But can she add her uncle as Co sponsor or go for corporate sponsorship directly


Better with uncle as co sponsor. Corporate sponsorship is a feeble one as a company can liquidate so what happens to her? Corporate sponsor is better on a B1/2 Visa when attending a conference, symposium etc. However, a statement like: "my current employer has also earmarked so so amount of money to support me through out my studies as part of my contributions to the company" can suffix.

Pls your ideas and suggestions are needed.

Afraid of what? Didn't you know he is meant to be your sponsor? What do you mean by Big cousin? Anybody can sponsor you;just tell the VO your relationship with your sponsor when ask. You are equally afraid of your major; did someone apply on your behalf? Guy stop this unnecessary nervousness and go and collect the visa jo. grin grin grin grin

Then she said the magic word. Na true say people de hear blank. I just didn't hear the rest of what she said. She just gave me the white paper. Mehnn I saw a lot blue papers flying around but I kept my focus, kept my faith in God. I was telling myself mine won't be like that. People say it here. It can't be overemphasised. Going for this interview you have to really fast and pray. Olowogbogboro has done it. I will forever be grateful to God.
