Tell us a little about your latest book?
My book From the Root to the Fruit , Rising Above Adversities is one that places emphasis on
rising above adversities when faced with challenges and hardship. It epitomizes my life experiences, including my grassroot encounters and upbringing as well as triumphs and achievements. It might also be called a book of perseverance.
Stemming from the bowels of poverty, from an early age, gave me the zest to change the norm. I was driven to be the change she wanted to see. I grew up in a household that was headed by my mother, who is the most hardworking lady on this earth. Her work ethics is unmatched. She has six children, four of whom were fathered by her. My father was absent from my life, so mummy had to capitalize on opportunities working odd jobs in order to cater for our needs.
This book epitomizes using aspects of one’s past to pave the way for the future. Our life experiences shape us into the individuals we are today. We go through numerous disappointments and belittling encounters in our life, but we cannot allow those to dissuade our dreams. We must use our experiences as steppingstones to reach our destination.
Our society tends to focus on the product, yet fail to highlight the process that leads to the end product. Where we are from or our start doesn’t have to interfere with where we want to go.
