Nancy Adimora, Creator, AFREADA


Meet Nancy

Nancy Adimora is the Founding Editor of AFREADA, Africa's online literary magazine. We talk about connecting through stories and how African stories are not just for studying but for enjoyment. Plus, how travelling through African literature is one of the first and most powerful steps in getting to know the continent.

Listen to play

I caught up with the powerhouse behind AFREADA, the amazing and magnetic Nancy Adimora. Nancy is a 23 y/o Nigerian-Londoner with an impressive catalogue of experience having completed her MSc in Leadership and International Development with the African Leadership Centre at King’s College London, and earned her Bachelor in Laws (LLB) from Queen Mary, University of London. In addition to working on partnerships and content creation for TEDxEuston.

If you catch Nancy staring into the distance, she’s probably day-dreaming about a hot plate of Ofe Akwu, or thinking about social innovation and multimedia storytelling in Africa. When she isn’t preaching about “the power of ideas”, Nancy can be found waiting for her Green tea to cool, or stalking strangers on Instagram.
