Nkechi Bianze
Nkechi Bianze is the name. I love reading and writing, but I still haven’t come around to being comfortable with the “writer” tag, maybe because that puts some level of needless pressure on me. I’m highly analytical. I love love and I love life. I’m passionate about advocating for the rights of children, the elderly and women. I am a feminist who advocates and believes in the need for a gender equal planet.
