Chimamanda Adichie – Writer, Author
Born in the town of Enugu, Chimamanda Adichie studied Medicine and Pharmacy at the University of Nigeria, at the request of her father. She had always dreamed of becoming a writer, a desire that she credits to Chinua Achebe, Igbo author of the Nigerian masterwork Things Fall Apart.

She quit studying Medicine after a year and a half and left Nigeria at age 19 for the United States to study communications and political science at Drexel University in Philadelphia. She transferred to Eastern Connecticut State University to live closer to her sister.

Today, she is a widely celebrated writer with her three bestselling novels; Purple Hibiscus, Half of a Yellow Sun and her latest novel Americanah (selected as one of the New YorkTimes’ 10 Best Books of 2013)
