Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in a paperback edition, this acclaimed memoir tells the unforgettable story of a young boy's journey from a refugee camp in Sudan to Chicago, where his family survived on welfare. Mawi followed his father's advice to "treat people . . . as though they were angels sent from heaven, " and realized his dream of a full-tuition scholarship to Harvard University. Updated with 14 black-and-white photos and a new epilogue.

About the Author

Mawi graduated from Harvard University and delivered the commencement address at his graduation in 1999. Now 25 years old, he is a successful inspirational speaker for students, community groups, and businesses.

The author is donating one-third of all final proceeds from the book to The HAT Foundation. HAT is a nonprofit organization that provides educational resources and emotional support for recently arrived third-world immigrants in the United States and provides funding for AIDS and malaria relief in Ethiopia and Eritrea.
