The Amazing Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I am going through a total Beyonce faze...or am I ever really not in a Queen B faze???
Well one of my favorite songs is ***Flawless feat. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I had no idea who Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was, but her speech in the middle of ***Flawless inspired me, so I looked her up. 
Below is her amazing TED Talk, which Beyonce took parts of. This video is inspiring and amazing and everything I feel about being a feminist. I never openly called myself a feminist before I saw this video, but she inspired me. There are so many gender conflicts in this world and her talk is phenomenal. She shares her own stories, stories of her friends, and her opinion of what is wrong with Nigeria, and more broadly the world. 
If you are all about that "girl power" check out the video below, it is truly amazing.

  1. AH! Love Chimamanda! What even? Have you read any of her amaaaazing books? Her writing is literally flawless! If you're interested, you should definitely check out Americanah, or The Thing Around Your Neck. Ugh, can't get over how awesome her books are.
