I am am a twenty-something young woman trying to find my place in this tumultuous world. I consider myself an Africanah. After reading Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel, Americanah, the counter-term Africanah came to mind and I thought, that is me. The Afroviolet blog is simply a platform to share my thoughts and experiences.
