    Roger Hatchuel Student Academy

    Chinalurumogu Eze, a third-year Mass Communication student at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, is the winner of the fully sponsored ticket by Chini Africa to participate in the 2023 Roger Hatchuel Student Academy (RHSA) during the Cannes Lions Festival.

    Eze clinched the ticket by winning a video contest in the 2023 Future Creative Leaders Academy (FCLA), a youth platform of the Pitcher Festival of Creativity organised by Chini Africa.

    FCLA is an initiative of the Pitcher Festival of Creativity designed for students in universities and other tertiary institutions in Nigeria. It provides a platform for inspiring and immersing hopeful professionals into the world of advertising and other creative, marketing communications.

    Every year, it runs a competition for about 30-40 students from different institutions. The overall winner represents Nigeria in the RHSA at the Cannes Lions festival in France.

    Talking to Prime Business Africa (PBA), Chinalurumogu says she excited to have won the 2023 Prize. “This is a huge opportunity for me. We’re talking about going to France! I’m very excited about it. This is a plus to my career and a plus to my networking skills,” she stated happily.

    “I will be representing Nigeria there, I will be attending Cannes Lions Festival, one of the biggest festivals in the world,” she adds.
