobi, And I’ll be discussing my talent and skill and how I intend to develop it and also use it in creating wealth for myself.
    First , Talent is a natural aptitude or skill, while skill is the ability to do something well.
    My talent is art,that is I have an artistic ability. All my life I’ve been surrounded by people who know how to beautify themselves and other people. My mum for instance, always loved making herself up and dressing her hair and nails her self and anytime she was doing those things i watched her and subconsciously I was learning. I had dolls that I always loved beautifying, and at a young age I subconsciously practiced with my dolls. But I won’t call it a talent because it has elements of Skill. For instance, in football some people have the talent of playing very well but if they don’t learn and practice those basic techniques in it then of course they would have limited skill. But if their education incorporates those techniques and skill, they would become skillful.
    I have a natural talent to be a creative makeup artist and beautician (which is art). That is I am very good with makeup, hair styling, nails makings etc. And I have always known it was my talent because I never went to school for it, I just had passion in creating and hand making things on people especially women . And over time I have added some techniques I learned to it , I go on the internet to watch professional makeup tutorials and learn different ways in applying makeup, I follow the professional makeup artists on instagram and on blogs to get the newer updates on makeup and beauty as a whole.
    Secondly, How do I plan on developing it and creating wealth for me?
    The development of my talent turned skill has already started. I’m always on the internet watching new techniques from pro Beauty Enthusiasts on how they do their makeup on themselves and clients. At some point I’ll go to a professional cosmetology school to perfect my skill and hopefully have a degree in that field, because a certificate will make my rank in the beauty industry to be high and it will also take me places I never imagined and bring top celebrities and people from different part of the world to work with me. And also I’ll keep practicing on myself and people so I become perfect in my craft .
    With all this development I’ll have to promote my skill that is ,show the world what I can do and with the help of social media (I.e Facebook, Instagram , advertisements, fliers, peoples recommendations etc) people see my craft/skill and they will get interested and they will want me to work on them and the awareness continues. I intend to be very consistent so as to develop my skill and make my work outstanding. With this I’ll start making it a profession not a talent or skill because people who are interested in my work would start paying for my services. For Example, A newly wedded bride, a birthday celebrant, a tv host, an actress, a politician, a wedding guest etc are my target clients because they would pay well. And once I start earning a nice sum of money , I’ll start saving and as my skill develops my pay increases, my clients increase too. I will also go as far as having makeup classes monthly which I would also earn from because the students will pay me for my services . Overtime my pay consistently increase and Within the space of 5 to 10 years with consistent hard-work , I will be a multi millionaire award winning makeup artist.

    Talents are special abilities that allow someone to do something well. It allows you do things with ease and those things come naturally to you with little or no effort or struggle. I believe everyone has one or more talents deposited in them by God. For a while now I've been wondering and pondering on what my talent is. I've looked critically and myself and I've come to discover that I am well in drawing and designing anime characters. I've always been fascinated by the world of anime since I was little. The storylines, the characters, the graphics, everything. Drawing and designing characters and making small short stories in my head gives me joy and it comes so naturally to me. I've taken steps to develop this by self improvement, i.e learning and developing this by all means available to me. The leading animes right now generate a ton of income for their owners .The world of anime is very vast and if with dedication and devotion Im able to venture into it and make my debut I believe it will generate amiable income for me.
    Talent aside I have had the opportunity of learning and developing some skills. At the moment I'm doing my best to develop the skill of public speaking and research by joining a group which goes by the name policy analysis and research group (PARG). They carry out research and presentations as part of their programs and I believe that as I actively participate in this that I will surely develop this skill.
    I've also learnt the skill of furniture making though I'm still at an apprentice level at the moment. I can make, chairs, tables, kitchen cabinets, coupling of wardrobes etc. In five years I would have developed this skill to a professional level. I can also operate chief architect premiere which is a software for making 3d architectural drawings though this is still also at an amateur level.
    I believe in the long run I will open a furniture company whose goal will be to make long lasting and beautiful furnitures and in my own way assist in the economic growth and development of the economy.

    Talent: A special natural ability or aptitude or is something we do naturally. For example my talent is drawing. In another words, talent can seen as a natural ability to excel at a duty or action. Talent is a set of personal characteristics that enhance one’s ability to achieve expertise in an accelerated manner (Jonathan- Black, 2013). These traits allow one to improve at quicker rates than others in their field that are at the same level of expertise/fitness/skill, etc. This is because talent is one’s ability to adapt to training and develop skills in their specialized field. Talent exists when strong genetics and a desire to practice come together to create superior ability for a specific activity. It can only exist along with a deliberate interest. Because of this, talent will often only become apparent after a moderate amount of practice as this is when one’s ability to adapt and improve is more clearly visible. Talent is not merely one’s “base” ability at a task, this comes about often as a result of exposure to skills and experiences in one’s early days. Talent is the eventual potential of an individual in a certain endeavor. It’s not how good one is right away, it’s how good one can become in a perfect world. The most important subcategories of talent are probably:
    1) Innate (before training) ability
    2) The mental and physical capabilities to spend time and effort trying to improve: not losing motivation, getting injured etc. (Although mental toughness and injury resilience can be improved, there is a talent component to both.)
    3) The amount of improvement that happens with a given amount of practice i.e. the ability of the body to adapt or the mind to master
    Success is a product of talent and environment. The realization of one’s full talent is extremely rare and relies heavily on being in an optimal environment, plus a great deal of luck. According to Richard “Access to talented and creative people is to modern business what access to coal and iron ore was to steel-making. Talented people are attracted to cities with status, amenities, creativity and creative energy, diversity, and quality of place.
    Skill is something that we learn. Skills are developed. You might attend training to learn a skill. You will practice that skill. You can master a skill such that it appears to be a talent. This might be a hard skill like programming, hardware design, technical writing, web design, content marketing,
    One of the first things a child that is talented in drawing can do is pick up a pencil and start drawing. And as new technologies are becoming much more accessible to children and their families, they bring with them new ways to learn important creative skills. I see drawing as one of the most fundamental of these skills, here are just some of the reasons on to alleviate poverty through drawing;Drawing is one of the early foundations of logical thinking or abstract thought. Whether your child is still at home with you or at school already, drawing helps them prepare for understanding more difficult concepts. Learning these creative ways of thinking at an early age readies a child for future education. Provide your kids with a variety of materials to draw with, for example crayons, paint, chalk and don’t forget digital media tools too, to help them get used to the tablets and other computers that they’re sure to use frequently in the future.

    Problem of individual in the economy or society. We cannot eradicate poverty but poverty can be parented to somvextent so that the number of people being poor can be reduced and such can describe or as ribosome nations to be developed. Countries e.g. of nation that need o improve the statidard of living of its people or in members is Nigeria.

Creativity means making something different from what have existed. For one to creative it requires more efforts on my parts blue the economy is big and some producers tends to enter into the market since it is perfectly computer market. Advancement in technology shows how I can be able to know when new products have entered and also being able to take such advantage. Through the process of advancement in technology one can intimidate or form your customers of the new products, and lead to an increase in your cash flow. Another means is my paying my tax to the government to that they can use it to provide social goods to the society and to the poor ones.

    My identified talent and skills and how I can use it to create wealth for myself and to solve the problem of poverty in society as a whole.
    God bestows every individual with one talent or the other in other to help him or her achieve his purpose here on earth. Talents by Advance learners dictionary is A marked natural ability or skill and skill according to advanced learners dictionary means ”to set apart or separate from others, to discern , to have knowledge to understanding, to know how to, to have comprehension discern, to have a personal or practical knowledge.
    It can be said that talent is that innate ability one has to do things better than others. In other words it can be said to be that natural ability which a person is born with, which makes him different from his contemporaries, while skills is that knowledge acquire by a person through constant training and practice. At first I though I was doing it for fun but after a while I noticed that every one who taste any meal prepared by me will also ask me my recipe and always wanting to eat more both the male and female gender both the young and the old who I fee should a better cook than my self ended up asking me how I make this meal.
    Having discovered this talents I intend to set up a catering school where I can train both young girls and older ladies in being a better cook not only for family consumption but also for earning a living. By so doing this young female end up paying for the service being rendered to them and in this aspect cash is remitted into my account making it possible for me to be able to meet my own private need and execute future. Also looking at our world of 21st century we noticed that most women no longer want to take up their responsibility in the kitchen rather they prefer taking their household to restaurant and to eat or they make others to be brought to them in their respective homes capitalizing on the need of the society I intend using my talent cooking which I have developed into a skill to help the society by providing tis service to them and also it will serve as means for a better tomorrow of living out of poverty. I intend to equip my restaurant with modern facilities in order to make the customers more comfortable and relaxed to ensure constant patronage from them ofcus I know that there is a lot of restaurant in every nookand cranny in this country where individuals and household can go to for their meal, but this is where my knowledge as an economist comes to play I leant branding and packing and that’s why people in the competitive market still survive. So with my knowledge of branding and packaging I am able to differentiate my services from others in the society. I also intend to differentiate my my method of service delivery by including children section in the restaurant, by children section I mea where the children can come and play some game and this will entice them and they would always want their parents to bring them. Therefore I belive that with these ideas and with the capital I can use my talents whichi have developed into a skill to better my tomorrow and escape poverty in my future.

    TALENT
    Talent is God given. Talent is not skill. A skill is developed by practicing but talent is inborn. The question is how do we identify our various talents and what do we achieve with these talents when we discover them? Mind you, every human is born with a talent but not every human discover their talents before they die!
    I’m a beautiful bold black girl, one who is blessed to have discovered her talent. Please join me as I unfold my talents and how I intend to make good use of it and create wealth while leaving a positive impact as well.
    A skill is the capability to carry out a task efficiently and effectively with a given amount of time, energy or both while, talents are natural abilities that becomes a skill when properly developed and harnessed. Skills acquisition are needed for individual and national development. Borrowing from Walter Rodney (1972:1) definition of development as "increased skill and capacity, greater freedom, creativity, self-discipline, responsibility and material well-being", it is necessary to distinguish between hard and soft skills. Both skill sets are complementary and relevant to the overall development of an individual. Hard skills are specific knowledge and abilities that are learned through education or training. Examples include ICT skills, artisanship etc. Soft skills on the other hand are people skills that derives from personality traits and they are usually not quantifiable unlike hard skills. Examples include communication skills, emotional quotient etc. Right from my little age, I have always had passion for teaching. Even when I was under the age of 6-8, I would gather all the children in the compound even those older than my age and teach them what I learnt in school. Even in my teen age, I was called and tagged “Teacher” Another skill I have is marketing; I can market any good as far as it is what people can buy. I have worked with Daraju Company i.e makers of Mymy products. I have also worked with kamisafe i.e members of rechargeable lights and fan. I have also marketed for happy beddings so, together with my knowledge about economics; marketing has never been a problem to me.
    After my studies, I will apply for the post of a teacher in a standard school while trying to save up some money that will be enough for me to hire a place or buy a land where I can start up my school business and within the space of five years my school will made known through the quality education that will be given to students. Aside creating wealth for myself, I will employ qualified teachers in my school and through this they will be able to earn a living and poverty will be alleviated.

    HOW I INTEND TO USE MY TALENT AND SKILLS TO CREATE WEALTH AND ERADICATE POVERTY
    Talent is an inborn ability or aptitude of a person. It is inborn, we grow up without actually learning or acquiring it. Skills is learnt ability and can be developed if someone puts more effort to acquire it.
    I discovered my talent when I got employed in a paint manufacturing company after my SSCE. I got to notice that I was very good with colours and can differentiate them more than most of my colleagues. My passion for colours and creating design led me to painting, mainly building painting decorations. I started with my home, and next a friend who introduced me to another friend. Also with the help of the company I worked for, I was able to get more painting works and consultants from people who needed home decors. My love for colours has gained me more and more inspiration on how to mix and create perfect wall designs, and it has fetched me lots of money both in school and outside the school environment.
    HOW I INTEND TO USE MY TALENT TO CREATE WEALTH AND ERADICATE POVERTY
    Since I have developed my talent, I set out steps that will help me to utilize my talent to create wealth. This is divided into basically two phases with their various characteristics or steps.
    PHASE ONE
    • Acquisition of necessary equipment and tools
    I believe that for me to fully regard myself as a painter or a decorator, I have to possess the basic tools that are used in painting. This is why I feel that the first step I will take in my path to creating wealth through my talent is to avail myself of these tools. Also, acquisition of these tools is going to help me in doing any type of work that I wish to embark on.
    • Publicity to advertisement on various social media
    Next on the list is making people aware of what I do. This is where social media now comes in. I intend to make use of social media like Instagram, facebook, whatsapp, and twitter. This all starts with creating an account with these social media platforms and making advertisements on them, and also making it very easy for people to reach you. The advertisements also include works that I have already done before, as well as the ones that I feel I can do.
    • Provision of means of transportation
    This entails creating means that will enable me to transport myself to the various locations that am being needed at. This could mean purchasing a means of transportation itself or by setting out special fund for it.

    PHASE TWO
    These first three steps will attract customers to me and as the number of customers increase, there is the need for me to also expand leading to the following procedures.
    • Employing of workers
    Now due to the increased demand for my services, there is the increased possibility that I will need to employ other people to work under me. Having people working under me will make it possible to cover more ground, as well as marketing the brand.
    • Physical Location
    By physical location, I mean having an office or a place where people will take as my address. This arose from the need that for me employ workers, I have to provide a place for them to work in.

    PHASE THREE
    Basically this phase three has to do with expansion of the brand and proper commercialization. This entails processes that will greatly minimize cost and maximize profit. The steps here include;
    • Creation of backward linkages
    In order to greatly maximize profit and minimize cost, I will engage in production of my own brand of paints from which I will now be serving my customers. This, in as much as being a new investment outlet, will also help me in absorbing the profits that will arise from not purchasing paints from other sources.
    In conclusion, I believe that the numerous phases and steps that I have set out will help me in maximizing my talent, using it create wealth and eradicate poverty, and also in making my life more fulfilled due to the numerous employment it will create for people.

  133. How I Can Use Acquired Knowledge And Skill To Get Out Of poverty
    Right from the age of thirteen, I have always believed that am blessed with the gift of creative writing. I started writing at the age of thirteen and have written loads of unpublished manuscript. The most famous ones among them include Wolf In Clothing Of Sheep, The Aliens Invasion and Great Power Gone Mad. Most of my work are centered of real life stories and adventure except for the one of the great power gone mad which was more scientific in nature because words like warhead , asteroid, mars and so on formed part of dictions used in the write-up and it gave an insight on intricate scientific challenges that would resurface at the eventual destruction of earth by nuclear warheads of great powers and the complexity of life in Mars for the few survivors of the earth destruction. I believe that when these works are eventually published, they will be able to earn me money because many publishing companies are interested on works with captivating stories that would keep the readers on suspense from the very first page to the end . when they come across such work, they are willing to negotiate a mouth watery deal with the writer and also pay him or her deserving royalty. On the other hand, my short short stories which are usually fantasy and adventurous in nature can be targeted to the pupils in elementary schools. . These are the kind of stories they enjoy most , therefore, I will be able to make money while impacting their life positively. Though I might not want to make this my full time job. I can still make it a part time job , working as a freelancer while doing other things that I fancy. On the other hand I can also become an economic consultant because am good in offering valuable advices. I can offer firm advice on how to maximize their resources for optimum production, conduct research on their behalf and earn money too from it

    My Talent
    From my childhood days, i like it when people taste my food. and i feel happy when my people taste my food and tastefy how nice it is. When i was growing, i was too close to my mum that cooking was what i was trained with.
    I grow with the passion because i helps friends in making nice dish and it gives me joy seeing them feeling satisfied and happy when they eats what i cooked.
    My friends use to call me the YomiYomi due to how excellent i cooks my food.
    HOW TO DEVELOP MY TALENT INTO SKILLS AND EARNING MONEY FROM IT IN NEXT 5 YEARS.
    I have started developing my talent into skills since my 16 years. I applied to Catering institution for 2 years training where i obtained my certificate as a professional caterer. My plan is to be trained as an event planner who takes charge of events like wedding ceremony, Funeral ceremony, birthday parties etc. When i obtained my B.Sc. in 2020 by then i would have been grounded in that because now am learning the work under a classic events planner in my town. As we all know most of these events are on Saturdays so it do not affect my school activities much.
    I believe that some money i made from my handwork now which i saves in my piggy bank will earn me enough money for acquiring the capitals needed to be a professional event planner by 2022 and by then, i would have been popular in that area.
    By 2023, i would have my office and also have people under me learning to be events planner too. By 2024, with the help of my B.sc and the economics knowledge i acquired in school, i would be seeking for contracts in government parastatal events and big national events as the chief event planner.
    Though the revenue i will earn is not the end itself but a means to an end because the end is to solve societal problem and make people happy but am also sure i will fare good both financially and otherwise in my developed talent.

    MY TALENT/SKILL AND HOW I HOPE TO USE IT TO CREATE WEALTH AND DEVELOP THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY WITHIN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS (SHORT TERM) AS WELL AS WITHIN THE NEXT TEN YEARS (LONG TERM).

    A Talent is said to be an innate ability to carry out or perform a particular task with minimal difficulty. Talents are very important in ours because some people can improve theirs to create wealth to themselves and use it to pursue away poverty. According to the business dictionary, talent is a natural ability to excel at a duty or actions. A group of people, such as employees, who have a particular aptitude tasks. For example, producers of a movie might recruit local talent, actors and actors who live nearby, to stand in as extra in a film. We have some examples of talents such as public speaking, writing, singing , dancing, drawing, cooking, sporting, acting, praying, self-management, networking, and so many of them. Talking about skill, skill is the capacity to do something well, techniques or ability. Skills are usually acquired or learned, as to oppose to abilities, which are often thought of as innate.
    Brief introduction on how I acquired the above listed skills.
    Firstly, the laundry skill came about from the collective effort of my brother and I during our secondary school. I learnt everything about laundry from my brother while in secondary school including how to sort cloths into colorfast and non-colorfast, to washing, drying, ironing down to neatly folding. Painting and brick laying are the skills are learnt from my father who is a builder. I do follow him to his construction site then while I learnt how to do this two handwork and at the same time been paid for running errands at the site. Basically this are the three informal skills I got from my family while growing up and its patient to say that I do paint my fellow student’s rooms in the school on a little charge. Writing is a talent I have discovered in myself. Though this is still at the infancy stage because I haven’t paid so much attention to it. I intend enrolling for a writing workshop (the Farafina trust conducted every summer by Chimamand Nogzi Adchie) so that I can fully tap into this potential in the nearest future. It is important to note that am going into writing not necessarily as a sources of livelihood but because it’s a passion that came from reading.

    HOW CAN THIS IDENTIFIED SKILLS AND TALENT CREATE WEALTH FOR ME IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS?
    Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. For me to explore this skills and talent, I have to work hard in perfecting on them so that I can go beyond the boundaries of my locality. In essence, I have to undergo some level of formal training particularly on the painting and brick laying to have a firm grip of want to skill requires so that I can be a guru on it and also acquire the basic tools required so that i can be an employer of labor in the nearest future. For the laundry service, all I need to do is to site a good business location and employ someone that will manage it for me (a good business location is the heartbeat of every successful business). I wanting to write not because I want to earn a living from it but because it’s something I enjoy doing and I always feel I can excel in it. So with this approach, I believe I five years to come I will utilize my skill and talent to create job for me and at the same time employ workers.

    MY SKILLS AND TALENTS AND THE ECONOMIC IMPLICATION
    BAG MAKING USING TWINE
    I have acquired skills in bag making which is called TWINE BAG AND PURSES. The bags and purses are made using a special rope called twine. This wine comes in different attractive colors and when skillfully combined in making it, produces designed beautiful bags. The bag designs come in either plain pattern or curly design.
    MATERIALS FOR PRODUCTION
    The materials needed for the making include, sewing machine, twine rope, measuring tape scissors, etc
    AVAILABE MARKET FOR THE PRODUCT
    The bags are actually produced in small quantities and most times, on demand. The work is not so popular down here in the East unlike the middle belt where it originated from and so, I do seek to expand its production I supply the small quantity produced on demand in my immediate environment and sometimes go beyond.
    MY TALENT
    I actually discovered the innate ability and natural inclination as well as love and joy for teaching in my early teenage age. This special ability has made found myself organizing lessons for school pupils, extra moral classes for both junior and senior secondary student as well as other platform.
    The passion for teaching has not limited me to the circular world of teaching but also evident in my participation in my religious circle as a Sunday school teacher at my place of worship.
    ECONOMIC IMPLICATION OF MY SKILLS AND TALENT
    In our world today, depending on one source or stream of income will only lead to what is called THE RAT RACE as described by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter in the book RICH DAD, POOR DAD. Inclining to my talent, I have the ambition to become a lecturer as well as become an entrepreneur.
    Immediately after graduation, I would secure a shop and then get people who are interested in learning this skill, to pay while I spread my tentacles. If the white collar job is available then it will combined with my entrepreneurial plans but if not, I will be a busy pursuing expanding my skills.
    By being self employed, that will, by implication cut down the dependency ratio on my immediate family thereby reducing consumption, giving room for savings, increasing the volume of credit available for investors in the economy and in turn impacting positively on our GDP.
    Secondly, by employing labor, it will reduce the number of unemployed youths on the street, therefore also reducing dependency ratio and enabling them with purchasing power. This will add to the general demand for goods and services. Increased demand will lead to corresponding supply of goods and services which will impact directly on the GDP of the economy.
    DEVELOPING THE TALENT AND CARRER
    Entrepreneurship require creativity, innovation and this require that I acquire more skills related to this and so, I plan enrolling in entrepreneur skill acquisition and tailoring during my service year, God willing and to further acquire other degrees in order to polish my teaching talent. It is said that when opportunity meet preparation, success is inevitable.
    With the combination of my talent and skills already acquired, I don’t see myself being a liability to myself, my family or even my nation at large, this is because most successful and rich people today are entrepreneurs who did not think of what the economy could do for them but what they could do for the betterment of their economy.

    How do you Intend to Develop then to Create Wealth for you and take you out of Poverty in the Medium and Long Term
    My skill in life is in management of poverty farming and I have acquired a lot of training in that field for about eight years in various farms ranging from choice and various poultry farms in the Oyo State. Poultry in Nigeria is probably one of the most lucrative farming businesses you can do in Nigeria especially when it is setup and managed properly. The farmers, we currently have not producing enough poultry and will to be enough even in one next ten years. Poultry farm is raising of domesticated birds such as chickens, turkey, dove and geese, for the purpose of farming meat or egg for food. Poultry farms are farm where birds (of difference nature) are raised either for personal consumption or for commercial purpose. Which I specialized in raising of chickens for egg and meat production. I intend developing the poultry, farming by getting these factors listed below.

    FEEDING: good and high quality food keeps the birds, heal only and highly productive. Good quality fresh and nutritious food is the key to success in poultry farming business. Always, provides adequate amount of food according to the number and age of poultry birds. Along with feeding good foods, always supply sufficient amount of clean and fresh eater according to the daily demand.
    Care and management
    Poultry bird are very serious and may caught by disease easily, generally they suffer by various types of viral bacterial fungal, nutritional and parasitic disease free. Healthy and production must for keeping bird timely, if somehow, disease occurs in the farm over meet a vet doctor, as soon as possible and listen to his advice.

    – Poultry farming in Nigeria is a lucrative business opportunity for individual and entrepreneurs. Commercial poultry farming creates great employment opportunities for our job seeking people.
    – Poultry farming is such a great business that can never dry up. Because it provides us eggs and meat that is great source of notorious food.

    The Talents I Have Discovered:

    While still in primary school, I can still vividly recall how I would race straight to the market after school to help my parents’ trade. Daddy used to compliment me and say I’m the best sales girl ever. He says I know how to keep the customers coming back for more goods. After the day’s sale, he would reward me with one hundred Frances to go buy sweets for the job well done. Even without putting an effort, I know how to convince people to do my bidding. Marketing techniques flows naturally to me.

    Another talent I discovered when I was merely nine years old is writing. I would lock myself inside my room and write a dozen of letters to all the pupils in my class. In the letters, I would tell them the things I liked or disliked about them. Most of my classmates didn’t like me because of how blunt or angry I tend to sound in the letters. I can recall how I was flogged in our headmaster’s office after a parent came along her daughter to school the following day, complaining how her child decided give everyone at home a wee silence treat because her classmate thinks she’s too loud. When the question of who said that emerged, little chubby fingers where pointed at me. Quickly, our headmaster flogged me in the palm (while fighting off a smile) just to make that parent happy. Sometimes, I write songs lyrics. As a child, I can remember how I’d spend hours upon hours trying to sing out the funny lyrics with my younger sister or apportion stanza between my siblings. While in secondary school, SS1 precisely, I wrote the first draft of a novel. I didn’t complete it though. Towards the beginning of a first term in SS3, I noticed that the art students in my set where regarded as dunce. Teachers and most of the science students saw us as empty big heads, empty vessels, and queens of nothing. That we choose our field of study because of circumstances, because we weren’t brilliant enough to go in for sciences. That because we were art students, we wouldn’t add any value to the society. All these cray cray assumptions vexed me. Therefore, I wrote an article addressing the situation. I made as many hard copies as I could manage and shared it around. That was when I noticed other art student felt the same. As for the outcome, the feedback was overwhelming.

    Although my mum will not agree with me, I believe I’m a talented cook. I see cooking as an escape. Whenever I’m overwhelmed with life, I cook the best meal ever. If this is not weird enough, I feel better when the food is done. I tend to get very creative with cooking since I try out different methods, throw in different ingredients that wasn’t listed in the recipe, and most times, the results are always mouthwatering. On very rare occasions, the reverse is the case.

    Skills Developed I Have Developed
    Over the years, I have developed (and still developing) quiet some skills. All of the skills mentioned below are still a work in progress. They are;

    Writing – Creative writing on its own is tricky. Writing English as a second language is way trickier. The aim is to-never-let a dream grow cold. I follow many blogs and vblogs accounts that teach creative writing. Every November, I participate in a worldwide writing community called NANOWRINO. The primary object of this community is to write and complete a fifty thousand-word novel in a month, usually in November. So far, I’ve completed one draft which I’m currently editing. This challenge has been a game changer for me since I get to connect with thousands of other writers all over the world and most importantly get to complete a novel in ONE month! I write short stories too. If writers were paid by the number of incomplete drafts sitting in their laptops or voices ranting in their heads, I sure will hit the Forbes list!

    Computer Geek – I spent about a year and half in a computer training school and came out in flying colors. This skill has been a feather to my red cap. I’m grateful to God for every second I spent practicing computer. Honestly, the benefits greatly outweigh the cost. Whenever I’m called upon, I do help my daddy compute and process his balance sheet and do some other stuff in the computer. The way his chest puffs with pride whenever I sit in front of the PC and do the magic is pure bliss to me.

    Managerial Skill – This skill is a major work in progress for me and it explains why I’m in the Department of Economics. Someday in the future, I would own and run a company (I haven’t decided what type of company yet), I believe this skill will go a long way to help me that area. All the knowledge and lessons I have so far learnt will equip me to be a better manager when the opportunity comes my way.

    Research Skill – From time immemorial, I have always been one with questions upon questions loitering in my head. I have also been one to find out the depth of the matter about certain topics relating the society that bothers me. I search extensively for the truth because I believe the truth is out there, I merely have to search for it. This is another work in progress and one of the reasons I decided to major in Economics.

    How I Intend To Create Wealth With The Combination Of The Skills And Talents.
    To solve poverty in my life;
    Somewhere at the back of mind, I know that no matter what, I shall one day become a successful published author. It will take time, consume my energy, cost me my night’s rest, but in the end, it shall end in praise. And when this happens, I shall of course earn a fortune. When the time comes, my character will be brought to life. Maybe NETFLIX or Warner Bros or 20th Century Fox or Universal Pictures will hustle to make a movie deal with me.

    Wealth cannot only measured in monetary terms. I opine that the worse form of poverty is a poor thinking faculty. Some money-wise wealthy people still wallow in the depth of penury. When one is poor in the mind, they are done for. Therefore, as long as I have diligently gained education and reformed my mind, I could make money while engaging in the smallest of things, be it advising a small firm on how to make produce goods at the least cost method, carrying a research on how one or two things are the way there are, running a simple regression test on Eviews for a company, etc.

    To solve poverty in our nation:
    If I could, I would have earnestly wished to create enough wealth and distribute to every sick-homeless-poverty-stricken fellow I find roaming around the streets. See that no one is cheated or left out of the allocation. Put a genuine smile on every one’s face. Since the task is enormously difficult and largely impossible to achieve alone, the only way I can give back efficiently is by becoming the best version of myself. By becoming a brand through excellence in my field of endeavor. By becoming a solution to a problem and not a part of the problem to be solved. The only way I can contribute my quota in alleviating poverty in our nation is to give back all I have learnt through service.

    Thanks!

    Though Man engage in many things yet Man is not master of many things, although human being are occupy with a lot of ideas in the mind, the truth is that one out of millions is powerful. But the question is, how can a man discover the unique idea that is more superior in the mist of many ideas? To discover is not in power of man, rather in the power of the Almighty God. Therefore man need to only connect with in order to discover it since there are many ideas but one is the most strongest. According to Oxford dictionary, talent is a natural ability to do something well. Therefore talent is ability to do something and to do it well. As a young man, I, have ability to do many things, but one thing I do most and well. I engage in many things like Business, Sports, Music Farming, academic pursuit etc, but in all I find it easy to do one well which is business.

    The skills I developed for the ideas (businesses)
    Having involved in it over years and got so many experiences, these are skills I have been able to develop towards making them practically okay. Planning: it is the act of taking a deep thought and examination about making an idea realistic .Planning in a sense that no business can be done effectively without thorough evaluation of the components that cause it to work. One of the plans is how to generate enough capital through savings and other means. Another important evaluation is the market for the product. In business, there is one common idea that governs business, that is the demand for the product, that is where the demand for such product is high. The environment for the business: it is where the business is cited or located. Such environment must possess some unique characters such as the population of people living there, security conscious, other firms must be there, there must good roads, etc. it will help the business to grow faster and smoother. Resources needed for the business:
    How do I develop this talent to overcome poverty
    Poverty is a threat to human existent,
    The first step I took towards developing this talent is the need for education. With education, knowledge is acquired, thank God for the study of Economics, it helps me a lot in developing my talent. With the combination of the knowledge I have gotten from school with the experience I have in business already, it will help me to overcome the danger of poverty. The second step I have taken is hard work: To achieve a goal, one must work hard, do beyond what others have done and time dedicated into making it a reality. Business does not admits laziness. It means killing the business. Hard work by reading books written by business experts and advice from business consultants. A talent can be developed if there are mentors who have succeeded in that line of business. There most important thing I discover in business is control of one’s character, with both the workers [labourers) and the customers (consumers). When a man character is good, it attracts customers into the business.

    ASSIGNMENT

    Discuss your identified talent, the still you have developed. How do i intend to develop my talents and my skills in the next five years to escape poverty

    DEFINITION OF TALENT AND SKILL:
    A talent or gift is the desire or inclination that someone has, to do something very well. It is an ability that someone is born with. On the other hand, skills are usually cultivated, acquired or learned and it makes a person to be practised expert or dextrous. Skill makes you have practical knowledge of something
    Some of my skills and talents:

    Talents:
    Designing
    Good cook
    Singing
    Counciling

    Skills:
    Creativity
    Adaptation
    Teaching/Training
    Baking (pea-nut making, Cake etc)
    Problem solving

    Presently I am a chorister. I noticed I can sing very well that, if it happens I am the only one around in my part, while choir ministers it will be had to notice any discrepancy in soprano part. I have gone to many places for choir competition which I happened to be one of the soloist and we always carry the ist position. Any day I supposed to sing and didn't sing(like Church, anywhere) even when I am in my house, along the road, even when I am sick, I find out I will not have peace. I can just sing or council a sick person or someone who is weak may be because of challenge or condition, the person will become strong. I am gifted in counciling, singing and also l can cook very well. I thank God for that.
    Under skills, I learned pea-nut making, cake but the one I am on is pea-nut because of my studies. I can make and design cake very well but don't do it all the time because of time. I carried on with pea-nut making because it is not something that spoils in months. I can just sacrifice a day (usually sarturdays) to prepair the one that can last for months and it doesn't disturb me. Adaptability and innovation helped me deviced an alternative way of making my pea-nut better and different.

  145. Ways I intend to develop my talents and my skills in the next five years to escape poverty:

    KNOWING MY PURPOSE:
    Why do I do the things I like doing; answering this question sincerely giving it the right formulation lays a solid ground for me to build in my pursue of growth and improvement. When the why have been clearly defined, it will help me focus on what's most important. It will boost my determination and give me the kind of resilience needed to continue when setback or obstacles are experience.

    RESEARCH ON REQUIRED TECHNIQUES:
    Figuring out what I need to learn in order to take my natural talent to the next level is very vital to know if there are other forms or variations in the Craft. Also knowing the extent other people have worked in the desired Field will help me in creating a common ground for being able to collaborate with others and also in protecting my abilities

    FOCUSING ON MY STRENGTH:
    Identifying my weakness but focusing more on my strength s zooms my confidence. Watching myself make progress in the things am good at brings more fulfilment to me and keeps me motivated to push forward beyond my limits

    HAVING/CREATING MY OWN FORMULA:
    Out of the many skills and techniques learnt I fiter out the one that works best for me so that my will be unique. That personal touch and the most beneficial lessons brought together create my own special formula.

    TAKING CONSTRUCTIVE ADVICE:
    Turning to my mentors and those who have thought me advice and feed back in times of confusion but not asking their permission to do what I want to do. I should not wait on anyone's opinion or ask for their votes on my decision. The only permission I need is mine.

    BEING A VERSATILE:
    A versatalist is someone who can easily adapt to new situations and quickly develop the skills necessary to excel. Being a versatalist essentially means being a smart learner who knows what to learn and how to quickly learn it.

    KNOWING MY ROLE MODEL AND MENTORS:
    It will be easier for me to grow if I have concrete axamples of what I want to be. My role models gives me a standard to achieve so that i know where and how far I should go in developing my skills. It also motivate me since I know they have more experience and have already achieved such high standard. Therefore, attaching myself to them to help them in whatever way I can will give them a reason to invest their time in me.

    DO THE WORK:
    When it comes to developing my talents,I have to put in the hours and do the work. Everything else is next on the list, but my work, my product, need to be a priority.

    CONCLUSION:
    Till date I'm into pea-nut business. I do it in school and outside school. Within the geographical area where people have known about it, it has driven away other people that have been into pea-nut business. I'm only limited with capital and time because of my studies, (that is, in terms of expanding it).
    With all these, I believe if I am able to register it in NAFDAC, package it and expose the name because as at now the name is still hidden. Then it will go round the world and even sustain me, help me escape poverty for life not only in the next five years.

    TALENTS

    In the journey of life towards perfection and sustainable livelihood, people have got naturally endowed gifts or if you like TALENTS that will trigger for or skyrocket one to his or her abode of sustainable livelihood.
    What then is Talent
    Talent can be seen as a marked natural ability or skill. It can further be said that talent is a desire or inclination for something. Having established this, mine is not a different case because I have got naturally endowed gifts which below are:
    TEACHING;
    Over the years, I have been teaching in different lesson centres and preparing for UTME exams especially those in my area of discipline. So it is in me to impact the little knowledge that I have to people where and when necessary. Since I have this natural inclination to impact knowledge to people, I have started at different academic institutions to keep the fire burning. Tomorrow, if I become a lecturer, I will not be surprised and continue with teaching. If I eventually become a lecturer, it has become a step forward out of poverty because I have seen people make their living through teaching. Mine will not be a different case.
    LEADERSHIP
    One of the qualities of a good leader is the ability to serve others. This is what I have developed over the years by being a servant anywhere I am . Once I give out injunctions, people around me tends to follow what I have said without forcing anybody to do anything. Why? This is because I have been doing what I want others to do so without being cajoled or coerced. Since in a democratic settings, people tend to be happy when servant leaders are in powers as opposed to autocratic ar tyrannical leadership. This my leadership skill that I have that I have started developing, it will go a long way to skyrocket my exposure to new people across the globe and therefore explore opportunities that will definitely expel me from poverty domain.

    MY TALENT AND SKILL AND HOW I HOPE TO DEVELOP IT IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS (SHORT TERM) AS WELL AS WITHIN THE NEXT TEN YEARS (LONG TERM).
    The Merriam Webster’s dictionary defines talent as a special often athletic, creative or artistic aptitude. Skill is a learnt ability. It is acquired or developed after you put in a lot of time and hard work. Talents are peculiar to individuals and when properly harnessed makes for skills. Human beings are naturally endowed with skills and talents that can contribute to individual and natural growth and development.
    During my early days, I had always fell in love with computer designing. I remember using the computer to design birthday cards, Christmas cards and even logos of business companies. Gaining admission into the university got me introduced to the world of building design using building design apps like auto cad, archi cad, solid works and so many more. It was easy to acquaint myself with these apps because I already had gained a basic knowledge of these things.
    Speaking about my short term plans for creating wealth. I intend to take a six months crash course in building design as I hope to become an expert In building design. I do also intend to market my skills to the public getting money for every work done. I am hoping in the long run to form a partnership with my colleagues involved in building design. We hope to go further in not just building designs but also in architectural designs like bridges, flyovers, airports etc.
    In conclusion ,it is my hope and belief that God willing these skills will help me achieve my short and long term goals as I strive to develop it to the fullest.

    Topic: How your Talent and skills will help you out of poverty, your short term and long term plans on how to deliver yourself from poverty using them.
    TALENT:
    Growing up as a child, I had a very curious mind, I wanted to understand everything and anything, life, nature, love, God, etc. unconsciously I developed love for writing, I create beautiful stories, fictions, without much stress, I sit down and tell my stories and it flows with such a bond, that I believed is a talent because I didn’t have to acquire those story telling abilities, thus, I’m a fiction writer, a story teller, I write romance currently but I believing God for the ability to go into Christian literature, that is my long term plan. Though none of my stories has been published and just very few have been submitted as entries, with many unfinished works and few finished which is accessible but not public. I have a highly creative mind and imagination so I would say that also helped my writing. i hope to sell my stories in the nearest future.
    Teenagehood came with a bag full of experience, so I gathered my experience as a teenager and decided to use it to help teenagers out, currently I’m a volunteer in a public secondary school, I share my experiences with them and impact the knowledge of God in them, giving hope to them and encouragement that will help them out through the tussles of juvenile, I love what I do because it helps me share my experience and it keeps hope alive in this youth which is my greatest joy, so I’m indirectly an inspirational speaker and writer with reality. My long term plan for this is having a foundation for youths and teenagers, where I will offer emotional, financial and spiritual assistance to these target group, most times much money isn’t made through this but then impacting positively in people has no monetary measurement, nevertheless, I hope to gain support from NGOs, and international organizations, this will go a long way.
    SKILL:
    Skills are acquired most times, unlike talents which are more like gifts. Skill wise, I’m a baker, I specialize majorly on cakes and mild snacks, and I’m a confident baker, my cakes are second to none, with such an outstanding quality, I always tell my customers ‘I bake something I can comfortably eat, whether it’s for me or for someone else’ I developed this skill on my own, I never went for baking lessons but curiosity and experience lead me into it, my short term goals for this is birthing more beautiful cakes for people and my long term I hope to diversify into finger foods and small shops create a broader stream of income as I deliver a full package of appetizers at events and occasions, trust me no one resists finger foods.
    It’s still about creativity, the skill I hope to acquire later in life is footwear making and dress making, I hope in not too long a time, I will be a fashion designer, because I want to channel my love for shoes and clothes positively to making them myself instead of spending more on it and also letting people share in my taste by making beautiful designs for them.
    Long term I hope to establish a foundation for youths and teenagers, where they can come and learn skills such as baking, tailoring, decorations etc. and also learn about God, by that way I’m doing what I love at the same time blessing people. I also would render counselling services which would be open to everyone. I also would love to go into production of household materials, with the connection I must have made and people I must have met and influence I would have had on lives, I believe I will be touching the business world very well and impacting in it, thus delivering myself and my generations from poverty through the legacy I must have made.

    My talent is doing business , over the years I have always loved to buy and sell things or connect to people who wants to.

    How I want to escape poverty in the next 5yrs
    That's exactly the reason why I am doing economics as a course in the university to broaden my knowledge in the world of business in many aspects apart from just buying and selling. So that when I graduate, I will be able to use the knowledge I have to start up a businessq/company and work on my own since I have gathered the necessary knowledge to do so. I'd like to have a business and have a company of my own than working for someone else

    A skill I have learned over the years is based mostly on computer e.g internet services, graphic designs and spread sheet
    Alongside my talent on business I have also been able to develop these skills to help me raise money mostly in school for my upkeep. For example people usually need someone good in graphics to help them with posters and some other designs . Also allot of people in school , especially the freshers don't know how to use the internet to register their courses, print school fees receipt , update their students profile and hostel allocation (which is the most important ). So since I am already good in these services , I have always used it to keep myself going and making some income , the more I do these things , the more I become good in them.

    2. Business plan: upon completing the feasibility study, and the idea is found feasibile I will then process to prepare a business plan. This sets out the full plan of the what, where, when and how the business will operate. The market plan is put in place, financial plan stating how the venture will make, spend and retain money for the set period and beyond (3,5,10 years), the management structure and plan is looked into to ensure proper guidians of the business, amongst other things.
    3. Education/skill acquisition: once 1 and 2 above are being prepared or are concluded, it is very important I upgrade myself. That is, learn beyond what my mom taught me. Acquiring additional relevant skills/education will be beneficial to both me and the growth of the business.

    ASSIGNMENT.
    What have you seen in your life as a talent and how do you intend to develop your talent and skill to create wealth for you out of poverty.
    Growing up as a child, I admired people on good outfit, I naturally love seeing people well dressed. Simply put, am attracted to people that dressed responsibly. On many different occassions, I would gathered materials such as newspaper, sewing needle, thread and scissor. With the little knowledge I acquired, I would measured the newspaper which represened ankara material and stitch something out of it.
    Meanwhile, a talent is an inborn ability or natural aptitude of a person which is hidden and need recognition. It is something that we naturally do without acquiring it. While a skill is a learnt ability which can be developed in someone if he put his time and energy to it.
    From my brief introduction earlier, I can say that my talent is fashion designing; I love sewing it gives me excitement making people beautiful simply by my creative art and combination.
    HOW MY TALENT CAN BE DEVELOPED.
    the most crucial thing I need to do is to recognise my talent. Over the years I have passion for designing clothes and creating thing together to give a meaningful impression on people's look.
    Another important way I can develop my skills in by nurturing. Although my professional or academic career is crucial but I shouldn't let my talent suffer loss. I need to stay in touch with what I love doing. So, during long vacation, especially this last vacation, I undergone temporary training, it helped build me up also gives me the opportunity to express myself. Staying in touch with my skill practically makes me to be proficient, because I did a lot of practical training like sewing of simple skirt and ladies tops. Indeed it gives me a sense of belonging and add qualitative value to my life.
    In addition, I didn't undergo the training in isolation, I had a mentor who is much more like a boss, she constantly direct, supervised and mentor me on what to do during my stay with her.
    HOW TO CREATE WEALTH AND GET RID OF POVERTY.
    The first crucial step to take is to believe in myself. It is very difficult to achieve true financial freedom and build wealth working as an employee or for someone else. This is because all my effort is going into creating wealth for the business am working for instead of helping myself.
    To create a meaningful wealth and getting rid of poverty is best working for myself and building up my own successful business so that every hour I spend is spent on building my wealth and prosperity.
    To achieve this, I will use my talent since I love sewing and admire people on good outfit. To be a successful fashion designer, I have to a deep knowledge about how to put piece of cloth together. I will acquired an advanced training of 6 months in the fashion world, this is because the profession is critical and technical, no customer will like to see her cloth messed up. Fashion is much more than sewing, training will enable me to know everything about designing and sewing clothes as well as making other things because fashion is more than cloth, I need to learn how to run a sewing machines, how to take up a measurement on customers, and how to cut cloth that fit in.

    ASSIGNMENT QUESTION
    IDENTIFY YOUR TALENT AND SKILLS, HOW DO YOU INTEND TO DEVELOP YOUR TALENT AND SKILLS TO CREATE WEALTH FOR YOU.
    ANSWER
    Wouldn't it be great to be gifted? In fact…
    It turns out that choices lead to habits.
    Habits become talents.
    Talents are labeled gifts.
    You're not born this way, you get this way."
    – Seth Godin
    My talent
    "I come from a family where soccer has always been very present," "My uncles, my father and my brother were all players. Living with that kind of background, I learned a great deal from them. I tried to devote myself to it more and more with the passage of time."
    In particular, I idolised the life's of ronaldinho. "He was one of the most important people for me and in my career, "He gave me some of the best advice I've ever had. Off the field: 'Do the right thing and be an honest, straight-up guy.' And on the field: 'Play soccer as simply as possible.' He always said one of the most complicated things you can do is to play it simple."

    HOW FOOTBALL CAN HELP FETCH MONEY AND AT THE SAME TIME ALLEVIATE POVERTY.
    once said, “sport has the power to change the world.” If that’s true, the four billion soccer fans around the globe today hold the greatest amount of power. Soccer enjoys a popularity level almost double that of the next most popular sport.

    Inherent in that popularity is a responsibility to give back, to use that influence to impact some of those who hold the sport in the highest esteem — the world’s poor. In truth, soccer and poverty often exist together, but poverty is the unwanted relative that has overstayed its welcome.

    IDENTIFY YOU TALENT AND SKILL AND HOW IT WILL CREATE WEALTH FOR YOU IN 5-10 YEARS

    It will be practically right to identity that which makes you special and different from others,
    And for me, that which distinguishes me from other is the talent of MONEY MANAGEMENT.
    Money management is the process of expense tracking, investing, budgeting, banking and
    evaluating taxes of ones money which is also called investment management.

    The first step to creating wealth with my talent is by

    DEFINING SUCCESS AND THEN ACHIEVING IT.
    I will take time to clearly define, set, prioritize, and agree upon and document specific goals that I want to achieve, such as a specific lifestyle or charitable grant.
    Research has it that people who set goals tend to move to actions quicker and are good at making decisions. Taking a goal-based approach defines the bench mark needed to make enough wealth in the future.

    HAVING A PLAN
    For any expert to be succesful, he or she has to map out a plan towards meeting their financial goal. With this done, I will have to be focussed and determined in making decisions that will generate wealth for me.

    INVESTING WITH PURPOSE
    As a money manager I am supposed to know how to make good decisions and as well as investing well. I will critically analyse any investment opportunity to know if it will yield wealth for me in the future.

    DEMOCRATIZING DECISION-MAKING
    By democratising the decision making of my clients, I will be able to guild them in the proper investment and management of their financial resources. With this, I will be able to make a good reputation and wealth.

    IDENTIFY YOUR TALENT AND SKILLS,HOW DO YOU INTEND TO DEVELOP YOUR TALENT AND SKILLS TO CREATE WEALTH FOR YOU.

    Definition of concept
    What is talent- a talent (gift or aptitude) is the skill that someone has to do something very well that people usually like and that is difficult. It is an ability that someone is born with.
    As much as human being exist everybody has its own talent and this talent is what makes individual different from another. One person may have different or many talents for instance, all leaders have their own unique talents, which they will use in different ways to bring out the best in themselves and others.
    I nwobodo ugochukwu a native of Awgbu in Orumba North Local Government, Anambra State. I discovered myself and talent at age of nine that is when I am still in primary school. At that time I love playing football and I find out that I can play very well more than my age mates. Then I don’t know that my father is watching me because he played football when he is still young, he was the person that called me and started giving me some training and instructions on how to play ball because it is my passion to do so I put in a lot of effort on that. Before I knew it our game master got interest in me have seen how I played whenever we have our school football training. I participated in all primary school football competition in Anambra state in 2005. At that time I was the captain of the team and the position I played that time is defence. I was the chief defence of my team (5) in that tournament as God may want it our school team did so well that they even represent our local government in the state level which we find win the second runner up in the tournament which I was opportune to have a hand shake with our state governor and commissioner of sports in my state. Haven started so well when I enter secondary school I played a lot of matches for my school which we won a lot of trophies at that time. After my secondary school when I was about taken my Jamb my game master advice me to Join a football academy which I later did but the challenges I have is that my mother don’t want me to play football.
    She worked against that but because I have my father’s support I continued to embark on the training as usually then after two years I wrote Jamb and got admission into department of economics, University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
    As a person that have discovered my talent, I keep on moving with my dream. I have put some many plans or strategy to make my vision come through despite being in the school, I have to enroll myself in the UNN Dream Team for training and fitness, I have also gone for many football tiers in many Team like Anambra United, Enugu Rangers, Abia Warrior which I passed their criteria or the standard they want but my major constraint is that am still in school because I believed that knowledge is power. Recently I filled a form with Ifeanyi Uba football team which I was latter called up for a test which I passed then I was chose to play

  165. with their under seventeen team for now which I also join them in the training ground after each semester for training and tournament. It has not been easy for me to combine both education and football but, I have to do that in order to achieve my dream and talent. As God may want it the club owner have taken it upon himself that he will send anybody that prove himself to play abroad with likes of Arsenal, Westham, Kayerispor etc. haven been away of that I have to do it upon myself to work so hard so I can get opportunity to travel abroad not only that I have started making savings from the little they pay us every month for being a member of the team. I also tried to play for other teams when hired to do so. I have also filled some online form from foreign clubs and academy abroad but the problem or challenges am having is financial problem.
    Not only that, in 2016 when I got admission I discovered another talent which am directly or indirectly involving myself already into starting from my primary school days. As of that time I am in primary three I was chose to become our class mentor which I was opportune to remain in that position till I finished my primary school. Then in my secondary school days, I became the class representative in JSS 2 which I continued with it till my SSII, then in my SSII the school proprietor choose me to be the school Disciplinarian which I served at that position till I graduated. When I got admission my course mate chooses me as there combination head that is where I asked myself a question “why always me” because I don’t want to involve myself in that leadership position but I found myself in that in any given environment then I have to think of that I discovered that I have leadership quality or talent. Haven discovered another skill of leading people very well I decided to work on it by joining the school politics as God may want it I contested to present my Department in faculty House of Representative I won the election and joined the FOSSSA House of Parliament. After that I also represent in my department in Student Union Government House of Representative. Having been there for couple of years there are some errors that need to be corrected in the Student Unionism. I have took it upon myself to go back in the SUG house of parliament to context for speakership position in other to bring back the reputation of the house and also to speak and protect the interest of the students to whom we are representing.
    Haven discovered both talents am working so hard to make sure before five-ten years that I must achieve one of them either going to federal house of representative to represent my Local Government or I will become a footballer which I believed to take me out of poverty.

    HOW DO YOU INTEND TO DEVELOP YOUR TALENT AND SKILLS TO CREATE WEALTH FOR YOU

    Growing up as a kid I have sat under high calibers of speaker most which happens to be entrepreneurs, they lay emphasis on goal setting, talent, skill and many more. Back then, as a little boy I pounder much on which of these countless skills and talent do I possess, although I thought of being like a musicians, actor, footballer, and other sportsman I could think off, in fact it got to a point I wanted to be a wrestler” after watching WWE wrestling but this thought did not go far after discovering further knowledge about wrestling, boxing and such kind of brutal sport activities.
    However, as time flies I discover that by nature, I am more of an actor than other talent you can imagine of but strictly waited to settle down as an artist. I quickly joined chorister in the church, time will not permit to tell all the tales, and experience I got from singing in the church but the actual truth is that singing is not in my blood, then I later joined drama unit which I participated more effectively than any other talent I could think off.
    Even till this day I can effectively perform on stage, although the bone issue is how to join the entertainment industries, school activities had limited my curiosity to go into movie industry.

    For long run, I plan to establish a large company which will be known all over the world, this company will be able to produce or manufacture many kinds of consumer goods with high quality. My intention is to reduce the number of imported goods and also create jobs for the unemployed citizens in Nigeria .This will create much money for me and my generations .It will also go a long way to create jobs ,reduce importation and eliminate poverty.

    QUESTION: Discuss your identified talent and the skills you have developed. And then you intend to develop your talent and skill to earn money or create wealth for you and take you out of poverty.

    TALENTS/SKILLS
    Cambridge Dictionary define talent as (someone who has) a natural ability to be good at something, especially without being taught.
    Talent is a special ability to do something well, or people who have this ability. It is a marked natural ability or skill. Talent is a natural aptitude or skill, to excel at a duty or action. It is having a unique gift, showing itself in every activity that goes effortlessly and satisfies you. It is said that when you do what you do best, time flies, and it charges your battery. Radically choosing to do what you are good at is the road to self realization and authenticity.
    Skill can be defined as the ability, coming from ones knowledge, practices, aptitude, etc to do something well. A skill is something that we learn. Skills are developed. One might attend training to learn a skill. You will practice that skill. You can master a skill such that it appears to be a talent.
    In regards to my talent, I wouldn’t say I have an identified talent or discovered an ability that I can do effortlessly but I have known that I have an appreciable level of creativity in the making of hand-made goods. I have been making with my hands Nigerian made footwears by stimulating the designs and implementing them using the method known as crochet.
    I learnt and developed this skill (crocheting) through online platforms like youtube, instagram, pinterest, and others. Crocheting is a kind of needlework in which loops of thread or yarn are interwoven by means of a single hooked needle (crochet hook). It Is simply a way of making clothing materials out of cotton or wool by using a needle with a small hook at the end. So many things can be crocheted, especially clothing items such as dresses, footwear, beanies, blankets, bags, socks, etc. But I have geared my crocheting skill to making crochet footwears. I simply crochet a particular design or pattern and then take it to shoe makers to fix the sole.
    For the time being (i.e short term), I have been making this crochet for people and they pay me in exchange for that. I can boast of little gains from this handiwork of mine which has helped me in solving some financial problems on my own.
    In the long run, it is believed that the ones who practice more are who prevail, not the ones who had some initial advantage in intelligence or some other talents. My plan for the future is simply to have a shoe brand of my own. I pray on getting assistance to further my knowledge about this idea and business of mine in order to be fully equipped with regards to meeting not just the local standard but also to match the international standard by giving it a brand name and as well as checking the designs and materials that suit both the local and international needs.
    I believe that with God by my side I can achieve my dreams.

    IDENTIFIED SKILL AND TALENT AND HOW IT COULD CREATE WEALTH ON THE SHORT AND LONG RUN.

    CODING AND PROGRAMMING AS A SKILL.

    Coding is basically the process of creating codes from one language to another one.  It can also be called as a subset of Programming since it actually implements the initial steps of Programming. It involves writing codes in different languages as instructed. The machine can’t interact with human communications and it only understands the machine code which is the binary language. So, the main work of a coder is to translate the requirements into machine understandable language. This is the initial step of developing a software product.
    Programming is the process of developing an executable machine level program which can be implemented without any error. It is the process of formally writing codes so that the human inputs and corresponding machine outputs remain in sync. Creating code is the beginning steps and then programming is used to analyze and implement the same and produce the proper machine level output.

    HOW THIS CAN CREATE WEALTH.

    We are in a digitalized era where everything is leave the backyards of analogue for computers and the internet general. A coder/Programmer is not only employable in any organization but can self-sustain, employ himself and dish out the content he wants his clients for a price.

    Coding empowers one to do many things you wouldn’t otherwise be able to do. These things include handcrafting your own websites, becoming a career coder or even starting a technology business. Most importantly, you’ll be able to understand the technology shaping your world.

    TALENT DEVELOPED.

    CRITICAL THINKING.

    Critical thinking is the analysis of facts to form a judgment. It could also include the rational, skeptical, unbiased analysis, or evaluation of factual evidence. Everybody ordinarily can think but not everyone has the ability to critically think especially under pressure to solve complex facts and to arriving at a credible judgement.

    HOW TALENT COULD BE USED TO CREATE WEALTH.

    Any organization draws its life from certain assumptions about the way things should be done. Consider institutions in any society – Courts, governments, businesses, schools, e.t.c, before such institution can change, those assumptions need to be loosened up or reinvented.
    Critical thinking also helps us uncover bias and prejudice. This is a first step toward communicating with people of other races and cultures, these can create a conducive atmosphere for businesses, to thrive and thereby creating wealth.

    Discuss your talent and the skill you have developed and how you plan to develop it to create wealth for you and take you out of poverty in the next 5years.

    According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, a talent is a special ability that allows someone to do something well while Oxford Learners Dictionary defines talent as having natural ability to do something well. My talent is cooking. Yes, I said cooking. I enjoy it not only when am hungry or for the love of food, I do it because cooking piqued my interest at an early age when my responsibilities in the kitchen were geared at helping my mother as the first of two male children. I enjoy the creation of new flavours, dishes and feel at home in the kitchen. It is scarcely heard of in our society today that a male child or man takes an interest in the affairs of the Kitchen which he was shielded from at an earlier age.
    I honed my culinary skills at the feet of my mother who is a stupendous cook and have since deputized for her numerously in the kitchen as she balances or juggles other responsibilities. Presently my field of education is far reaching from my talent. Practically, I have had spells in the kitchen under various stewards employed in restaurants and hotel and can claim to have picked up a few things in the kitchen. My talent is put to test everyday as I am able to feed not only myself with a variety of meals but others. Looking ahead, the immediate short term goal would be to go for more culinary courses during my holiday/ pass-time from school in a bid to further improve myself. I haven’t cooked in commercial or large quantities that often, so I would be trying to fine tune that aspect.
    I see myself working part time while I further my education (M.Sc) in the next 3-5 years. Opening a restaurant is an objective of mine whether catering for it/ funding it. I have a passion for Economics hence a B.Sc. in Economics and so the owning of a restaurant will surely be a pass time or side investment . In the present day and time where we live in, the tertiary educated (degree holders) are marauding about looking for jobs that fit the mountain of qualifications they have acquired to no avail. The ability to utilize your talents and skills acquired is paramount to self-empowerment on a small scale and economic growth at large. Just imagine a reduction in poverty, increase in self-sufficiency, decrease in dependency and increase in the Human Development Index of Nigeria. Nigeria will and can be great again, if and only if you and I aren’t solely dependent on regimes or past & present administrations that have failed us times without number. And I am ready, hope you are too!!!

    There are several talents I have discovered within myself among which include: teaching, creativity, counseling, marketing and consultancy. Among all these talents the ones I have passion for is teaching and consultancy. In my aim of converting these talents into a creative businesses, so far I have acquired the following skills: research skills, communication skills, leadership and organization skills and lot more to be acquired.
    How do I intend to use these talents and skills to create wealth for myself in the short run?
    First, I will start with my teaching talent or skills. In the short run, I have the intention of having a lesson academy where secondary students who are preparing for their o level and UTME can easily acquire knowledge and pass their exams . Also, I have the intention of combining it with a computer academy where students can acquire a degree on computer science. While in the long term, my intention is to have a school of my own. The nature of the school is a vocational school where people can learn their desired skills and be able to create employment for themselves once they are done with their programme.
    Second is my marketing talent/skill. I have noticed within me that I have that gift of convincing people to do something even if it is against their own will. My aim is to use this gift and create a marketing firm where I can employ people of the same spirit that I can work with to create a world outstanding marking firm. Though I don't have the intention of achieving this goal in the short run, but I know and I'm convinced that in the long run this will indeed create wealth for me.
    The last but not the least is consultancy skills. I intend of having a consultant firm that will specialize in businesses such as corporate printing, publishing, concept aids, packaging/branding, importing and exporting, etc. this as well can be achieved in long run because it requires a lot capital and skills which I'm yet to acquire.

    My SKILL
    I am good at drawing and interior design. That is, I have developed drawing and interior design as skills. I certainly made my room looks pretty nice. These skills are needed as I pursue the talent of fashion designing. A strong drawing skill, for example, is a must in fashion, as designers need to be able to take a concept and get it down on paper.
    I, developed these skills in the following ways:
    I take classes to practice drawing ball gowns, dresses, pants or whichever garments I envision myself designing
    Studying up on interior design
    Mess around with computer programs for interior design
    Cultivating an awesome interest
    Fashion designers need not only the ability to draw but also a good eye for detail. For example, how does one envision the pleats falling on a skirt or a blouse cinching at the waist? It is often the detail that makes a product unique, so this skill cannot be overlooked, even if one is great at visualizing and drawing. Design requires a good sense of texture, color, and fabric. For example, one needed to know whether a garment would work best in silk chiffon or another material. One would also need to know which combinations of colors will be most flattering on a piece of clothing. It is these differences that make a design stand out.
    By investing in these skills (drawing and interior design) and exploring it further, I can develop my skills into a talent in the next 5 years.

    ABOUT MY TALENT
    My talent is fashion and design. Fashion and design is the art of applying design, aesthetic and natural beauty to clothing and its accessories. It is influenced by cultural and social attitudes, and has varied over time and place. Fashion designers work in a number of ways in designing clothing and accessories such as bracelets and necklaces. Because of the time required to bring a garment onto the market, designers must at times anticipate changes to consumer tastes
    In the world of fashion, every new product or style begins with an idea. Fashion design is defined by the creators of new footwear, clothing and accessories. Fashion designing involves a set of skills that range from market research and creativity to sketching and fabric selection. The fashion designers guide the process from inception to production.
    Designers conduct research on fashion trends and interpret them for their audience. Their

    HOW TO DEVELOP MY TALENT IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS
    By enrolling in a fashion institute or take classes at a two- or four-year college to brush up on the skills you have and develop the ones you need to be a fashion designer.
    Setting of Limitations: In order to increase my creative thinking to aid the development of my talent in the next 5 years, I will set limits for myself, so I have to think outside the box to come up with solutions. I will set deadlines, budgets or any other type of limitation to increase my creative problem solving in the next 5 years. This will build my credibility as a creative problem solver as I come up with innovative solutions.
    Changing Things Up: If I find myself falling into a rut and doing the same thing every single day, then I will likely struggle to come up with new ideas. I will, therefore, change things up in my routine and break out of my rut in the next 5 years.
    Finding Good Mentors/Critics: Also, as a way of developing my talent on fashion and design in the next 5 years, I will find a good mentor or critic who can give me positive feedback and help me to keep moving forward. As my talent improves over time because of my dedication and my mentorship, people will hold me in greater respect, which would act as a further motivation to meeting up my fashion and design talent developing goals in the next 5 years.

    Talent, as we already know is the free-gift of God. I detine it as an ettra given to all human. (i.e). The gift God has deposited everyman. While skill is just a practice one can acquire or learn, or something you are passionate about, or something you do to keep yourself busy for a mean time or a life time.
    My talent therefore is acting (passing information through body language) and my skills is sowing sewing and designing clothes (both male and female). And how the both can help elevate foverty in my generation and next generation. How my skill can generate income- clothes, us we know is very necessary/important to every human. It is the only thing (material used to cover the nakedness sewing clothes, is a very nice business that can help both male and female. So how it can help me in future by God’s grace I sure been able to make clothes for some many persons around my locality (Enugu) and beyond, by doing this, so far it has brought money into my account, brought customers to me and a little bit opened my eyes to some hidden fact about clothing also exposed to a few person/a few nice tailors around.
    Sowing clothes really has made nelean how to talk to people especially my customers, thing a brand name also is a good roadway to establishing my own cloth company, clothing line business so far so good it has been my greatest joy since last year (miss FAB’s Troro) with my logo “life is too short to wear boring clothes” gives me more inspiration to make more clothes and also design more clothes for people by doing in bringing more money into my account, how its going to help my generation. “if by God’s grace, I leave this world any day lintend opening a school for clothing, sewing and designing for the young aspirants thereby elevating poverty from my generation.” With many challenges right now such as not having a swing machine, which in making little progress to it,sewing clothes remains the utmost thing every individual should aspire to learn

    TOPIC: MY TALENT/SKILL AND HOW I HOPE TO USE IT TO CREATE WEALTH AND DEVELOP THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY IN THE SHORT TERM (NEXT FIVE YEARS) AS WELL AS IN THE LONG TERM (NEXT TEN YEARS).
    A skill is the ability to carry out a task with determined results often within a given amount of time, energy, or both. While talent is the natural ability to do something well.They could also be said to be an innate ability to carry out or perform a particular task with minimal difficulty.

    For me, my talent is being able to learn how to do things easily. Growing up, I attended a primary school where we did a lot of arts and craft, and more often than not, my craft works were almost always one of the best in my class. I’ve discovered that I can get really creative with my hands just by watching a YouTube video, or reading a magazine, or even watching someone do something in front of me. After discovering this talent of mine, I’ve been able to develop some very useful skills based on that.

    Of all the skills I’ve developed, my favorite is tailoring. Like I said, I learn a lot just buy watching a video or reading a magazine, and in the past few years I’ve been finding myself doing a lot on research on tailoring and designing. At first it was just a hobby. I just enjoyed watching how people could put together pieces of cloth to make up a fancy dress or outfit. Then I realized that this was something I could go into, and enjoy. So I started watching more videos and reading more magazines. After a while, I decided to get serious, so I told my parents to allow me develop this skill. After a few phone calls, I got a private tailor to help me perfect this skill of mine. And so far, it has been successful, as I develop this my skill everyday that passes.

    Another skill I developed is cooking and baking. As a student, I spend a lot of time not on social media, but on this app called Pinterest. Well, it’s actually a kind of social media, but not like your typical WhatsApp and Instagram and Snapchat. It’s actually more useful. On Pinterest, I get a lot of ideas on how to do different things. Let’s take cooking and baking for example. I like watching videos on Pinterest on how to prepare different kinds of meals. And usually, after watching, I would try some of the recipes (at least the ones I could ‘afford’ out of my own pocket). For me, it was just a perfect way to keep myself busy.

    With these few skills of mine, I’ve been able to think of few ways to create wealth for myself in the future as an entrepreneur. With the skills I’ve developed in tailoring, I’ve decided to start up a fashion line, my own trend. I’ve also decided to maybe open up a tailoring school where I could also teach others how to develop this skill. I’ve also decided that I could start a blogger for other people out there that have passion for cooking. People who looks being in the kitchen, like me. This way, I would be creating wealth for myself, and at the same time, helping other people create wealth for themselves.

    ASSIGNMENT: GETTING OUT OF POVERTY WITH YOUR TALENTS AND SKILLS ACQUIRED

    According to the English Dictionary, talent can be defined as a marked natural ability or skill. Skill on the other hand can be defined as the capacity to do something well. Skills are usually acquired or learned as opposed to talent which is innate.
    I have a natural ability for writing. This was discovered during my secondary school days, when each time we were given assignments on essays, I always found it interesting and easy to write, also my leisure time, I would just start writing short stories. I have the likes of Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda Adichie as my role model and I intend to write like them or even better. I want to write books based on true challenges happening in the country, to pass a message across the nation and elicit help for those facing these challenges.
    I hope to develop my talent by taking classes online and reading a lot of books. I hope one day to write books that millions of copies will be sold thereby generating a lot of revenues for me and also my books getting me a Nobel peace prize.
    I also acquired a skill, Fashion and Dressmaking, while I was taking the program, I discovered that one cannot finish learning the skill because there would always be new styles, trends and so on and it got me thinking that I can actually bring together different designers under one building because they will always have different styles of dressmaking.
    I plan to one day, build a fashion house, where we would have different designers, tailors, runways where cloths made will be displayed by models. I discovered we have few fashion houses in the country so I hope mine would make a difference by making it the big. The revenue for this project will be gotten from revenues from my books or loans from financial institutions. I hope to create jobs for many tailors who operate on small scale. I hope to get investors both foreign and local. I am optimistic that this project will generate a lot of revenues and create wealth for me and my family thereby getting me out of poverty.

    SKILL
    Skill can be defined as the ability to do something well: the ability to do something well, usually gained through training or experience.
    THESE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS I DISCOVER AS MY GOD GIVEN TALENTS
    WORD OF WISDOM (Advising)
    The world is full of worries, stress, temptation and depression; people die every day because of heart failure and High Blood Pressure. In this situation they need someone to talk to them giving him/her hope of a better tomorrow and reasons why he should not give up.
    How I can develop this to reduce poverty.
    There are people whom God has used me in one way or the other to settle their problems; personal, martially etc, through my advice, chatting and other means. I believe strongly that if these people are in one good position or the other they can recommend me for the post of personal adviser, consultant in some field or even personal assistant. I can also get employed in any establishment because they have seen my sincerity during the cause of my conversation with them, or even recommend me in any establishment needing such services.
    TEACHING
    I delight in impacting lives either practically, socially, educational etc.
    I strongly believe and it has been confirmed by many people that I am a talented teacher. I drive joy in teaching and explaining things to people as much as I know. I teach people most of the things I feel will be useful to them and because of this; I have taught in many schools, I was also made the Vice Principle of All Saints International College Obollo-Afor 2016 till 2018. As a result of my exceptional performance in the school, the school management pleaded with me many times to continue as a part time teacher in the school but because of the distance I was not able to continue with them.
    I pray and look forward for an opportunity in any establishment or school where I can utilize this talent and develop my talent very well. In the next 3-5 years I might have finished my NYSC, married and maybe by God’s grace finished my master degree programme and qualified for any level of employment.
    I also desire to establish my own school in the next 5 years, a standard school that will be the beast in Enugu State. I can also establish a standard lesson center. By this I will be in the position of employing people and not complaining around or looking for employment.
    SKILLS

  187. SKILLS
    I have acquired so many skills as a young lady but because of time constraint I will talk on few of them.
    I discover in life and with the help of my parents and brothers, that skills are very essential in this part of the world especially Nigeria where we found ourselves and if you do not know how to do many things or better still something meaningful you are not and will never be useful to the society and to yourself, in this case nobody will like to associate with you because you are a liability to the society.
    As a result of this in 2007, after my junior WAEC, I wanted to go for holiday anywhere provided I didn’t stay at home and my brothers refuse and insisted I must enroll in computer training, I was not happy on their decision but because I had no option I obeyed. As a course of this training I was able to learn many packages even after the break I continued in the training.
    I have worked in many cyber café as a manager of which one of them is Fabs Construction and Computer Center Obollo-Afor, Chidubem Computer Center.
    How I can use this skill to reduce poverty
    I think with this knowledge and experiences gathered so far, I can work in any computer business center, ICT Company or any company using computers. If I have the opportunity and the resources it takes, it is my desire that in 2-5 years I will establish my own standard computer center where I can impact the computer skill on people and also do computer work for people, because am sure I can manage it well by God’s grace then employ people.
    SHOE MAKING SKILL
    I acquired this skill after my secondary education; I started with female shoes and later advanced to male shoes, pams, and simple wears. I have produce for some people but because of lack of equipment and resources am not able to produce as I desire.
    In 2-5 years to come I desire to develop a standard shoe making shop even as a girl because it is a very lucrative job.
    I also desire to be employed in any shoe making company and in this I can contribute to the development of the establishment and also earn well. I also desire to have a training center where I can be teaching people on how to make shoes. I think this will help reduce if not eradicate poverty.
    CATERING SKILL
    I acquired catering skill i.e how to produce many things like baking cakes, bread, buns, chin chin, pea nut, pop corn, ice cream etc.
    I wish to establish any of this as a business or work in any restaurant or company that are producing any of this. I can establish entrepreneurship center that is where I can be teaching people how to make some of these items. Through this I think poverty can be reduced.

  188. DETERGENT PRODUCTION
    I can make omo, soap, liquid soap, etc.
    In 2-5 years I will have a big production company where I can be manufacturing all this and also have trainee by this poverty is eradicated.
    FARMING SKILL
    My father is a good farmer, and we all as his children acquired this skill of farming perfectly and can manage many farming business e.g poultry farming, piggery farming, cattle rearing etc.
    If given the capital and all it takes I desire to have a big farm that will be bigger than my father’s farm in the next 5 years by Gods grace. I can also work in most of this farm because of the skill gathered so far.
    BEAD MAKING SKILL
    I can make beads like nickels, bags, earrings etc. In less than 5 years time I wish to have a big shop where I can make and sell these items and get huge amount of money. I can also work in bead making company.
    BINDING BOOKS
    I acquired this skill when I went for IT at Nnamdi Azikeiwe Library at binding section of the library and this has given me the ability to restore the condition of some of the information materials to its normal or original condition.
    With this knowledge I can be binding project for student and binding other information materials in hard copy. In next 5 years I can establish a big binding company and employ many people in the company by this poverty is totally away from them.
    COMPUTER OPERATOR
    I acquired computer skill since 2007 after my Junior Secondary School Examination at Avia Computer Center Obollo-Afor. God have blessed me so much with this skill. I have worked in many Caber Café like Chidubem computer center obollo-afor, I was made the teacher and manger of Fabs Construction, Computer Center Obollo-afor and Obyno telecommunication company.
    During this experiences I was outstanding among all the workers in these company, with this I believe so much that in the next 3-5years to come I will establish and develop my own caber cafe in a way that it will be the best in the whole of Enugu-State and beyond. It is my desire to employ people who will work under me because am going to break every wall of poverty in my generation through this. I will also establish a training center for people both young and old. I also seek to be employed in school, company, establishment etc any organization that has to do with computer operation.

    CONCLUSION
    These points discussed above and many more which because of time constraint I am not able to discuss them are the skills and talents I observed so far. I believe there are numerous ways in which these things can benefit me and the society and also help in reducing poverty and enriching the society. So I look forward for opportunities to utilize these skills.

    An essay about my talent and skills and how it will create wealth for me between now and five years time.
    Growing up as the last child in a family of nine, I had all the exposure I needed. Prior to my secondary school education, I never discovered my potentials all I knew was that I wanted to become a Roman Catholic priest. To crown it all I was the shy type. On the cause of my secondary school education, precisely in my SS3,I was made the labour prefect, the function got me exposed the more; on the cause of carrying out my function, I realized I had this charisma of talking to people ,gaining their attention and lecturing them, on a topic and each time I talk, I always get the audience I ever wanted and at the end of the speech I always get recommendations from my superior.

    Steps taken to further develop my talent
    As a teenager , I couldn’t interpret the meaning of what I was doing , I felt am just intelligent and that am only lecturing people based on what I read or studied and that which I have been taught. After my secondary school education, I joined a non-governmental organization, aimed at developing and empowering the youth and children. Each time I talk to people I feel happy and whenever I teach the younger ones I feel complete, having observed these ability of mine I decided to study education and probably become a teacher but after a failed attempt I changed my choice of course to Economics. Gradually I started drifting away from teaching.
    Skills I have acquired so far
    While I was waiting for admission into the university, I ventured into graphics design. It has always been one of the things I cherish. Currently am still learning and am doing pretty well not minding the challenges. I also hope to combine it with application development and networking.

    How I intend to create wealth with my talent and skills
    I will work hard to develop my ability of public speaking. I know I have lost track of speeding my ability but I hope I get to meet the right person that will help me. As a public and motivational speaker, I will be hired to deliver speech and public lectures and it will in turn generate income for me. With my knowledge of graphics design and other tech. ideas, I plan setting up an ICT empire that can employ nothing less than 1000 graduates. By harnessing my skill and with knowledge as an economist, I will be able to create jobs be self-employed and be an employer of labour

    Under this my intension, I will specialized in the following products:
    Egg production and distribution.

    Rearing of parent stocks for production of table eggs.
    Animal feeds production.
    What motivated me to develop this talent and skill includes the following:-
    It’s profitability.
    It is easier than other livestock production.
    To see the birds grow and produce eggs gives much pleasure.
    My value proposition especially for parent stock production.
    Poultry industry creates jobs and provides market for locally poultry management.
    Production of egg, meat, poultry manure and other poultry products minimizes or reduces unemployment especially for white cola jobs.
    It is profit oriented.
    Chicken is low in cholesterol unlike other red meats.

    Every person possesses certain skills and talent, that makes us different from others. We often use the terms talent and skill interchangeably, without knowing the fact that these are different from one another. While talent is an inborn ability or natural aptitude of a person which is often hidden and needs recognition. It means, being good in a certain activity, without actually learn.
    Unlike skill, which is a learnt ability, and it can be developed in someone if he/she put his time and efforts in it. The efforts need to be voluntary, systematic and sustained, to acquire a skill and satisfactorily and sustained to acquire a skill and satisfactorily undertake various tasks and activities.
    Though I enjoy doing a lot of things but what I enjoy doing most is to cook, cooking is one of those things that comes naturally for me, and I inherited it from my mother, i started cooking when I was little, it’s like an inborn ability. Cooking is something that gives me great joy and satisfaction whenever I am engaged in it.
    I have other things am good at such as singing and sports but my passion in cooking supersedes them all. After I am through with getting my degree here, I would like to go to a culinary school where I can develop and expand my cooking ability.
    After that I can set up my own restaurant, become a culinary teacher or open a blog to offer cooking recipes for a fee. I believe that through this way I can be able to make money, become financially stable and alleviate poverty within the next five years.

    Talent is a natural ability which someone has. Skills is the knowledge and capacity to do something
    My developed talent is dancing, I love dancing and I believe dancing was born inside of me from an early age I realized that I was born with this talent because I loved to dance, I was involved in all competition and presentations of dance because the dance was what I liked what I wanted to every day, I liked when I danced because the people were happy when I showed them my talent and I was also happy that the people enjoy what I did.
    The dance is like an air because it doesn't have direction, when you start to move you don't have direction also of your movement you just want to express with your hands, with your body, with your kind of music that you dance. The dance has movements rhythm, motivation dreams and everything is in one word 'dance'
    There are various method of earning through dancing skills and a famous one is posting online dance blogs and giving lesson to others. Blog is not a new term to market and almost everyone even kids understand. The word of this incredibly popular blog system.

    ONES TALENT AND HOW TO DEVELOP IT AND MEANS IT
    COULD FETCH MONEY YEARS TO COME.

    I believe everyone has unique skills& talents, and that is what makes each one of us special. People have skills in areas such as playing an instrument, playing soccer, been artistic, acting, singing and many more people realize their talents at different stages in their lives, giving back to the community by sharing the skill one has is what makes the difference. Everyone has at least one thing they are really good at. When each of us brings our individual talents together, the world becomes a master piece painting.
    I have a talent of WRITING since early days of the early 1990s, days a primary school, could remember vividly that I was involve in different writing competition within the school environment and also the ones I myself represented the school (EXTERNAL COMPETION)i.e. this writing completion means writing on topics given to you offhand.
    But it seems like I had over confidence in myself that I couldn’t work hard or try writing anything again that comes in my mind or maybe I say as I grow I loose interest in writing but that does not mean I can’t deliver in writing when the situation pops up but I guess it will be poor and won’t reach expectations.
    The man on top of the mountain didn’t just fall there. He got there one step at a time. I guess things take time if you wanted to fly a plane, what would you do? You’d find a ground school and take lessons, what would you do? You would definitely find a piano teacher and take classes. What makes writing any different? Writing is an art, but it’s a learned art. To ask someone how to write a story is like asking?
    How do I climb a mountain? you don’t, unless you’ve had a training. And NO, it’s not a rocket science, but writing is something that needs to be studied and practiced. Anybody can sit down and write crap.You will see it all the time in self pubbed books.
    In order to write stories that people want to read you will need to understand how to put one together. There is a definite pattern and ryththm to it& there are certain expectations from the editors & publishing houses as to how your story is laid out. You will need good imaginations, one that can look at a situation and pictures all sorts of different scenarios.
    Take classes in writing: grammar & punctuation (very important lots of self published books are swimming in glaring errors &typos), character building dialogue, plotting, pacing, point of view (pov), inner&outer conflicts, subplots, scenes and sequels, killer opening lines, and satisfying ending.
    Read a lot, get a feed for how a story is told; how it starts, how it progresses through the story to a satisfying end. See how your favorite author keeps us interested.
    With all this I think if I can put them to work I will definitely get better & also make money through it in the future because not most writers in Nigeria would be looking for how to make money as a writer.
    The truth is that is simply difficult to make money as a writer in Nigeria, but definitely I have many steps to climb on to secure the bag i.e. by opening a blogger, Become a freelancer, writing handbook and selling on my own.

With my foresight ability, creativity and strength, I have been able to play in all the midfield positions in football.
    I intend to develop my football talent by training and practicing regularly because hardwork they say beats talent, so I intend to working Hard in other to attain the maximum fitness I need to excell in football because for a player to give his best or perform well in the field of play he must be 100% fit. I also intend to develop my football talent by fearuring regularly in football competitions in school and also going for trials, through that I migh get scouted and signed to a good football club that will be paying me well. In the area of acting, due to circumstances I have not been able to push it further, it's not something I can combine with my education considering the nature of my course, economics, so my plan is to go into it after school.
    Coming to my skills, I'm good in DJ work, I can mix music and give the crowd a good sound of music. I can also paint, it's a skill I learnt when I was in secondary school, I have painted good number of houses. Another skill I have is rendering services to customers like selling goods like drinks in a bar and any other goods you can think of. With my ability to endure provocative attitudes displayed by customers a times I can serve In a customer service company like bar and restaurant. Also with my soft and tender words I can sell goods to people. With these skills coupled with knowledge from education, I can go into any business or open my own company after school which will create so many create so much wealth for me.

    In the short term, my talent and skills has been paying me well. I get paid after playing any football competition. With my ability to tenderly attend to customers I have been able to work in a hotel that paid me well and I also earn money for painting houses.

    In the long term, my talent and skills is going to be a good source of income to me because I can go into any of them and make money for myself.

    TALENTS
    Closely related to temperament is talent. These are those unique gifts with which one is endowed by God, and which if well horned can lift one to the highest status of life. Your talents are strong indication of the direction God wants your life to go and what he wants you to accomplish in life. Therefore, in choosing our career or profession, we must consider both our temperament and talents. Success becomes easier when you choose a course that helps develop your talent, and a career or profession that suit your personality and in which your talent is amply put to use.
    MY IDENTIFIED SKILLS
    Managerial skills
    Good advisory skill
    Competence in the use of Microsoft applications (Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc.)
    Excellent interpersonal relationship
    Analytical mind and keen eye for details
    Effective communication skill (ability to create a good rapport)
    MY IDENTIFIED TALENTSGOD’S GIFT
    Virtue
    Hard work
    Patience
    Honesty
    singing
    “A sudden fortune will dwindle away, accumulation little by little is the way to riches” (Prov.13:11). Development of my skills together with my God given gifts will lead to a sure way to wealth. The secret of lasting wealth is virtue, hard work, patients, modesty; honesty etc. An example of a successful wealthy man is Andrew Carnegie. Many people had similar ambition as Andrew, but lacking the virtue of patience, hard work and seriously tempted by the influence, fame and false reverence that often comes with affluence; they were easily lured into the path of quick riches. The most important thing is neither to make money nor at what age it is made but to create a lasting wealth that will improve your standard of living and the Nigeria Economy
    I have had lots of working experiences with the following skills above; during the holidays I often work as a receptionist and a computer operator at my place of work and as a financial secretary in a group in church. How I intend to develop these skills is already being undertaken as I am currently in the higher institution (university), to broaden my horizon on all of these skills as I am in economics department where I will be able to learn more and improve in all my skills in the short term.
    After my short term plans which is to develop my talent and skills, in the period of five to ten years, I would have been established in the profession of my choice which is to be a business tycoon thereby giving back to the society through my services rendered for the purpose of increasing the standard living of our country and also for the growth of the Nigerian economy
    In conclusion, using these talents and skills I will be able to create wealth and develop the Nigerian Economy.

    TALENTS
    Closely related to temperament is talent. These are those unique gifts with which one is endowed by God, and which if well horned can lift one to the highest status of life. Your talents are strong indication of the direction God wants your life to go and what he wants you to accomplish in life. Therefore, in choosing our career or profession, we must consider both our temperament and talents. Success becomes easier when you choose a course that helps develop your talent, and a career or profession that suit your personality and in which your talent is amply put to use.
    MY IDENTIFIED SKILLS
    Managerial skills
    Good advisory skill
    Competence in the use of Microsoft applications (Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc.)
    Excellent interpersonal relationship
    Analytical mind and keen eye for details
    Effective communication skill (ability to create a good rapport)
    MY IDENTIFIED TALENTSGOD’S GIFT
    Virtue
    Hard work
    Patience
    Honesty
    singing
    “A sudden fortune will dwindle away, accumulation little by little is the way to riches” (Prov.13:11). Development of my skills together with my God given gifts will lead to a sure way to wealth. The secret of lasting wealth is virtue, hard work, patients, modesty; honesty etc. An example of a successful wealthy man is Andrew Carnegie. Many people had similar ambition as Andrew, but lacking the virtue of patience, hard work and seriously tempted by the influence, fame and false reverence that often comes with affluence; they were easily lured into the path of quick riches. The most important thing is neither to make money nor at what age it is made but to create a lasting wealth that will improve your standard of living and the Nigeria Economy
    I have had lots of working experiences with the following skills above; during the holidays I often work as a receptionist and a computer operator at my place of work and as a financial secretary in a group in church. How I intend to develop these skills is already being undertaken as I am currently in the higher institution (university), to broaden my horizon on all of these skills as I am in economics department where I will be able to learn more and improve in all my skills in the short term.
    After my short term plans which is to develop my talent and skills, in the period of five to ten years, I would have been established in the profession of my choice which is to be a business tycoon thereby giving back to the society through my services rendered for the purpose of increasing the standard living of our country and also for the growth of the Nigerian economy
    In conclusion, using these talents and skills I will be able to create wealth and develop the Nigerian Economy.

    Discuss your identified talents and the skills you have developed. And then how do you intend to develop your talent and skill to earn money/create wealth for you and take you out of poverty.

    The act of doing business has been what I have engaged in since my young age. I discovered my business ability at a very tender age probably at the age of 4 or less, reason might be because I am the last born in my family and spend so much time in my mum’s business place. As I grow up, the acumen to do business keep growing with me and till date am still heading my brother’s business and I look forward to having my own business anytime soon before or after graduation.
    On the other hand, I have developed cooking skill. On the quest to eliminate poverty and enhance living standard in my family, I joined catering company during my secondary school days and ever since then has developed a good skill and love for cooking and events.
    This special skill has promoted me to the post of assistant manager in my company and has made me travel to almost all the states in Nigeria (especially southern).
    Conclusively, in the long run, I wish to have my own catering group/company alongside my business and make life more comfortable. I can be a teacher and still carry out the catering job, this will bring income from both sides, not only will it bring income, my family members will also benefit from it because they will be able to consume good meal at all times.

    Discuss your identified talents and the skills you have developed. And then how do you intend to develop your talent and skill to earn money/create wealth for you and take you out of poverty.

    Talent is the ability of someone to have natural ability to be good at something especially without being taught (eg) of talent are artistic talent, music, painting, songwriter etc. And skill is an ability to do an activity or job well, especially because you have practiced it. (eg) of skills are sewing, makeup, etc. kly developing talent is makeup, its something I have always loved doing right from secondary school till date, I have never make girls up for their birthday photo shoots, matriculcttions and pageantry competition.
    From my first year in UNN I have always made money from making girls up though not so much money because I still don’t have the complete makeup set. I have so much plans for this talent of mine first I would love to develop it more by applying and attending a makeup tutorial in which after two months or a month of training you will be given a makeup box and some makeup sets. If I achieve this I will be able to make more money and be able to buy other makeup things and complete the box with a complete makeup box I will be able to go for Bridal makeup where I will be paid not less than # 70,000 per job. I will seally love to achieve this now that I am still in school that way will have enough customers and be able to make a name for myself before leaving school.
    Then when I finally leave school I will love to open a makeup shop where people can come on a daily basis for their makeup and also buy their makeup products. Because I will love to sell makeup products too.
    In the longriun, I will love to be able to have my own makeup company. That is where makeups are made. And as we know the entertainment industry plays a huge role in the economic development many countries. When a movies or television shoots films on location, it brings with it job oppourtuinities for makeup artists, alstomiers and other sets. Thereby creating room for economic development. And also if a makeup industry is created in Nigeria it will reduce the rate of import of makeup products from other countries and this will equally lead to economic development.

    A DISCUSSION ON THE TALENT AND SKILL I HAVE DEVELOPED AND MY PLANE ON HOW I WILL USE THIS TALENT TO CREATE WEALTH AND BE OUT OF POVERTY BETWEEN NOW AND IN THE LONGRUN.
    Finding or discovering one’s talent and developing it set one at the pace of achieving goals (some life’s goals); among these goals could be creating wealth and moving away from poverty.
    I realized I am naturally endowed with making hair or hair dressing. When I was 8 years old I started making my aunty and mother’s hairs; I enjoyed doing it, and my relatives also encouraged me. At the age 15, I was enrolled into hair dressing school which made me do better in it. People admired my handwork and also patronized me. I made some money with it and was able to solve my immediate needs. I have also advanced my skill into cosmetology; I can now produce powder, soap, body cream, after-shave, which I learnt from my aunty (this was her occupation then). This has been of great significant to me. I developed a personal liberty and an initiative to produce something of my own. I ventured into producing powder locally; I explored the business world and came up with the idea of labeling my product. People patronized my product as it was bearing the name “Nkem’s Powder”.
    I believe that with a favourable environment and government actions, my goal which is to increase productivity in order to create wealth for myself and move away from poverty will be achieved in a long-run. This I intend doing by establishing a hair dressing school and a small enterprise for the production and sales of cosmetics. This will improve the material life of many people, because I will also employ and maintain my employees; the standard of living will be achieved.

    CREATION OF WEALTH USING MY SKILLS AND TALENTS
    Talents and skills ought to be one of the fundamental tools and stepping stone to a person's life in relation to his or her ambition, dreams and aspirations. This being the case, one has to develop what he has, be it Talent or skills.It is therefore a thing of necessity to see your in-born talent or developed skills as an instrument used for creation of wealth.
    I will therefore use myself as a case study to talk about how I can use my talents and skills to create wealth in Years to come, say minimum of 5years and maximum of 15years.
    My life as a young lady has been quite challenging yet filled with things that gives me joy and fulfilment and in it lies talents I have discovered and skills I have developed and with this I have a strong believe as well as being enthusiastic of how far I can go with them only if my efforts appear or is devoid of lackadaisical attitudes. I will start with my talent.
    SINGING
    This, as a talent of mine is one of which I have passion for and I tend to improve by enrolling into a musical academy where I can train my voice for the better and also supplement by learning an instrument which will aid in my rhythmical flow when performing. After I must have acquired a great deal of knowledge from this, I can independently write and voice my own songs. Through social media, my songs will be heard and will go a long way till it gets to the point I can feature with other artists and with such opportunities, greater heights to wealth will be attained. I have a dream that one-day my voice would be heard in my motherland and the rest of the world.
    My skills includes:
    CREATIVE WRITING:my best friend has always been my pen and paper cos it know more about me than any other person. I always see myself wanting to talk,lift their spirits or give solutions to their problems.i found out that I could reach a million and one people with just one piece of write-up talk more of when it talks about them. With this in mind, great inspiration to write emanates giving me hope that I can bless more and more lives especially through social media. When I write books and sell, I can make money from there.
    PUBLIC SPEAKING:This is a skill I love so much because it renders my fears useless and my anxieties defenseless.My nervousness before carrying out any form of public speech helps to build my courage in the sense that such a joy I feel coming out to share my knowledge and enlighten people.How much I love to be heard.TO make my wealth with this, I can host shows or pep talks ,and that can gradually make me popular and help me financially though gradually.
    The creation of my wealth isn't just limited to the above exposition but because of some constraints, I will stop here.We should always try to discover what we can do and use it in an efficacious manner to make use better people. REMEMBER-NO ONE CAN CREATE YOUR WEALTH FOR YOU!!!

    WHAT IS TALENT?
    A talent is the skill that someone has to do something very well that people usually like and that is difficult. It is an ability that someone is born with. People say they are "born with a talent". Someone who has talent is called talented . Talented people may have more than one talent. Skills people commonly value as talents are entertaining, beautiful, or impressive for a different reason like Music , dancing , acting or sports .
    The realization of my talent in music rose when I first partook in a school singing group while in the junior secondary school. We were randomly selected to write songs during weekends and bring it for corrections and as I see myself writing I felt happy because it became one way I can express my feelings/emotion, I also found out that it was just flowing with ease.
    When I performed those written songs for close friends in the street, they loved it and asked me to keep it up and take it very serious believing that one day it will take me far.
    I wrote my first official song while in Senior Secondary School 1(SSS 1) And had to record it late during the SSS 2(Senior Secondary School 2) and had to record it late during the SSS 2 because of cost constraint. Finally the song was released and I got to let some close friends and relatives listen to it before promoting it via the radio station and social media platforms in order to get a larger audience/fans , So far so good I have been favored & graced because in all the events I have performed, people feel happy and good comments kept coming based on my song and performance skill because I combine it with dancing as it is my first discovered talent in life.
    As an upcoming artist aspiring to make it big into the entertainment industry someday and also go into show business where I will definitely be booked for event performance, I intend sending my track Demos to record labels within the country and outside, make some adverts for my songs etc. While doing all of these stuffs I hope and I keep praying that someday a qualified record label or sponsorship will reach-out for me and finally get a recording deal for me to sign with them and the terms/conditions will be agreed by both parties.
    I believe that this my dream will surely come to reality and I will get to do that which I crave for, and I know there are other upcoming artists like me in the country who also aim/dream big for their music career because it is a one way out of poverty and a reduction in the youth dependency of employment on the government.

    Discuss your identified talent and the skills you have developed and how do you intend to develop your talent and skills to create wealth for you in the Medium term (now & 5 years.) and Long term (10 years and above)
    Talent is simply defined as a God-given ability that is innate in man. Growing up as a kid, I have discovered that I have a natural flair for music especially hip hop genre. I so much love and do music such that the lifestyle of musicians is even glaringly surpassing my corporate lifestyle. In fact my craven for music and usual freestyles earned me the nickname “Fino” because according to friends and fans my style of singing is mimicry of the Nigerian super hip hop star Phyno.
    Skills emphasize what I have learned or acquired humanly and physically. I am skillfully an electrician. I gained the knowledge after I left secondary school so as not to remain idle while waiting for admission into tertiary institution. Other than electrical skills, I also acquired computer skills in so many software packages and graphic editing applications.
    The question then is how do I intend to develop wealth for myself within the short and long term?
    To do this in the short term, I engage so much in local music contest and freestyle battles. This usually leaves me with monetary benefits or gadgets and accessories. I also perform in local shows wherein I get something monetary to cater for my need. Also I wire and repair light for my lodge mates. This has helped me to escape poverty in the interim; that is as a student.
    In the Long run perhaps in ten years’ time, I would have expanded my brand into a big record label. Once I graduate, I will take my musical career to the next level. Also I will build a big complex for the sales and distribution of electrical appliances with the money I will get from m musical career. Through this means, I will not just escape out of poverty; I will also liberate a whole lot of persons from poverty.

    Drawing and painting ILUNO EBUKA CHARLES
    Growing up as a child I realized that I had a special skill of drawing back in school, my drawings always emerge as the best drawing in the whole class. Given any image, miraculously would draw it perfectly, so I concluded that I have the talent of drawing.
    As an adult, sometimes I draw people for money, so its already benefiting me partially, pictures fo my family and loved ones I use for experiment. I draw and paint to make it look like an expert work. Presently there is a big picture portrait in my living room of my beloved mother and it is my hand work.
    What am trying to say in essence is that I have a very big talent of drawing and painting which after the work, it will look like the actual person, drawing requires concentration and careful writing I also sketch which requires you to be very fast. If not you are likely to make a mistake, drawing is not as easy as people think, but for me I think I was born with it, that is why it is called a talent. It can be beneficial to me, if I make it a profession, like collecting drawing contracts from, firms, schools, individuals and banks, and private enterprises so by doing all these with the grace of god, my talent can be transformed into wealth

    Since a talent is said to be specie ability to do something by an inherent, inborn or something that is naturally occurring without being taught or learned, A talent is referred to as a “GIFT” where as a skill is an ability obtained through practice and can be mastered indisciously. My developing talent is being a skilled chef.
    HOW I INTEND TO CREATE WEALTH WITH MY SKILL AND AID IN ECONOMIC Development
    By practicing and mastering my skills as a chef gaming global Recognition would judisciously boost my mode of income and also aid in my country is economic development, it is well known that economic growth is only sustainable if all countries have tood security without a country owned and country driven food security strategy there will be obstacles and additional cust to global, rejional and country level economic growth. As an entrepreneur in the food market I can use my skills to support new ventures, add to economic development, enable new markets to be developed and live wealth created for example in Nigeria we are try in to intensify our efferts to boost the production of cocoa so as to benefit from the global market where me product is currently high in demand. According to a search carried out by Laurent pipitone of the international cocoa organization the demand for cocoa products, is surging, while the supply of cocoa has struggled, it is known that cocoa is one of the basic products used by chefs to process meals, therefore as a chef who has created wealth for myself, focusing on the local production of cocoa in my country which I know are widely used by other. Recognized chefs to make “chillys” and chocolate for baking and pastries it would be wise to start up a local cocoa farm since the government pays more attention to the production of cocoa in Nigeria, now having a local cocoa farm. Which are made into chillys and which flaroures for cooling baking would be efficient in the fovd market and in the process help to create wealth for myself and aid in economic development.

    DISCUSS YOUR TALENT AND YOUR SKILLS AND HOW YOU INTEND TO DEVELOP THEM TO CREAT WEALTH AND WIPE AWAY POVERTY

    In developing countries like Nigeria who is going through a lot of economic challenges the need for skills cannot be overemphasized. And also this should bring us to the understanding that skill and talent works hand in hand.
    Therefore, my talent is acting. Acting is something that distinguish me among many people though at some point, craved so much to join the Nollywood but because of some constraints. I couldn’t but still working towards it, and this time “Christian movies”. My skill which will be working alongside my talent is “baking”. Baking is one thing I derive so much joy in doing I make pea nuts, as well and I am still learning lots more. My baking started in just one day. An aunty came to my place she baked once that was how it all started; I had to go online to Youtube learning different types of cake making and how to ice the cake.
    Furthermore, I hope in years to come when I have established in acting with few friends I m working with now, if need be that cake should be needed in our productions definitely we won’t another person to make the cake. But more also as God may have it gotten a brand name “NMA’s TREAT” your satisfaction our priority say’s Nma’s treat. I have been able to start it up here in school. I make birthday cakes, sometimes for church events also.
