16-year-old wins teen essay contest

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

The essay competition themed “The Beauty of the Presbyterian Liturgy” was organized for teenagers aged 13-19 years in all the parishes of the Church in the country.

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

She said, “The theme has to do with the uniqueness of the method of worship, which sets it apart from any other method of worship by other churches.”

Nmesomachi, who said it was her first time entering an essay competition, noted that it motivated her to come out on top.

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

She added: “It wasn’t easy when I was writing this essay. At one point I got frustrated. I just felt like I wouldn’t be able to get the first position so there’s no point in writing this. I just have to drop my pen, because at the time I was still writing my exams. So I actually struggled, read for my exams and wrote an essay to get to the first position.

“I am very happy and grateful to God, my parents, and the Church in general for giving me this opportunity to showcase my talent and do what I love most.

“For those who wrote this essay contest with me and couldn’t make it, I’ll tell them to keep striving. They can’t give up anything at all. They should also make hard work and God their priority.”
