Photographs Not Taken

Photographs Not Taken

Today is World Sickle Cell Day as such, I thought I would share this video project I created about my experience with photography, sickle cell and how the two are intertwined for me personally. The project was recorded in 2013 on a Nikon D7000 as an assignment for my Advance Photo Techniques Class.  
The Plight of the Immigrant-American

The Plight of the Immigrant-American

Too American for Nigeria, Too Nigerian for America, written Fall 2015 It wasn’t until my recent trip to Nigerian that I realized just how American I am. Up until studying abroad in spring 2014, I solely identified as Nigerian, a delusion that is mostly due to the way I was raised. As a first generation American, ... Read More

Study Abroad Take Aways

Study Abroad Take Aways

“What study abroad has taught me” these are pretty chopping thoughts because I jotted them down as I learned them. I left them this way because they are better left ‘raw’.

One Month Later…

One Month Later…

Today marks one month since I landed back in the United States and I still can’t believe I really spent five months in France.
