Overview
"Never Alone: Inspiring Through Literacy and Education" is a memoir of one woman's drive to never give up in their pursuit of education and learning. As Glory demonstrates over and over again, with an education and commitment to lifelong learning, anything is possible.
Description
"Never Alone: Inspiring Through Literacy and Education" is the true story of "Glory" (fictitious name of the author), who above all demonstrates that she is unstoppable and able to achieve anything she sets out to do, not only because of her incredible drive and talent, but also thanks to the enduring love and guidance of God. Born in Nigeria and later immigrating to the United States, Glory makes her mark on everything she does. Her intelligence and dedication to learning propels her to unprecedented academic success during elementary and high school (most notably in mathematics and science), earning multiple degrees; working in architecture, business, and education; becoming the first female international president of an esteemed association; and being blessed with promotions, accolades, good fortune, bounty, gifts, and graces.
About the author
Arch/Dr. Winnie Nnakwe is a young Nigerian who migrated to the United States after graduating from high school. She initially struggled academically due to the academic setback of the Biafra War and later became one of the top students in her class. Her interest in education grew to become a love of learning. She found God early and allowed God to direct her path, becoming a leader and mentor. Along the way, she developed the ability to invent a course of action through society where she encountered its expectations of a woman, norms, and limitations. By the grace of God, Arch/Dr. Winnie continued her quest for knowledge in a foreign land bridging two cultures (Nigerian and American), and three professions and careers (Architecture, Business and Education) to literacy's true freedom. She is self-assured and ready to inspire those who may have been dealing with education barriers for one reason or the other to understand that "literacy is liberating but illiteracy is debilitating and incapacitating."
