NIGERIAN NAME: UCHECHUKWU
I wasted a good majority of life shaming and disassociating myself from something that is and will always be a part of me -- my Nigerian (middle name) Uchechukwu (oo-chay-chew-kwoo). No knocks or clicks necessary; as I would need to remind the ignorant few. Lol. But why spend your life running from something that will follow you regardless? It was like a never ending battle trying to hide from my shadow. Foolish, right? Sad it took me this long to finally acknowledge my stupidity. Eh, better late than never. As my name does mean "the will of God" it's time to start living by it completely. I am ready to change for the greater good, join me?
P.S. Yes, I have changed my facebook name to Uchechukwu, so if you have pondered who the random stranger was showing up on your timeline, no need to be frightened, just lil o' me, hehe :)
