“I love that UIU Dallas always has amazing events & seminars for young, black professionals. I joined UIU to discover and learn more about the Igbo culture and as a wife, I thought it would be important to educate myself especially because, one day we plan to have children and I want to ensure that they know where they come from & who they are!
