I live in Nigeria

I live in Nigeria, a country where people tend to judge an individual more by appearance and material possessions than by the values inherent in them. Once, I was guilty of such as well, but I have learnt to that there truly is more to an individual than meets the eye.

I would rather be friends with a person that has good values than with one that is good looking but lacks basic values, ‘cos bad company corrupts good character.

I have had the privilege of spending time with some persons living with albinism, and I can honestly say that there is more to them than their lack of melanin, which is of course the first and only thing that most people notice.
