Pequena biografia
Throughout her writing career, Adiele has published essays in many journals, magazines, and anthologies. Using the penname Jane Harvard, Adiele co-wrote the novel The Student Body with three of her classmates: Michael Melcher, Bennett Singer, and Julia Sullivan. The novel takes place at Harvard and involves crime and sex scandals. In addition, Adiele has produced a PBS documentary called My Journey Home that records her journey to Nigeria to reunite with her father. She is currently working on a memoir, Twins: Growing Up Nigerian/Scandinavian/ American, which discusses her multicultural background, her childhood, and her reunion with her father.

Compelling story. Jumbled writing/formatting.

3.5/5 stars. A deeply moving look at a Nordic-Nigerian woman's experience with fibroids and the healthcare system. It's also an excellent look at culture, gender, and the intersection at which Faith Adiele lives. I absolutely want to read more by her.

Stimulating is the best way to describe this book. In addition to the factual information about the Buddhist faith that Adiele provides, readers are given a narrative of her spiritual journey, as well. Adiele is a relatable narrator with whom the reader can relate, no matter one's background, social situation, or faith. Her self-discovery mirrors the desire to reveal what is innately human in all of us; in immersing herself in a completely foreign culture, Faith Adiele identifies those things.
