Master of Arts in Professional Writing (MAPW)
To me, a sojourner is a person who leaves his or her homeland in search of something only to return after a temporary period of staying in a foreign land. The search for something better led me to the United Kingdom, and shortly after, the USA. Initially, the reason for my travel was to find better opportunities. I have since discovered that my success and progress in life depend on my willingness to harness my greatness. During the process of writing this book, I discovered myself. I left Nigeria in my late teens, and I have been abroad ever since. I'm in my late twenties now, and my world view has changed. I discovered that no one was coming to save me or any of my fellow sojourners living in the diaspora. I have to be bold enough to speak out for myself and others who cannot or choose not to. The sojourner attempts to answer questions I found myself asking while living in Atlanta on borrowed time.
