Going to America: A struggle of an ex-Biafran soldier to attain his American dream, is a true story of the author’s struggles to achieve his passionate desire for obtaining higher education in the United States. The struggles started in Nigeria right after the Nigeria/Biafra war in 1970. The situation then made it extremely difficult for a young Igbo man to get a Nigerian passport and a United States students’ visa. This personal story reflects the lack of sincerity on the part of the people who ran the Nigerian Federal government at that time.
This story also reveals the difference between the expectations of the young African student as he struggled to come to the United States and the realities he experienced on arrival in the United States of America. He lacked the money to pay for an Ivy-league education but he had tremendous faith and determination to succeed. At the end he succeeded.
