Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has just made the Fortune’s annual World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.
According to the magazine, Chimamanda is transforming the world and inspiring others to do the same.
Below is how she was described on Fortune
“The prize-winning Nigerian writer has won admirers with her prose and a pair of viral TED Talks (one of which was famously sampled by Beyoncé). But Adichie has been most powerful in challenging her audiences to think differently and more expansively about Africa, identity, race, and gender. Many in the English-speaking world have embraced the invitation, and she has emerged as a feminist icon—she tells girls to get over being liked—and a fearless political and cultural critic.”
