    I want to apply but looking at it, you must have high social media followers to be able to win it. I feel so sad because I know I can’t possibly garner likes enough to win it. Life is just so complicated, you get an opportunity to better yourself and something as little as this comes in the way.
    I need to do something with my life as I just don’t know the way forward anymore. I’m just broken inside. I have an interest in photography but I don’t know where to learn, neither do I have money to get a camera. Anybody who can help out should please help me as you would be helping a broken spirit. Thanks

      Wow. This is a pity. How much do the courses at LBS normally cost?

      I think it’s weird that they’re making this a social media competition instead of an essay or interview.

      It is more sad that you are giving up before even trying, please pick yourself up and try, at least that way you will know you stood a chance. Give it all you’ve got. Get your friends to get their friends to like your video.

      Now about photography, have you thought about contacting a photographer? and don’t say no one will be open to a proposal without first trying to meet at least 50 photographers. Life is about persistence and giving it your all.

      You have a mobile phone, you have internet access, you are in a far better position than millions of people who do not (and some of these people are quite successful in some way).

      So final words, stop the pity party, get on your feet and go make your dreams come true because you are the only one who can stand in your own way!

    Why is the criterion based on social media likes for a platform that’s educational.

    So sad

    Another popularity contest *sigh* Some ppl are not as avid sharers as others, some like privacy, and gathering followers to like a post over such short notice cud tempt one to do so fraudulently(if thats a word). And after committing fraud, there’s no guarantee u wud even get it. So ur conscience wud just prick u for no reason.

    I know a bunch of smart friends who could qualify for this but the process is rigorous. A Lot of them have no presence on social media, just like african bad girl said this is a popularity contest. What is wrong with lbs choosing winners themselves, or getting them to write an essay or make videos and send to the school, the criteria to qualify is crazy. Twitter, facebook, instagram, linkedin, 1 billion likes + a video that puts you out there and plenty hashtaging Na Wa ooo.
