Description:
This powerful memoir of overcoming abandonment, discrimination and adversity will inspire you to find strength from within, nurture your self-worth and shape your own destiny. Bharti Dhir faced many challenges in her childhood that could have broken her. As a baby, she was abandoned at a bus stop in Uganda before being adopted by Punjabi-Sikh parents. Growing up as a biracial, female child and a refugee, she experienced an insidious chain of racism and sexism in her community. She remembers the horrific moment in 1972 when Idi Amin expelled Asians from Uganda, and her adoptive mother refused, at gunpoint, to abandon Bharti as they fled the country. From these experiences, she learnt to gather strength from within and fight for her worth and true purpose. In this title, she encourages us to reach within ourselves and embark on a journey to find our own resilience, strength and self-worth.
