In this episode (1 of 2), we speak with Fakhrriyyah Hashim who shares her views on the ongoing #ENDSARS protest in Nigeria, the Nigeria she met and the one she hopes it becomes.

My first real experience with Nigeria was in 2005. I was 14 years old. 60 of my friends passed away in the Sosoliso plane crash.
