I am Oluranti Efunwoye, call me Olu!
Over a decade ago I migrated to the United States in an awestricken manner and an incredible odd in my favor. I won the United States green card lottery. This a program is runned by United States Department of States to give foreigners opportunity to live and work permanently in the United States. It was a huge odd in my favor because although the green card program that year last for 60days, I applied barely 15mins to the end of the program. Out of over 9million applicants, I was among the 100,000 chosen and then went through further scrunity to be part of the 50,000 chosen. Great odd uh?
Why is this story pertinent for me? Because I was once heading nowhere in my education and career path before I was given opportunity. I would have amounted to nothing if not for many timely interventions to rescue me from a slippery wasting destiny.
This is my story! You are welcome to read the entire story, fundraising campaign and find out how you can help support my cause to give back to my community in Nigeria.
