In a bid to do this, the Office of Miss Insurance 2014/2015 has officially kicked off her “Teens For Insurance” pet project, with the announcement of its online essay competition, titled: The Significant role of Insurance to the development of an Economy.
The “Teens For Insurance”, project was developed to sensitize the younger generation on the needs and benefits of Insurance, with the aim of preparing them for the imminent eventualities of life.
Speaking on the motive behind this laudable initiative, the reigning queen, Miss Funmilola Ogunshola, who holds a Bsc. Mass Communication from Igbinedion University and Msc. Fashion Management from Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland, said the project was born out of a desire to initiate early knowledge and experience on the practice and benefits of insurance to youths in Nigeria.
“I have noticed that majority of the insurance players in the industry are only focusing on the older generation, but the truth is we need to start creating more polices that focus on the younger generation, so as to catch them young and carry them along in the insurance awareness campaign. That exactly is what this project is centered upon”, she said.
