This article explores the experiences and the self actualisation of Nigerian women in the diaspora using experiences of three Nigerian women based in Australia, the UK and USA as case studies. I will trace the progress of these women from their prediaspora era to their adaptation to the diasporan way of life and their selfactualization. The paper outlines reasons behind their struggle to succeed and aspirations to improve their social status. The paper will describe the challenges these women face and their fortitude in turning these challenges to their advantage.
