    Encountering this blog is practically the best welcome I got from blogging at WordPress. Yeah I’m a new blogger but I’m loaded and sizzling.

  3. Such profound and perceptive words there. Listening to Chimamanda made me feel like I am a part of significant history. Thanks for the opportunity. To say the least, I am proud of Chimamanda Adichie.
