The Journey of an African Child
The Inspirational Story of My Life
by Stanley Ngwa

Many people have lost their way, focus, or direction due to unbearable life circumstances. There have been times in my life when I gave up hope and contemplated committing suicide. Sometimes, I barely survived challenges and regained hope to continue with my life journey. Do not let any circumstance define your entire life. Fight back and even if you don’t win, others may win because you fought. The heart will be comforted because at least you did something about your predicament. Every fight or competition is not just to win. It is to learn, re-assess and make corrections in order to motivate the heart. The secret of fighting back and taking control of one's life is by understanding the indomitable human spirit, which is in everybody. The human spirit is from God and usually very strong and effective when built on hope. When there is hope, the brain seems to be able to function at a higher capacity with more clarity and there is a chance for better solutions to problems. Hopelessness, on the other hand, brings anger and other emotions to the forefront, which often leads to poor decisions. I have been through enormous challenges and based on my experience, chapter eight of this book is intended to provide words of encouragement and some strategies, which can help you when dealing with difficult life circumstances.

My name is Stanley Ngwa. I am a husband and father of four children. Two boys (16 and 21 years) and two girls (9 and 11 years). I have a B.Sc degree is in Biology, M.Sc in Soil Science, and currently enrolled in a PhD program in Environmental Health. I worked for over two years with the Alberta Provincial Government as Soil Specialist. Currently I am working with the Alberta Energy Regulator as Science Specialist-Soil.

I was born in a small village (Buwe-Bukari) in Bafut located in the North West Province of Cameroon, Africa. I have lived, studied, and worked in three different continents (Africa, Europe, and North America). I hope my life story and the adversities I had to overcome across these three continents can make a difference in someone's life.
