Change Your Perspective

Someone once said “geography is destiny”. And I think that to be true to some extent (not ignoring other factors that come to play in shaping destinies). Where we’re from, our parents etc. all help in pointing us to what we’d become. I’m proud to be a Nigerian. Even though currently, the national image keeps plummeting faster than I can blink.
