Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian Female writer whose 1st book Purple Hibiscus won the Best First Book award in the 2005 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and  Half of a Yellow Sun, her 2nd book was awarded the 2007 Orange Prize for Fiction was at the TED 2009 Global Talk in England.
She gave a talk on the danger of telling a single by drawing into her own story of growing up and eventually becoming a writer.
I hope It will inspire you as it did me on the importance of telling our many stories.
