I was raised in the U.S and the U.K but always yearned for the opportunity to work, serve and make a difference in the developing world. I finally resigned my job as a project manager for a large Pharmaceutical company in the U.S to live and serve in a land largely unknown to me, my country of origin-Nigeria. Its been an amazing journey since I moved back two years ago. I've gone from being hopeful for my country and being hopeless sometimes in the face of corruption and mass poverty, grappling with this very rich but poor country.
