Chinua Owoh, 29 – Nigeria

“My home is in Britain, but my heart is in Nigeria.

I think most of us have a lasting connection with the place we grew up in. Making those first important friends. Going through the ups and downs of school. Playing football – every spare moment. Picking fruit to eat on the way home. And looking forward to Mum’s Sunday rice. Those are the things that stay with me – even today as I research for my doctorate in Britain.

I live thousands of miles away, but I’m still very involved in Nigeria. I send as much as I can afford back to charities there. My best friend there, Josephine, helps me disburse the money, and manage my NGO. In return, I send her supplies for her clothing store. We support each other.”
