Barbara is from Nigeria where she did her undergrad in Nigeria in Mass Communication. She discovered folk studies through her uncle (who is her guardian), a friend of Dr. Njoku. Dr. Njoku who told him more about folk studies and about WKU. Folk studies is not a program offered in Nigeria.

Folk studies appealed to Barbara because of her love for cultural diversity, meeting people and getting to know more about them.



Barbara plans on going for her PhD immediately upon completing her MA at WKU.
