DIASPORANS MAKING A DIFFERENCE
CHINOMSO D. NWACHUKU, M.A.
Founder Of TalkNaija.org, Chinomso D. Nwachuku is an uncle, brother, friend, story-teller, hype-man, semi-comedian, extroverted-introvert, public servant, Flavour N’Abania fan and lover of all things Nigerian.
As a child in Imo State, Nigeria, his father, a historian, referenced this African proverb frequently:
“Until the lion has his or her own storyteller, the hunter will always have the best part of the story.”
From a young age, Chinomso enjoyed telling and listening to stories. As he got older, he experienced the healing and therapeutic powers in being the author of his own story. He also experienced the feeling of being deprived of the opportunity to tell his story. Chinomso believes that it is empowering when we become the authors of our individual stories. These experiences, as well as others, inspired the development of talknaija.org.
