Lual Lual is a young black man who was born in Sudan and grew up in Ottawa, Canada after emigrating with his family. His journey is filled with challenges including navigating his parents’ separation and dealing with the constant displacement of living in shelters and foster homes.
In the final chapter of the book, Lual tells readers: “fast forward to graduation and my glimpse of an entrepreneurial journey looks to take off. A college grad ready to run businesses full time and live the life he dreamed. No matter what obstacle, you can achieve anything, and no matter the route as long as you know where you want to go you’ll find your trail.”
Lual’s realizations are sure to resonate with foster parents, youth in care, social workers and those who seek a greater understanding of the positive and life-changing consequences that can come from the vital work being done by a caring community.
