Lagos, Nigeria; 18 July 2018.

The Dare2Dream project, a youth empowerment platform designed to expose young creative talents to entrepreneurial skills will be getting the much-needed sponsorship support from FMN, one of the biggest food and agro-allied brands in Nigeria.

The dare2Dream project which is already popular with youths in the country is in its 5th season, and promises to feature a host to exciting opportunities for new talents in the performing arts, including Fashion design, Modelling and Music.

Speaking at an unveiling ceremony recently, Mrs. Modupeola Babalola, the Marketing Manager Golden Penny Pasta said: “We are always excited at the opportunity to invest in initiatives that inspires and nurture the creative Nigerian spirit. It is already a well-known fact that the Nigerian youth is driven with a passion to succeed. This year, Golden Penny Pasta is honored to be a part of that process through the Dare2Dream Project.”

As part of the structure for this year’s campaign, FMN will be actively involved with the Dare2Dream campus tour, which will be visiting several campuses for a talent search. FMN will sponsor several mini cooking competitions at each campus and avail students an opportunity to win fantastic prizes.

“It is no news that Culinary art is a recognized form of creativity all over the world. So, this year, we would be on the lookout for young ambassadors that show true potentials of becoming masters in the culinary arts. Nigeria’s number 1 Pasta brand, Golden Penny Pasta, will be on hand to provide the right nutritional support and the vitality that they need to succeed in their dream.” She adds.

On her part, Francesca Rosset, Managing Partner and producer of the Dare2Dream project in Nigeria, informs:
“This year the project will go beyond the university tours into a boot camp. During the boot camp, we will host a special masterclass on cooking, where we hope to reinforce the idea that creativity must be fueled by good nutrition.”
