Alayande Zainab, the Chief Executive Officer of Zeinny Crafts. The Young Nigerian entrepreneur recently graduated from University of Lagos (UNILAG) at the just concluded 52nd convocation ceremony of one of Nigeria’s best higher institutions of learning where she studied Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) Cell Biology and Genetics. Zeinny Crafts is a leading handmade footwear brand in Africa. It is established in 2016.
The premium lady cobbler appreciated all her family, friends and well wishers who celebrated with her during her convocation ceremony from the University of Lagos.
Zainab thanked Almighty Allah for the support so far, she said, “I feel super excited and grateful to God almighty for making this a successful journey for me.
From my writing of Jamb for 5 consecutive years just to gain admission into UNILAG, to my dropping out of UNILAG in my first year, 2nd semester and resuming back only 2 days to examination.
I didn’t attend classes, I didn’t partake in Lab ( lab carries 30%), I didn’t do tests coz I definitely had made up my mind of not returning.
My mom was one who said if I didn’t return, she’d disown me, and coz of the level of respect and love I have for her, I had to go back and just sit for the exams.
I was expecting Carry over’s upon carry over’s because I didn’t even know the course codes, let alone knowing the topics that were taught.
But guess what, not even a single carry over did I get.
Not a single carry over, nor extra year over my stay in UNILAG as a SUCCESSFUL STUDENTPRENEUR.
And here I am today, celebrating my Convocation Ceremony from the University of Lagos, Nation’s pride.
I am more grateful to God for the good people he has surrounded me with.
You believed and supported me even without being an immediate family of mine.
But here we are now, one big family
I love and appreciate you all.”
Zainab works at Zeinny Crafts has attracted the prominent personalities such as the former Governor of Lagos State, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Professor Ogundipe, Honourable Desmond Elliot, Senator Babafemi Ojudu and others.
