An African student travels to America for college. He's in for the ride of his life...
One afternoon in the spring of 1999 in the Republic of Boluake in Central Africa, John Malinke's parents call him to the living room of their family home for a chat. The conversation turns out to be anything but ordinary when his father Jacob suddenly says to him:
"John, we would like you to go to college in the United States of America."
Rather than being overcome by a rush of excitement like most future college freshmen would be, this revelation creates a deep sense of uncertainty and reluctance in John's mind.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I'm an artist with a strong passion for the written word and the performing arts. I was born in Yaounde, capital city of the Republic of Cameroon, in Central Africa, in 1978. I believe that it is important for each of us to pursue our dreams and use our talents to glorify God, the giver of all talent and the creator of all human beings. In addition to English I also speak and write in French and my interests include film and TV acting, acting for the stage, journalistic and fictional writing. I love performing in front of the camera and comedy is among my most favorite genres.
