Birthdays are for celebrating
and famzing beautiful people, like the world renowned, award winning Nigerian author of Half of A Yellow Sun that one was in the same room with for 10 days straight, soaking up as much creative juices as one could.
To this special lady who taught me to be unapologetic for my sometimes brazen writing voice, and that showing is so much better than telling in creative writing, I wish you much more than you could possibly wish yourself as a new year begins for you.
Happy birthday Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
From a grateful student,
In solidarity, bra burning and all.
*phew* I made it just in time.
