Yvonne Anuli Orji is one of many African Americans who never discards the fabric clothing her ancestors wore or attempted to control. She connects with her native countrymen in the same way she interacts with those from other countries.
Actress and comedian Yvonne Orji is of Nigerian and American descent. Known for her work on the TV show Insecure (2016–present), for which she has received nominations for three NAACP Image Awards and a Primetime Emmy Award in 2020.
Before her family moved to the US, Yvonne’s story began in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. She graduated from George Washington University, where she majored in liberal arts before earning a master’s in public health.
In 2021, Orji started working on the First Gen television series for Disney+. Oprah Winfrey and David Oyelowo are the show’s producers, and it is based on her life.
Yvonne exudes native cultural personae at all times and is the picture of beauty. There is no better way to express our joy at seeing one of our own prospering greatly outside of its neighborhood and kinship.
