AHA! Journal Week 4

The other day in class we watched another TED Talk. I am a big fan of TED talks. They are very inspiring lectures. The TED talk we watched this time was by Chimamanda Adichie. Her presentation was entitled The danger of a single story. Chimanmanda is a Nigerian writer. In her presentation she talked about growing up in Nigeria and how there wasn't much Nigerian literature. Because of this she grew up reading British books. She also mentioned how her roommate in college was surprised when she found out that Chimamanda grew up listening to American music. The whole point of of her speech was that there is more out there than your view of the world. You can find out so much by looking at another person's point of view.
