Indeed visiting Nigeria is an expensive challenge… and I am always up for a challenge. It is not a holiday… it is a trip that completes a part of me spiritually. I spent 4yrs of my secondary school life in this boarding school.
It has actually been 30yrs since I left this particular secondary school. More years since I left the school in the UK.
Federal Government Girls College Owerri (FGGCOw) has a reunion every other year. I have had the good fortune to attend every single one of the reunions todate, 5 so far and counting.
Many activity are lined up re the reunion weekend away. We have an AGM, inter-house sports, gala night, market place, cultural night with many competitions and finally a mass held in church on Sunday. There is always loads of food, drinks and transport to and from event venue. Most importantly I get to reconnect with friends from my youth… be it all legs, bums and tums🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.
This year again I was nominated and re-elected as the VP diaspora UK. I totally enjoy being one of the ambassadors for my alumni. What else can I do to give back to the school that helped in nurturing me into the person that I am today.
