My faith is something that has always given me hope in difficult situations. This is not faith, the way the world likes to throw the term around, but faith in the only true living God. So while it was horrible seeing my mother go through all the things she did, I had this inner knowing, full of confidence that all was going to be fine, regardless of the outcome. When we made our way to the hospital that day, she was already go...

I picked up the phone one day, while I was at my friend’s apartment, and it happened to be my dad on the other end of the call. “Mommy is coming to America in a few weeks,” he said to me. “Why? Is everything okay?”

“Okay madam, your results are in,” the doctor said to my mother after a series of tests. “We are sorry you have stage 4 breast cancer.” The revelation from the doctor hit my mom like a ton of bricks. “How could this be? Cancer? Are you sure, doctor?”  “Yes I am, the doctor said back to her, you are welcome to seek another opinion.” My mom was a fighter; she was so strong that we, the children did not even know she was already...

Before settling for school in Louisiana, I wanted to school in the U.K, but all the schools I applied to rejected me. So I turned my focus to the U.S and Canada and got admitted to two schools each in both countries. My dad then advised me to go with Lafayette, because it was a small town, and he wanted me to concentrate on school. The day after I arrived in Lafayette, I met some more Nigerians. People that I have now been fri...

We were airborne from Frankfurt to Seoul for about 12 hours, but it felt we were flying for days. I kept sleeping and waking up to darkness and brightness out of my window. I had lost all track of time. By the time we landed in Seoul, we found ourselves in a whole new world; something completely different from Port-Harcourt, where I grew up in.

I ran into my father’s room early in the morning, I could barely get any sleep the night before, as the phone kept ringing non-stop. “Daddy where are you off to?” I asked, he was acting a bit confused, making his bed, putting on his shirt, and going back to make an already made bed. “We are heading to the hospital” He replied. Breathing heavily; my heartbeat became faster than usual, feeling like I was going to have a panic at...

It hurt so badly! There were days when I would sit down, and tears would make their way through my tear ducts without me making a conscious effort to cry. I couldn't believe that this happened to me, me of all people? How now? This kind of thing only happened in the movies or on Linda Ikeji blog! Not Evi’s life? No never! This has to be a dream. She never for once said she was sorry; she called me a fool for wanting to bel...

No wonder she didn’t want Fisayo to drive me to Houston, no wonder she didn’t want Fisayo to come help me out with my flat tire, and insisted that she would get someone else to come switch it out for me. No wonder she didn’t make it to the wedding, because she could not bear to see I and Fisayo together. No wonder she wasn’t her jovial self at the get together I had at my house one time, when me and Fisayo where dancing to our...

A friend of mine was getting married, and I convinced Fisayo to be my date for the wedding. I am no longer shy to admit that I am a hopeless romantic, so a wedding is my favorite go-to for fun. My brother always teases me, saying that going to weddings for me, is the equivalent of going to the club for others. So yea you get the gist, I love weddings. I stylishly picked out Fisayo’s outfit, because he wasn't someone who wa...

I never thought I would find myself in that situation; sexually transmitted disease, was something I learned about in biology class or watched in movies or read about on blogs. I never thought that I would one day worry if I was clean or not. Dating Fisayo came with a lot of mess.
