It irked me whenever I watched the news, commercials or saw ads online concerning countries in Africa, they portrayed poverty, struggle and suffering. Yes, I believe that we are lacking in some parts, but at the same time, we have lots of beautiful and modern places and cities. Which is why we as individuals need to change this backwards narrative!
I'm proud of my heritage because It is part of who I am and part of what helped me become the person I am today, "A proud Nigerian! ".
Biggest misconception people have Africa, as a continent is a country! That we as Africans, as diverse as we are, are all the same with a generic accent and attire.
Why do you think Diversity matters?Diversity matters because its the spice of life, it is part of what makes us as humans somewhat unique in our own little niches.
