  1. Happy International Women’s Day! I have read a piece about Nujeen, as well as an interview she gave, and she seems like such a positive and cool girl. I’d love to meet her one day, to be honest. I love Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie, she’s one of my favorite writers, you should check out her works, if you haven’t already 🙂
