Welcome to My ‘Home’ Country, Nigeria🇳🇬

Nigeria reminds me of that classmate we all knew back in secondary school; the one who was simply naturally enviably clever.

New Year, New Who? 

"Hey sis, how do I become like these women?" I swift my gaze from my phone to hers, and analyse the pictures being displayed: Successful women.
