Nigerian Hollywood actress, Uzo Aduba who spoke at Glamour x The Girl Project rally for girls, brought down the house with her story of how she came to own up her name ‘Uzoamaka’.
Uzo Aduba said she told her mother to stop calling her “Uzoamaka’ but call her ‘Zoe’ instead because no one could pronounce her Nigerian name.
Her mother who was surprised by this plea, told her that if people could pronounce Michelangelo, Tchaikovsky and Dostoevsky, they should also learn to pronounce her name.
