Looking back, Mr Nwarulor wrote:

"6 years ago I made one of the toughest and most uncertain decisions of my life. I relocated to Canada from Nigeria. I was few months from turning 29, about to miss my first flight to Canada. This would be my first time on an airplane. Yes, you heard that right, the first time on a plane. You can imagine the tension of being on the plane for the first time and you are going to be on the plane for almost a day.
"I had just resigned from a job I enjoyed. I dropped out of a Masters program. I put a pause on the brand I was building. With 3 bags and a dream. I made a decision to move. I remember the uncertainty in my Dad's face when we drove to the airport that day. I remember a colleague telling me that I had lost my fire. As I reflect today, I am grateful to God."
