“The single story creates stereotypes. And the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story. “
-Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
This quote rings true even a decade after these words were spoken. While I, a child born in Zimbabwe had a multititude of experiences, the world often dilutes my experience and that of my fellow brothers and sisters to a monolith, labelled “the African experience.” Therefore, I see this as a responsibilty to change the narrative. After all, every society on the planet is multi-dimensional.
