One of ELLE’s ‘12 women changing the world’ explains why you should talk to your trolls
Minna Salami is a journalist, writer, and TED speaker. Based in the UK, with a childhood in Finland and her formative years in Nigeria, she uses her triple nationality to frame her writing; and has emerged as a feminist voice with an African-centered perspective, on her blog msafropolitan.com. ELLE Magazine named her one of ‘12 women changing the world’ with Michelle Obama and Angelina Jolie. In this in-depth interview, Minna argues bloggers have an important role driving global political change; explains how it can be productive to engage with trolls and detractors; and reveals why she enjoys the ‘challenge’ of writing.
