ABOUT ME

I am Chimdinma Adriel Onwukwe, a law graduate and a blogger living in Nigeria. My blog will introduce you to the world of law, lifestyle and literature. I am of the opinion that the things we are passionate about are not random. They are our calling. And that is why it is very important for us to follow and pursue them.

This is exactly what I am doing with THE AFRO READER - sharing the things I am most passionate about with you all - especially AFRICAN LITERATURE! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
