Immigrant of the Day: Yvonne Orji

Tomorrow night is the premiere of Yvonne Orji's new HBO comedy special: Momma, I Made It!

Orji is a comedian and actress, known for her role on HBO's hit show Insecure. She was born in Nigeria, grew up in Maryland, and, fascinatingly, got her Masters in Public Health from GW before pursuing her career in Hollywood.

As I said, you can catch her new show on HBO tomorrow. And you can read this NYT article to learn more about her life. Or consider a pre-order of her autobiography, Bamboozled by Jesus: How God Tricked Me into the Life of My Dreams, coming February 2021.
