“I paid the price of [not] having a connection with my children. Coming to Nigeria, I would stay in my room sometimes and cry, like, ‘oh my gosh, what am I doing?’ I left them. My daughter was 13 and my son was 11.

“Now mind you, I was a hands-on mother: come home, take a nap, set the table, all of that. And I mean, quit my job just to raise my children. That’s why I only had two. So when they grew up to a certain extent, I went back to work.

“I found my calling; paid the price of divorce five years ago. He was a good man but I got to a place where I wanted more. I had to make that choice to focus on what I wanted. I’ve worked too hard and I’m sacrificing nothing.”
