Dealing with Stigma and Discrimination

Hi everybody,
I am Wale from Nigeria. I have lived with hbv for 12 years. I initially contemplated suicide. I am however glad I did not. Hbv carriers are highly stigmatised in Nigeria. Due to this, I was unemployed for years after graduation from the university. I later got a job and now I desire to study abroad. But I am afraid I may be stigmatised and discriminated against as is the case here in Nigeria. Do I stand a chance of fulfilling my academic goals? Nice to meet you all.
Thank you.
