I lived in Nigeria for over 17 years before i moved to Canada. I moved here to get a better education which I am ever grateful to my parents for this amazing experience. I was fresh out of high school when I moved here with no parental guidance. It was strange at first because all the times I had traveled abroad I was in the company of my mother. It dawned on me all of a sudden that i would have to start making my own decisions and standing up for myself.
