For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Dammy Ogunseitan and I am proud to be Nigerian.
I am sure that by now, most of you have heard about the #bringbackourgirls campaign. Three weeks after over 200 girls were kidnapped from their school in Nigeria, a fortnight after #bringbackourgirls first started making the rounds on social media, and a day after Michelle Obama described the hurt 200 plus mothers are feeling this mothers day weekend, I joined my fellow (Canadian) Nigerians, strangers, and #Vancouverites at Robson Square to draw attention to Chibok, and to show that terrorism will never hold the free world hostage.

As a Nigerian, I am proud that a lot of people are keeping Chibok in their thoughts, and are trying to do everything to bring the girls back home. All we can say is Thank You. Check out a few pictures from todays event at Robson Square. #BRINGBACKOURGIRLS
