perseverance

the boy who harnessed the wind-william kamkwamba

So much about this book made me feel fulfilled, inspired and made me realize the importance African stories.

The author’s perseverance, love for education, resilience in not giving up even through hardships made me realize that there is nothing that should stop me from pursuing my dreams.I have been blessed with opportunities and resources and as the author stated “If you want to make it, all you have to do is try.”

I have been really appreciating and finding a different kind of satisfaction, solidarity, understanding when reading African stories.

While reading I had to pause several time just to appreciate parents, parents like William’s, parents like mine who sacrifice so much to give us plenty. Many cheers to them!
