African profiles: Dolly

Dolly Akinde is born in Nigeria, but left the country when she was 7 years old, to live first in Malaysia and later in Denmark where she is now with her father and siblings.

After many years away from Nigeria she recently returned for a vacation. “That was a great experience for me, because it was like being there for the first time. I couldn’t recognise anything, since I was so young when I left. This made the experience even more priceless,” she tells. For Dolly the meeting with Nigeria became an eye-opener, making her realise a lot of thins about her self and the relatively privileged she is living now: “I saw how minimal what I have considered problems, prior to the vacation, really were.”

But her main experience putting feet on African ground again was a feeling of being home. “Being away for so long, made me forget there was a world outside Denmark, I would actually feel closer to in some ways. Africa gave my stay in Europe a new meaning. It strengthened my wish to come back to Denmark and better myself for the sake of my country. To be one of the people who gives my country a good name.”

Since childhood, Dolly has dreamed of becoming a medical doctor, and helping those in need. Today it is still the dream she is pursuing. Taking photos and modelling was a good experience, but she is keeping her main focus on studying medicine. “I have been raised to believe in fighting for what I want in life, and that’s exactly what I intend to do, fight!”
