A young Nigerian lady identified as Vkay Robert has celebrated moving to the United States 13 years after she couldn’t fly out despite winning the American visa lottery.
In a lengthy Facebook post on Wednesday, June 15, Vkay recalled how she missed out on going to the US more than a decade ago.
Someone denied her access to an important document
Vkay said she won the American visa lottery in 2007 but missed her interview date because someone in the family with whom she put up with denied her access to a document that had this information.
Painfully, she found out in September 2008 that her interview date should have been April 15th, 2008.
“In 2007, I won the American Visa lottery but i missed my interview date because I didn’t receive the documents that stated it. Actually someone received it in the family I lived with at the time, whose address I had used for the application but they denied me access to it. Like, I had no knowledge the documents were received.
“I found out in September of 2008 that my interview date should have been April 15th of same year. I found out by coincidence but by then it was too late,” she narrated.
Vkay made a fruitless scene at the American embassy
Tearfully, Vkay had gone to the American embassy in Lagos to narrate what actually happened but her pleas fell on deaf ears. The embassy personnel she lamented to instead called the security on her.
The embassy personnel she lamented to instead called the security on her.
“He looked at me like I was insane and called for security through the public address system, in his exact words, security, please come and take this mad girl away from here. “When I saw two security men coming, I just laid on the floor wailing and refusing to leave. Yes I embarrassed myself that day.”
All that is however in the past now as she is now in the US.
She showed off pictures taken abroad but was mum on how she made it to the US.
