  1. This video almost made me cry! And it pains me to think the Western world view we Africans as barbarica and uncivilized when in reality we have entreprenuers and successful people from all backgrounds and all countries in our continent. Thank you for sharing this so much! It reinforced my desire to go back to Nigeria and help my people after I am finished with college. :D
