She told People, "I wasn't going to hide it just because I'm on TV. I’m open, because why not?". “I’m grounded in who I am.

The HBO star says she answered her own question, “It was like, OK, I know why I’m here. It’s to make you proud.”

Orji says she’s always more than willing to explain her decision to anyone who inquires.

People ask about it because they’re curious, or they may not understand,” she says. “How will they ever get understand if I don’t talk about it? I can inform your curiosity, as opposed to everyone being in the dark and just sort of creating their own narrative about it.
