33 year old Nigerian born American actress,Yvonne Orji has revealed that she is proud to still be a virgin at this age, adding that she will remain that way until she's married and that her being virgin till this age was as a result of her religious belief.

In an interview with PEOPLE,  the Nigerian-American actress who is featuring in a TV series HBO 'Insecure' as the role of the character Molly, reveals;


‘I wasn’t going to hide it just because I’m on TV, I’m open, because why not? I’m grounded in who I am’ the Nigerian-born star said.
‘Before any of the fame happened, I sat down with myself and with God and thought, when I make it, how do you want me to represent you while I’m here?’

The 33 year old actress added, ‘It was like, OK, I know why I’m here. It’s to make you proud.’

She disclosed that she doesn't feel awkward to discuss with anyone concerning her decision, as she further explained:

‘How will they ever get understand if I don’t talk about it? I can inform your curiosity, as opposed to everyone being in the dark and just sort of creating their own narrative about it.’

Orji a masters graduate of George Washington University  in Public Health, went further to reveal that her parents never intended for her to be an actress, their plan was for her to become a medical doctor.

‘[I told them] it would take me eight years to become a doctor, but give me eight years to make it in entertainment. And I’m happy to say, we did it in seven.’

The Port Harcourt born lady who at the age of 6, immigrated to the United States from Nigeria,
disclosed that it was difficult for her to adjust into the new system there as she got bullied for her strong mother tongue interference.

She expressed gladness of her being a virgin and is hopeful that readers will see the significance of abstinence until marriage and start practicing it.
