3 Gems from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

This past Sunday, I got to see Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie give a talk for the 10 year Anniversary of Half of a yellow sun,  at the Southbank centre London. Chimamanda is one of my favourite authors and writers. During the talk I was able to see so many different sides to her personality she was confident, sassy and inspirational, I enjoyed every minute.

Here are 3 memorable quotes from the talk that I will certainly hold onto as they all relate to me.

  1. ” I just did not get the memo that men and women are not equal. I did not get memo.”
  2. A feminist is who and what I am. It’s not a cloak I put on certain days and take off on certain days.”
  3. “There is a beautiful strength that comes with being African.”
