Ifeyinwa Obienu Emerges of the Samsung Dream Your Dream Competition

 Lawyer and philanthropist, Ifeyinwa Obienu, who is also a volunteer with the Destiny Trust, an NGO, has emerged the winner in the just concluded Samsung’s Picture Your Dream competition. The palm selfie contest availed Nigerians the opportunity to express their dreams. The competition kicked off at the end of August 2015.

 The contest is an offshoot of the company’s current theme, Dream Your Dream, which inspires progress and spurs dreams to success, while also nurturing the aspiration of young Nigerians who have great dreams with the potential to impact the country positively. The other six finalists of the Picture Your Dream campaign were also rewarded with Samsung Galaxy J7 devices.
''Getting disadvantaged children off the streets has been a dream that I have been nurturing and working towards. I really appreciate Samsung's support in accomplishing my dream. Thank you Samsung for making this possible and for keeping to your words,” stated Ms Obienu.

“It was truly a challenge shortlisting the top seven finalists for this contest,” said Jumoke Okikiolu, Head, Product Marketing (IM), Samsung Electronics West Africa. “Many of the over 1,300 entries initially received were very inspiring. The seven finalists selected after the first round had a busy time soliciting votes from friends and family via social media. Ms. Obienu’s dream to ‘help destitute kids get off the street’ pulled the highest number of votes in the second and final round,’’ Ms. Okikiolu added.
