Published by iUniverseBooks

The road to success, prosperity and happiness is not a closed door to anyone neither is it an exclusivity for a privileged few. Whether it is the individual, tribe, nation or race, we are only victims of our birth circumstances if we choose to be. The Road We Traveled is the story of Uchendu, a typical African child narrating the circumstances of birth in his native African village, along with the family heritage, traditions and religion. It delves into the travails to overcome imposing hardships and obstacles caused by a lack of the basic amenities, such as clean water, electricity, shelter, food, clothing, transportation networks, schools, and the healthcare services that developed countries take for granted.

The difficulties encountered motivated Uchendu to strive to make the world a better place for him and others to live and this personal experience summarizes the struggle of not only his tribe, nation and continent, but also of the entire human race that have had to overcome these hindrances and challenges that have been there from the beginning of time. Uchendu offers a retrospective of his experiences in Africa, with regards to the struggles, pains, failures and successes experienced in living abroad in Europe. In the Road We Traveled, he shares his experience from his African past to his European present and strikes a balance between his past in Africa, and his present life in Europe and future aspirations he knows will happen in time.
