Her childhood dream was to become an aviator, thereby following in the foorsteps of her father who worked in the Aviation sector for almost 3 decades. From age 10, Blessing regularly visited the international airport where het father worked and so got exposed to the world of aircraft and ground/flight operations.[1]

After she relocated to the Netherlands, her childhood obsession for airplanes transitioned to fascination and she desperately desired to become a pilot. After many years of pre-education and certification, she embarked on taking flight classes.[2] Unfortunatley, due to a number of legal restrictions, she was compelled to make the switch to Aeronautical Engineering.

Her tutees were 1st year Aviation students that she assisted with additional lectures and examination training. Before Blessing graduated from college, she did her internships at some of the country's landmark organisations such as the Dutch Aerospace Laboratory (NLR), as well as at Fokker Aerostructures.

For her Honours programme, Blessing partnered with Swiss AviationSoftware, a Switzerland-based company. There, she joined forces with a co-student to develope a concept Graphic User Interface for the company's AMOS system called "Portable Aid For Maintenance Engineers in Line Operations".

Blessing currently works as a Maintenance Engineer at Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam.

In 2013, Blessing won the "Christian Woman In Media Award". In 2014, she was nominated in two categories at the African Diaspora Merit awards and in 2023, she made the list of 100 Inspiring Africans In The Netherlands.

With all the experience she gathered in the modelling and beauty pageant arena, Blessing went on to becoming the National Director of The Miss Globe Netherlands, The Miss Globe Cabo Verde and The Miss Globe Cameroon beauty pageants from the year 2015 till the year 2021. These pageants were held in Canada and Albania. In her role as National Director, Blessing succeeded in placing these three countries on the world map.

Blessing was contracted by the organizers of Africa Fashion Week Amsterdam. She was appointed as their official Events Coordinator from 2014 to 2017.
