Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie @chimamanda_adichie was born on September 15, 1977 in Enugu, Nigeria. She is the fifth child in a family of six children.

Adichie enrolled at the University of Nigeria, where she studied medicine and pharmacy. After a year and a half, Adichie relocated to the United States to continue her studies. Although she did not originally study literature, Adichie nourished her longstanding interest in writing.

She worked as an editor for her university's student-led publication, and she published both a collection of poems and a play before completing her undergraduate studies.

She graduated with a B.A. summa cum laude from Eastern Connecticut State University in 2001. She went on to receive master's degrees from both John Hopkins University and Yale University.

From a young age, Adichie was inspired by Chinua Achebe's literary representation of Nigerian people. In 2003, Adichie published her first novel, entitled 'Purple Hibiscus.' It was shortlisted for the Orange Prize and awarded the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book.

She was awarded the Orange Prize in 2007 for her second novel,  'Half of a Yellow Sun' In 2008, she received a MacArthur Fellowship.

A collection of short stories, entitled 'The Thing Around Your Neck' was published in 2009, 'Americanah’ in 2013, ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ in 2014 and ‘Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions’ in 2017.

Adichie's work centers around the themes of Nigerian culture, African identity in the United States, and feminism. 

She has proven to be an inspiration for many people, especially young aspiring female writers.
