Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a famous Novelist, who was born on September 15, 1977 in Nigeria.

Nigerian author who achieved great success with her first novel Purple Hibiscus which was honored with the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book. Her second novel Half of a Yellow Sun was adapted into a film starring Academy Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Adichie completed her secondary education at the University of Nigeria Secondary School, Nsukka, where she received several academic prizes. She studied medicine and pharmacy at the University of Nigeria for a year and a half. During this period, she edited The Compass, a magazine run by the university’s Catholic medical students. At the age of 19, Adichie left Nigeria for the United States to study communications and political science at Drexel University in Philadelphia. She soon transferred to Eastern Connecticut State University to be near her sister Uche, who had a medical practice in Coventry, Connecticut. While the novelist was growing up in Nigeria, she was not used to being identified by the colour of her skin which suddenly changed when she arrived in the United States for college. As a black African in America, Adichie was suddenly confronted with what it meant to be a person of color in the United States. Race as an idea became something that she had to navigate and learn.
