Today is #WorldWaterDay and I want @GovSamuelOrtom @GovernorObaseki @RotimiAkeredolu @kfayemi @Lugardhouse to share their plans with @glblctzn, Nigeria & the world for clean water & sanitation in their state. The need is real. The time is now. We can do this. We must do this. #ACTIVATE

The first time I came home to Nigeria, I was 8 years old. I was with my family & remember being so excited for everything- visiting my parents’ homes, seeing relations I’d either never met or hadn’t seen in years, standing on the land where I am from. After a brief stop in the city, we’d head to our ancestral home in the village. Village life is a slice unlike anything that could ever be found elsewhere. There’s laughter, love, a slowing down of life, community, family & a genuine appreciation for every blessing that has been favored over your life. I love the village. But, with it comes inequities that, at times, cannot be described or explained. From my first trip, I couldn’t understand the lack surrounding so many basic human needs. Chief among them was the lack of clean, drinkable & useable water. If my family & I wanted to bathe or cook, we’d use the water we had collected from the rains. If we wanted water to drink or brush our teeth, it had to come from the bottled water we’d brought with us, and if it ran out...well, it ran out & we drank the rain water. It didn’t make sense to me at 8 or as I grew and would return home. It makes even less sense to me now. 69 million Nigerians live without clean, drinkable or useable water. I know it’s not the entire country living like this. I know as a nation we’ve seen tremendous growth that makes us all proud. But, we still have far too many in this country only surviving, not thriving. Far too many parents losing their children to water born infectious & diarrheal diseases that could be set in our nation’s past. The time is now. Through a joint effort of EVERY community taking up behavioral changes, like hand washing & stopping open defecation; paired with unwavering & committed support from passionate state leaders, like @edu_betta of Cross River, working to bring Nigeria & her youth to her fullest and brightest potential, we can DO this. I came to Nigeria with @glblctzn & @nationalgeo new docuseries #ACTIVATE with a single focus in mind: our nation’s children. They are our future, our citizens. They stand where I once stood. The future is what they will inherit. Let’s make it a future worth more than gold.

Excited to be here with @glblctzn and #NATGeo to get to work fixing our much needed clean water and sanitation issues. Awareness without action is over. The time is now to do. Nigeria, together we can DO this. Let’s go. WELCOME TO MY COUNTRY!!!! #ACTIVATE

As a proud Nigerian, I am committed to supporting equality, peace, and prosperity across the entire country. But, the water & sanitation crisis in has already effected so many through the spread of fatal illnesses, but is specifically holding back so many of our bright young girls from school. For me, this is personal. This #InternationalWomensDay is for them. Because their fight is now our fight. Let’s go change this. #internationalwomensday #worldwaterday #iwd2019 #whorunstheworld #ACTIVATENatGeo

Spent last night with my friend and sister, @amberrosetamblyn talking about her new book, #EraOfIgnition. It’s a pretty dope read, I think. Amber, you step out and share the hard things on this one and that’s a very brave thing, my friend. Very brave. And what makes me love you so. Check it out. It’s on sale now! #EraOfIgnition

The time is now. Let’s make room for voices yet to be heard, for stories yet to be told.

@oitnb changed my life and the lives of so many people who worked on and watched our show. It gave us the space to just be ourselves. Thank you @ijnej for letting us play; thank you @netflix for giving us the platform. Thank you to everyone involved- from foreground to background actor, writers, directors, casting, producers and our illustrious crew- for making this entire project possible. I pray good things, only good, GOOD things come onto each of us. That’s a wrap on this chapter. Love you guys.

On this day at 658p, I was given the gift of coming into the world(thanks, Mum). I’m thankful to be here. Thankful for my amazing friends and incredible family. I’m still doing all the things I love, still experiencing so many of the things I had only dreamt of one day seeing. Guys, I’m 38 years old. I love it. I come from a culture and a place where the celebration of life lived is the gold standard. A place where you long to one day be old enough to not have to stand or sit on the floor when there are more bodies of elders than there are seats, but get to sit in a chair; as to let your wisdom rest. I can’t wait to one day sit. To one day be at the top of the hill and stand among the elders, or to receive the titles handed up to you by the youth of “Aunty” or “Mama.” This life is just getting started. Just beginning and I’m excited for all that is to come on this good road. Uzoamaka, jisike, nne. Let’s go, 38. I hear you’re a good one.

You’re my sister, @ceou117, but you also are my friend and counsel, my support; you’ve been my babysitter, a supporting mom and a big sister my whole life. You’ve shown up for every single one of us every single time you have been called, and that is why I say I don’t know a better person. I love you, Onyi and I’m wishing you a very Happy Birthday. Here’s to more smiles and ruffle dresses. #tbt #bestfriends #sisters

Last night with this lady. I had the best time presenting @iamreginaking with her Best Supporting Actress Award for her beautiful work in @bealestreet. A force, a voice, and a talent whose wings reach as wide as the sun. She is a real one, a light, and one of the most beautiful hearts I have come to know since beginning the journey. Massive congrats, @iamreginaking on this well deserved @nbrfilm award. What a great week you’ve had . Love and more love. #SalveRegina

One of my favorite times of the year. Giving Tuesday. We can all make a difference in a life. My trips to Uganda with Heifer International continually reflect that truth back to me. Together, on this #GivingTuesday, we can help @heiferinternational end hunger and poverty. Give a cow, goat, or other animal and provide a family with a better future. Join me and go to heifer.org to #GiveHeifer today! Also, I cannot with this baby goat. #abovetheline

Ms. Tyson. She’s not a star. That’s too limiting to what she has gifted us. No, Ms. Tyson is an entire galaxy upon herself, a living breathing legend. She is a woman who has delivered her talent to us all, time and time again, for the better part of some 60+ years. An artist who, at 88 years young, gave us a Tony-winning performance filled with such a bounty of energy I had to see the show twice to be sure I hadn’t imagined it. And now this. Ms. Tyson. A true artist and crafts woman. We are just so lucky to have you. Esteemed congratulations. #governorsawards
