    I know Yale got the brand and all, being such an old uni, but so often I have this conviction that Naija has way more value than we give ourselves credit for. Like when Biola goes all the way to Connecticut to “participate in leadership and media training” I think who’s training who (abi na whom?) She’d better believe that she’s got all the leadership and media stuff anyone could want anywhere in the world and just use this “training” as an opportunity to play, chill, etc. Who knows, maybe something will come of being in a different environment, maybe a nice meeting/network. If Yale has any sense, they’ll ask her to train.

    Sorry, just being honest. The world has this whole status thing upside-down.
