It was a video that Cal State San Bernardino student Prince Ogidikpe meant to share with friends: His jubilant reaction to a letter confirming his U.S. citizenship, given to him as a gift from his mother on Christmas Day.
The video went viral on social media soon after, and was picked up by the national news media at the beginning of 2017.
Ogidikpe, who originally moved to the U.S. in 2010 from Bayelsa State, Nigeria, is majoring in biology/pre-med. He explains why CSUSB was the best choice for him.
