Yvonne Orji moved to New York in 2009 to pursue comedy. A decision her Nigerian parents were not happy about.  “I’m Nigerian. We do engineering. We do medicine,” she revealed.

Before her 2009 move, the actress started doing comedy in 2006 after her brother asked  her to enter the Miss Nigeria in America pageant as a favor to a friend. When the organizers reached out saying that they also needed her talent, God asked her to do comedy.
