Description

This is the unforgettable true story of a young boy's remarkable journey: from civil war in east Africa to a refugee camp in Sudan, to a childhood on welfare in an affluent American suburb, and eventually, to a full-tuition scholarship at Harvard University. Following his father's advice to 'treat all people - even the most unsightly beetles - as though they were angels sent from heaven,' Mawi overcomes the challenges of racial prejudice, language barriers, and financial disadvantage to build a fulfilling, successful life for himself in his new home. 'Of Beetles and Angels' is at once a compelling survival story and an inspiring model for anyone.
