Yvonne Orji is an Nigerian American actress, comedienne, writer and author. Where Orji finds herself today was not an obvious path. The child of immigrants, she was destined to become a doctor, until destiny intervened. A devout Christian, Orji explains how after a faithful encounter with God, she exchanged her dreams of a stethoscope for her dreams with a microphone as a stand-up comedienne. The risk has had its share of deep disappointment and great reward.

Orji’s comedy has landed her on national main stages like Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center, where she was an opening act for comedy legend, Chris Rock. Her solo performace has garnered sold-out shows from Atlanta to London. Her podcast, Jesus and Jollof (named after the two things she and co-host Luvvie Ajayi cannot live without) boasts over two million downloads and has a global, growing fan base of young adults. It was featured at the world-famous Apollo Theather and has made the top lists in Marie Claire Magazine and on Apple’s homepage . While Orji cannot help but to deliver her messages with humor and flair, she also covers serious topics like bullying, pursuing purpose, and overcoming hardships.

Orji’s speeches are equal parts funny and inspiring, motivating listeners to believe in their personal power and encouraging them to reach beyond the familiar and the comfortable to embrace the difficult and the uncertain. Audiences are left feeling empowered by her example of living with purpose instead of fear.
