I enjoyed meeting Dr. Heyward-Rotimi. She is intelligent and sees certain things just as I do.
She talked to us about living in Nigeria. She was very honest about her experiences there. She related to us, that as an African-American she was made to feel out of place by Africans. She talked to us about how some Nigerians don’t believe that American born black communities have culture.
What stood out to me most about our conversation was when I mentioned to her that I want to leave my mark on this world. She told me that I should set my sights on whatever I want to do because if I believe in myself and have a strategy to achieve my goals, then I will.
I will never forget meeting Dr. Kamela Heyward-Rotimi.
