The Yemi Episode: Coming to America

The last time Maeve went to an aquarium, she fainted. This time, with the big-hearted aquaponics farmer Yemi Amu by her side, she totally looked at a fish and stayed conscious! Yemi was a high achieving school-girl in Lagos, Nigeria who came to New York and had to start over, helping her dad at his janitor’s job, learning to deal with some strange ideas Americans had about Africans, and figuring out how to overcome an eating disorder on her own. Mona Chalabi tries to talk Maeve into finding her a husband, and a security guard interrupts a night time ice-cream raid.
