Super excited! My book, #IAmaGirlfromAfrica is now available for pre-order. I wrote my memoir to inspire others to join the good fight in creating a better world for all of us — grounded in the African philosophy of #Ubuntu🟡 @ScribnerBooks @ScribnerUK https://t.co/wVhe0w1xvg

Just when they thought it couldn’t get worse, it did. From insects to drought to floods—farming is tough in BeInsouthern Niger. The @UN is supporting with tools & skills women need—like engines that power grain mills—so all can survive and thrive. https://t.co/IdJnxKSOZ6 https://t.co/Al2WiRfcH5

What is #Ubuntu? I am excited to share more about this very powerful #African concept, which is the foundation of my memoir #IAmaGirlFromAfrica. Ubuntu is the understanding that we are all connected by our shared humanity. #Africanwisdom https://t.co/I2vPgeHEcH

Humbled to receive this early @goodreads review of #Iamagirlfromafrica. For so long our beloved African continent has been misunderstood. Yet to us, Africa is our PRIDE; representing hope & humanity. We are 1.2B strong, across 55 countries, with 2000+ languages. #AfricaPride https://t.co/OkztbAkBy9

BUY A BOOK, GIVE A BOOK - 1 book of ‘#AmaGirlFromAfrica’ is DONATED TO AFRICA with each preorder. Thrilled to inspire girls/boys in #Africa, because when we can picture ourselves in the stories we read, it enables us to see what is possible for ourselves. Thanks @scribnerbooks 🙏🏾 https://t.co/bp37ZKyOH4

Today marks the beginning of #BlackHistoryMonth. It's a time to celebrate the accomplishments and excellence of Black women and men, girls and boys. It's also a time to recommit to anti-racist work and to stand up for human rights of Afrodescendentes. https://t.co/tXBh7qQQZj
