Hello everyone, my name is…

Hello everyone, my name is Chibuzor Ogbonna, sometimes very hard to pronounce for some people. The gag is it is pronounced just as it spelled. I am a female, from Nigeria but I moved here a couple years ago. This is my last semester, I should be getting an associates degree in international relations and I am very excited about that. I intend to continue at MSU or transfer to University of North Texas for a bachelors degree. I value the importance of education in our society today and I am very driven to go as high as I can. My long term goal is to be a diplomat/ambassador of my country to other foreign nations or work with foreign organization, embassies, security and the government because people do not know a lot about Nigeria or even Africa in general and the are quick to draw erroneous conclusions, it would be pretty cool to correct those misconceptions.
I was required to take this class to complete my degree. I had professor James give a lecture in one of my classes last semester and I must say, I am glad I did because I was very interested in his technique of teaching and he gave an insight as to what his online class was like. I am also interested in learning and comparing the economic systems of other countries and why they are so different or in some cases so similar.
I hope we all enjoy this class. Have an amazing semester!
