In her words…..

“She’s Nigerian but Nigeria deeply frustrates her. She came to the immediate realization that she doesn’t have to be a dutiful daughter or citizen despite wanting to share in the average experience of an average Nigerian. She made the choice of not being a US citizen which she deeply regrets.”
