)-- Author Clementine Wamboye Girenge announced today the release of My Dreams, My Choices: Be Courageous, Do What You Have Never Done, Go Where You Have Never Been, and You Will See the Change, published by Outskirts Press. Girenge’s essentially true story shows the remarkable ambition and perseverance of a young Kenyan girl who is able to overcome the barriers of rural African life and the shock of moving through different cultures, graduating at the top of her class in one of the best schools in the country.
In rural Kenya, even the simple act of going to school shows the enormous ambition of the young Felly, a girl born in a small village within the township of Mumias. Her family is known to everyone and, like many Kenyan families, her paternal grandparents’ story is one filled with sorrow and strife, turning her grandmother into a cold, hardened woman.
Felly’s parents, on the other hand, provide a foundation of love that sets the stage for her, not only to lay down far reaching goals, but to achieve them. Growing up, Felly sees how her family is able to face the ordeals that come their way and as she grows older, she is able to use these lessons to surpass personal struggles that she herself must face.
There are moments when Felly almost surrenders to the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that come her way, including the profound culture shock when she first arrives in Nairobi. Initially overwhelmed, she almost surrenders from moving forward to battle down these barriers, but she finds an inner courage to face down the tremendous odds against her. Ultimately, she graduates at the top of her class -- the achievement of the wildest dream that a little girl born on a rural Kenyan farm could ever have. From there onwards, her journey continues through the most spectacular schools in the country, where she sees success come one after the other.
Girenge’s story provides a fresh perspective on contemporary Kenyan life and the issues facing its people. The author even offers a coupon to her readers for a one week’s free accommodation in a specific, rural Kenyan location. There, they can see for themselves the change that has now occurred in this African country.
