Our Story

I said good morning on a hot afternoon in the interview room.

I was nervous and couldn’t control myself. I had low self esteem! I had zero confidence!

Hi, my name is Mmesoma Ilechukwu and I’m going to share with you my story of how I moved from being timid, shy, afraid and insecure to becoming the highly confident person that I am today.

Few years ago when I was a secondary school student in SS2, my classmates, and some of my teachers and seniors nominated me for the position of Senior Prefect in my School.

I had the capacity to do the job. I was a very bright (and beautiful 😀) student and I was among the best 3 Art students of my set.

The people that chose me saw all these “potentials” in me. But, guess what happened? I got into the interview room and greeted “Good morning” on a hot afternoon because I was nervous and I lacked the one important ingredient of public speaking, confidence.

And those eyes of the Interview panel?

God! I wanted to run away. I prayed for the earth to open and swallow me.

I could hear my heart beat so loudly I thought it would tear my chest open.

Despite being intelligent and having all these “potentials”, I could not prove myself.
I could not deliver.
I disappointed my classmates and all the people that nominated me.

That night in the hostel, I sobbed my way to sleep. I soaked my pillow with hot tears.

For the next few days, I refused to talk to anyone. Refused to engage in conversations with my friends like I used to.

My face was always swollen. I was battling depression.

During the interview, I was asked the position I wanted and I told them “Deputy Senior Prefect” although I knew fully well what I should go for!

I felt I wasn’t worthy to be the main.

Guess the post I was later given?

Assistant Sanitary Prefect!

It was heartbreaking!

I hated myself the more feeling that I had messed up.

However, I took the post and I did my work with so much zeal and energy.

I even worked more than my main because I was assisting.

So, what exactly happened?

What went wrong was that I could do the job but I had no confidence to communicate my capability to the Interview panel

Even after I left Secondary school, this low self esteem and zero confidence followed me into life

I lost many opportunities and useful relationships because of this one problem.

Opportunities and relationships that would have taken me far in my career by now.

But I lost them and more because of 0% confidence.

Your experience might not be exactly like mine. But you probably have lost so many important things and people because of lack of confidence.

Lack of confidence is the one reason many people do so much yet lack results that are complementary to the kind of energy and work that they put in.

I’ve been there. And it’s not an interesting way to live.

For instance, I used to struggle with charging what I knew my time and business was worth because I felt I wasn’t worthy of such “huge” amounts and rewards.

Again, I lost many valuable and useful relationships, entered into wrong ones, lost life changing opportunities.

I just settled for whatever came my way. I slaved my way through life.

I knew I was not an ordinary lady! However, I wasn’t confident enough to let the world see my awesomeness.

I was merely existing and not living life to the fullest until 2019 when my deliverance came.

I had attended a webinar on Confidence but in the days that followed, I took a lot of Personal Development courses including on Confidence, I did a lot of research to get hacks on how I could build and own a top-notch confidence.

I applied the lessons I learnt and the discoveries I made in my own life and I was literally blown away by the amazing results I got.
I got my confidence level high up, met a lot of wonderful people, formed valuable relationships, got paid what my time and business was worth.


Life became good again

I decided to share my wonderful and life changing discoveries and lessons with the rest of the world, as I am sure there are many people out there who are going through the same fate I passed through prior to 2019.

Being a victim of this problem sometime, I knew all it cost me and I wouldn’t want any other person to experience it. So I decided to help.

School Of Confidence is my best platform to share these hacks.

School Of Confidence has raised so many confident and successful people (otherwise known as lions and lionesses) around the world since its inception in September 2020.

God granted us a kind of supernatural speed that is beyond human intelligence and understanding.

School Of Confidence has helped once suicidal and depressed young people regain their confidence and go on to living the life of their dreams.

School Of Confidence has pushed a lot of society-made introverts out of their shells and into their God-ordained destinies.

I’m talking of people who weren’t naturally introverts but society turned them into introverts. And even the real introverts become Confident even with their nature made them shy, timid insecure, and unsure of who they were.

Most graduates of the School have taken bold steps to do the things they used to fear.

They’re living the life of their dreams now as a result of the one-on-one sessions they had with Coach Mmesoma, the Confidence Doctor.

Attached herein are some of the many transformational testimonials that we got from our students.

If you do not have a low confidence or self esteem issue, but you want more out of life, don’t worry, School Of Confidence has got you covered!

We’ve had confident people sign up for a one-on-one session with The Confidence Doctor and they were blown away by the results they got.

You’ll also see some of these confident people’s testimonials.

I look forward to seeing you in class.

School of Confidence.

"Being at the edge of giving up, hating myself, loving the thought of suicide, God led me here. Being here taught me a lot of things. One particular thing I'll never forget in my lifetime is that, God hates it when I talk negatively about myself.

The school of confidence has stretched me, it pushed me out of my shell and I don't want to ever go back. Now that I'm out, I realize how much I've hurt myself. I realize how much time has been wasted. I realize how much opportunity has been lost. I realize how much I hate that place. So many things have changed in the way I view myself and situations and I'm so grateful for the time and encouragement from my coach, the Confidence Doctor.

Thank you, ma’am,"

"School of Confidence woke up the sleeping lion in me. Because I used to be a very bold & audacious little girl while growing up but I don’t know what happened. Thank you Coach for resurrecting it and never to die again. It pays to invest in yourself especially in areas of your weaknesses. And I'm glad I registered for School of Confidence because it re--awakened my sleeping boldness.

The courses & projects are top notch & so professional like my Coach herself. Coachie is just so phenomenal in every way, she knows her onions so well. All I learnt far outweighed the registration fees. And that's one of the best secrets of copywriting _" perceived value must always be greater than the cost price "

I started the year 2021 with great intentions. Unlike all the past years, I wrote down all that I hope to achieve this year. This of course was my first time of really writing things down at the start of a new year.

Getting registered in the School of Confidence was also on my personal development list. My mind was really made up about it not because I lacked confidence but because I understand the Value I stand to get in this school. When I talked to my husband about it, he didn't really understand. He said I was already a confident person but when I explained to him all what it is about, he wasted no time at all and I got registered.

It's been an amazing journey and there's one thing I can say "I paid less". The value I've gotten so far is much more than the money I paid. Believe me, in School of Confidence, every part of your life is touched. The way coach Mmesoma Ilechukwu takes it so personal gets me emotional.

She puts her time and everything just to make sure that you get nothing but value. The way she hypes you makes you want to face your fears that very minute. My mindset has really been changed. The interesting part is that the things being taught are things that are practicable.

I'd like to say thank you to SOC for the much value and impact.

"I'm exceptionally endowed with potentials but was under the siege of fear. I may know the solution to a very critical condition but the phobia of Inferiority complex will always not allow me to voice out. Though by mere looking at me, people that deal with me always confess about my uniqueness but self-pity could not allow me to show forth my light. At a time, I realize that I have gone too far to give up and there's no need of limiting myself anymore, I then re-strategized and enrolled for Vita-W Academy, a writing school and I was marveled during the session for confidence.

It seems as if the guest in the person of coachie read my mind. The session was really made for me. I later registered for One-on-one Coaching at School Of Confidence, that's where I witness the whole Rhema. School Of Confidence is really top notch, it woke up the sleeping giant in me. The knowledge perceived really outweighed the cost price. I highly recommend School of Confidence to anyone."

"Miss Mmesoma Ilechukwu, the Confidence Doctor is a God sent to me, and to the precious others who have passed through the School Of Confidence. I bless the day I registered for this class. The class addressed issues I did not even know I had.

The School of Confidence is not just a place to develop and build confidence. It is a place for addressing your self esteem and self worth, placing the right value on yourself. It is a moulding ground for serious minded people who are intentional about imparting and impacting their generation.

The highlight of the class for me was the bold way the confidence doctor made Jesus the centre of all her teachings. I can not talk about this enough. Confidence at its peak, I tell you. This confidence has become rooted in me. This is grateful me saying long live School of Confidence, long live the Confidence Doctor. This is just the beginning"

"Thank you very much for providing a great service to me in the SOC. You're a wonderful coach and i deeply value the time we've spent together and the progress you have helped me make in my life. Indeed, you reawakened my confidence and brought out the real me. Even when i was doing my project, i put everything you taught me into action and the video was a huge success. I got lots of congratulatory messages even till now and it makes me feel great. I wouldn't have gone this far if not for the courage and support you gave me even when i felt i couldn't continue. Once again, i remain ever grateful to you, coach".

School of Confidence is a school ordained by God.
Since I started the training, the way I see myself changed, the way I carry myself changed. I have really learnt that is the way I see myself that matters,not the way others view me. I have learnt never to give in to self defeat again.

One of the things that I learnt that I am really surprised is that my relationship with God is the first thing to focus on as a confident person.
I see my coach as a teacher that is ready to see that I grow, she tolerated no excuse at all, Miss Mmesoma, thanks for not giving up on me, if you have given up on me, I would not have graduated in this school.

I have learnt to write gratitude journal, in which when I go through it,it boosts my confidence.
It has been an awesome journey so far, it's a process, it's a journey, and it's a call to improve myself more, I continue to see that I grow.

The things learnt in the school has really helped me in communicating with people that have never met with before, and this has really go a long way.

I have noticed some improvements in me since I started this training.

One of the most exceptional thing learnt in this school is that, I am responsible for my life, I must take actions, I must not think of what others will say, while doing something, since I know that what I am doing is right.

It's a call to improvement,
No to excuses again.

My hunger and thirst for Confidence intensified after my experience at the "My Confidence Challenge". "MCC" literally opened me up to exuding confidence but "SOC" deepened it by making me exude lofty confidence. Registering for "SOC'S Basic course" is one of the best decisions I've made this year. I have no regrets at all. It was really an eye-opener. My eyes was opened to a whole lots of things I didn't know before. I was literally soaked in the pool of value😊.

Ranging from learning the differences between self-esteem, self worth, courage, confidence and self-confidence. How it is important to build a solid relationship with God. How putting myself out there irrespective of what people would say builds my confidence. How I should focus more on my strengths rather than my weaknesses. How being grateful can help to intensify my confidence. How it is pertinent to surround myself with good friends. How the meaning of my name can help build my confidence. How crafting affirmations goes a long way. How important it is to develop myself well, live purposefully and lots more. It was indeed a deluge of value.

And to our Phenomenal Coach♥️. It was a great and awesome privilege to learn from a Confidence guru and genius. She made me feel so important and worthy, this itself helped in skyrocketing my confidence. It was an honor to finally have a one-on-one session with her. She is truly an amazing personality with a large and sweet heart.

It was literally an amazing ride with an amazing coach. 🥰🥰

I saw SOC on facebook, read through, and thought this will be good for my son, but when I asked if there was adult session and the result was affirmative. I decided to give it a shot.

I always had this phobia of new places and faces , coupled with anxiety and shyness. I knew there was more in me but i needed that boost.

SOC came through for me, it didnt dissapoint. The coach, firm , friendly and dedicated to help you reach your goal. She had personal tips to help as an individual not a fire brigade , all size fits all approach.

I look forward to advancing further. I am putting my basic confidence to test by attending a personal development course which I have been postponing for two years now . Coach, wait for it. I will be making you proud!! Thanks Coach. You rock!!!

"Blessed be the day I enrolled in SOC. I cannot quantify the value and I got from SOC. It cuts across all areas of my life.

I'm graduating SOC a happier person with a healthier Self Esteem and a High Self Worth that I so much cherish, I manage my emotions well, I now close deals with my clients confidently and I don't settle for less. My relationship with God has improved greatly.

Graduating to SOC, people kept asking me what I'm doing here since I appeared a very bold person to them. Some friends asked if I'm registering because of the certification. Nevertheless, I did not relent. There was something I was searching for in me and I am glad I found it in SOC. In SOC, the difference is clear!".

“Before I enrolled in the school of confidence, I knew deep down within me that there was something I needed to correct as regards my confidence. I wasn’t shy but I wasn’t really confident either. I searched for a point of escape or self-denial and guess what? I found it, the perfect excuse, that I’m an introvert so it doesn’t matter, I’m always gonna be like this and it’s “okay” to be like this because of course that’s what introversion is all about right? I wore this veil for quite some years not until months back where I resolved to try again. I tried watching a lot of YouTube videos, reading some articles and books, following some platforms that talk about confidence on social media and that was how I met the School of Confidence page on Facebook.
I followed the posts of the director and within me I thought “wow!, this might actually be good” I kept following the posts until recently when I saw the post about enrollment into the school of confidence being open. Immediately I saw this, I didn’t hesitate and I asked for directions on how to apply. I was attended to by the director and when I was told the price, it sounded a bit heavy to me despite the stiff opposition from individuals close to me, I made sure I did everything humanly possible in order to enroll because I felt a deep conviction that this is what I’ve been searching for.

I finally got into the class and I was proved right. To cut the whole story short, believe me when I say that this class is one of the best things that has happened to me as regards my personal development. The price attached to it is really low for the value it’s being placed upon and I understand that she’s doing this to help people. Close to two weeks into this class I noticed tremendous improvement in my self and funny enough those parts or those things I knew that I needed to correct but I couldn’t recognize were taught and I was bemused and amused at the same time, honestly and I was like “is it this thing that has been holding me back? I was also taught how to correct them and believe you me, I can now stand on my feet and say I’m a confident individual. The lessons that are taught in this class can help you no matter who you are, provided you follow the instructions of the director, trust me. It’s with great joy that I write this and I enjoin anyone that’s suffering from low-self esteem or any of the indications of lack of confidence to join this class.
Honestly, It’s for your own good though.

Thank you Ma for this opportunity to help me become better and stronger and to move through life as the lion that I am. I’m really grateful. God bless you Ma.”
