16-year-old wins teens essay competition

- August 28, 2022

A 16-year-old, Ezera Nmesomachi, has emerged the overall winner of the 2022 Teens Essay Competition organised by the National Children and Teens Desk of the Presbyterian Church Of Nigeria.

The essay competition with the theme, ‘The Beauty Of The Presbyterian Liturgy’, was organized for teenagers between the ages of 13 – 19 years in all the parishes of the church within the country.

Nmesomachi is a native of Ebem Ohafia, Ohafia LGA and an ex-student of Intellectual Giant Christian Academy Umuahia and recently sat for the 2022 West African Senior School Examination.

She said, “The theme has to do with the uniqueness of the method of worship, making one stand apart from every other method of worship by other churches.”

Nmesomachi, who said it was the first time to sit for an essay competition, noted that coming out with first position motivated her.

Hard work, she said inspired her to write the essay.

She added, “Actually when I was writing this essay it wasn’t easy. At some point, I became frustrated. I just felt like I won’t be able to get the first position, So, it’s of no use writing this. I just need to drop my pen because as at that time, I was still writing my exams. So, I was actually struggling, reading for my exams and writing essay to emerge the first position.

“I feel very happy and grateful to God, to my parents and to the church at large for giving me this opportunity to showcase my talent and do what I love most.

“For those that wrote this essay competition with me and couldn’t make it, I will actually tell them to keep striving. They should not give up on anything at all. They should also make hard work and God their priority.”
