Alswell Mann is a 25 year-old young man who suddenly lost his Dad when he was 11. Life for Alswell has been pretty rough as the mantle of responsibility suddenly fell on him at such a young age. His mum struggled to make ends meet for him and his younger sister; She did all she could to provide food and shelter and put them through school while juggling several jobs at a time. Sometime in 2018, she suddenly fell ill and couldn’t work anymore and Alswell became saddled with even more responsibilities.
Alswell remains focused, resilient and is determined to reach for his goals and achieve his dreams. He had the idea to acquire Fashion Design skills and create his own fashion brand. He taught himself and was able to pick up the skill very quickly. He started to put his self-taught tailoring skills to practical use and had a few clients. He got admission into Ekiti State University sometime in 2019 and had to move to Ekiti. His sister had to also lose an admission in order to take care of their aging mum. Moving to Ekiti made him lose the little client base he had been able to garner due to distance. This has made things harder as he now has to cover his school fees and other responsibilities as his means of livelihood continue to dwindle. He still is very passionate about starting his own clothing line and he strongly believes in creating a legacy for himself and his generation.
This fundraiser is to help him achieve his dreams. He will be able to attend a proper Fashion School in Lagos, Nigeria to hone his skills and also have some capital to kick off his Fashion dream. We solicit for your help in making this happen and will appreciate your contributions no matter how small. No amount is too small as drops of water make a mighty ocean.
