“The Danger of a single-sided story” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
My story has been one of ups and downs. It inspires me every day to move because I have no room for negative energies, and do not let people define me.
As the Great Chinua Achebe said “Nobody can teach me who I am. You can describe parts of me, but who I am – and what I need – is something I have to find out myself.”
Avoid letting people tell you who you are, the fact is, they know only a small piece from their own perspective which is one-sided and putting you in a confined box. This is a major reason to take part in the Afro-Bloggers convention and get yourself well informed.
The Afro-Blogger Convention (ABC) is the coming together of bloggers of African descent from all over the world, who tell their story from their perspective, protecting the image of the continent and speaking with one voice to discuss and proffer solution to the issues of our community.
The second Afro-Bloggers Convention will take place online, on the 19 – 20 June 2020. The Topic is Re-information. It will be an interactive session with various speakers which will end with a panel discussion for both days. This is an event you cannot afford to miss!
