Yemisi’s Story | DNA Discussion Project | Ancestry


So I just always saw myself as a black
woman who was Nigerian and Jamaican. Even though it’s hard blending the two
identities, I think I’m a great composite of both of my parents. I just felt like
what more could I possibly learn when everyday I feel like I’m being
fed my culture again, and again, and again. I don’t feel a disconnect
to it. I go home and it’s like being in a little Ibadan state in Nigeria
and I took the test and I was shook. There’s 13% European
and I’m just like, “Who? When? Who was mixing way back then?” So,
that’s what I would tell people, is that there is no way that
you won’t learn something. ♪ [music] ♪
