Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche-Beyonce-Flawless


I know that Chanda is a HUGE fan of the highly respected Nigerian Writer & Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and she could write articles upon articles about how much she loves her.

If I could describe Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie in one word, it would be poise. I see her and hear her talk and want to say like Andre 3000 “Behold…. a lady”.

May I have a word please? Helga on inspiration

October 06, 2013


written by a guest blogger

Having been afforded the opportunity to be the first Guest Blogger on chandalalaland I thought it best to start by introducing myself.

My name is Helga Geerhart and I have known Chanda for 3 years.  I am a part time accountant and store assistant and a full time mum.

I love period dramas, have a knack for Dimsum and I’m a Chelsea fan.

My passions include music and literature and I’m generally a happy go-lucky person (most dates).

To kick things off I have decided to write about something I have been dealing with lately, that is,  where to find my inspiration.

So who is your inspiration?

My ten year old son took part in a school book project a year ago where the children were asked to identify and write about who or what inspired them.
