Watson Fellow.  Her Watson Fellowship project, “Braiding: Traditional Art, Esthetic Service, or Cultural Expression”, took her to seven countries to investigate the role and significance of hair braiding in female socialization in various cultures.


Through her blog, The Natural Hair Advocate, she encourages readers to love and embrace their natural textures by showcasing the beauty of African hair from political, historical, and sociological viewpoints.  Ndija is a graduate of Spelman College (BA in political science and French) and McGill University (LLB and BCL law degrees).  She lives in Toronto, Canada, with her husband.
