The true story of understanding of some young people in Africa. In her book, Patricia Bamurangirwa delves into the more serious aspects of emigrating from Africa to Britain and other Western countries alike and challenges some of them face. This is a heartfelt book that aims to bring hope and confidence to those from minority backgrounds, but also to those who have not personally experienced the trials and tribulations of being from an minority ethnic group within the UK. It also serves to educate readers about the cultural and societal issues currently facing Africa - from the responsibilities that have been facing Africa for years, to the corruption and violence, to the leaders of the Western world who need to learn to be happy being rich alongside the African continent. "While the book is a true story," explains Patricia, "all the names have been changed." Africanism encourages every young person to be proud of their heritage, background and ethnicity, as well as the country within which they currently live. This is a book about patriotism, passion and pride. Patricia Bamurangirwa will bring readers to tears with her story, but also hopefully bring laughter too. This is ultimately a story of self-confidence and belief, which will appeal to anyone looking for a motivational and inspirational story.
Patricia Bamurangirwa has had an interesting life in many ways. As the youngest of six children, she moved to four different countries while she was very young, first as a refugee to Congo DRC where she lost her mother, then to Uganda and later to Tanzania and Kenya. Due to her circumstances she missed out on higher education - something she always wanted to have. Patricia now resides in the West Midlands.
