A lady on twitter has narrated how she was forced to modify her name after her Yoruba name made it hard for her to get jobs in the UK.
She said that she’d applied for jobs for months with her given Yoruba name, Yemisi but never got one.
She added that she’d made her middle name Sophie her first name instead and it had worked immediately

Yup. I applied for jobs for months while i lived in the uk = nothing. I changed from my Yoruba Yemisi to Sophie. Got a job immediately.
Ps. I didn’t get A NEW NAME. My middle name is on my passport and all documents , so just flipped it.
