Forgive this long story: A few years ago in my dolphin store I was told by my sales person at the time (offhandly) “oh ma, we sold ......... and someone left a note for you” Me: “Who? and where’s the note?” Her: “I’m looking for it ma... but she said she’s Mandy or something...” Two days later: “Ma, I’ve found the note”. She proceeds to give me the nicest, most encouraging note anyone has ever written me. I get to the end and it’s signed “Chimamanda Adichie”. I scream at my sales girl: “You mean you don’t know who Chimamanda is?!?!?!?” She answers “I thought she looked familiar...” I’m happy to say she has now read all of her books. @chimamanda_adichie we have never met but I would like to say thank you for being such an inspiring role model to Nigerian girls. One of my daughters wants to be a writer as well and I’m so glad that you are a role model to her. 🙏🏽
