The Inspire Series: Webisode 1- Growing Up different in Nigeria

Identity. It’s a difficult thing. Some are lucky, they are able to shape, nurture and develop theirs, with limited interruptions from others. Not everyone is that fortunate. My first guest on the show, Ms Yvonne Edozien, is an albino. There’s no hiding it. Once you sees her, you immediately attach whatever connotation that title brings. it’s difficult enough growing up in today’s world trying to identify who you are, without the added struggle of the world telling you what you are. How do you grow up, knowing immediately that you are different from everyone else? What are the challenges? What support system do you require? How do you develop your sense of self without being limited by negative perceptions? Yvonne and I discuss this in the first one on one webisode of the INSPIRE SERIESBYGLORYEDOZIEN- Growing up different in Nigeria…. #pray #love #live. #Beinspired
