I reside in Chicago with my husband, Ndubuisi, and three children. Twelve years ago I came to the United States from Nigeria, and was in the same boat as many of you reading this book. I was excited at the opportunity to go to the United States. I didnt know much about the United States other than anecdotes I had heard. I earned my Masters in Public Administration here, and will be graduating with my doctorate degree in Organizational Psychology in September. I have worked in the United States in the educational sector, public sector and the nonprofit sector. I have mentored a number of international students. Based on my experience, I have written this book to help make navigating your life in the United States easier. This item ships from multiple locations.
