First and foremost, I want to say thank you for this opportunity to share my autobiography, in a chance that it will help you understand and empathize with my life story. My name is Paul, I am 38 years old, and I was born in Cameroon, Africa. I grew up in the belly of indigence, not having any means to purchase materials of academic relevance, yet I was fueled by my dreams and vision of betterment to make a difference in my life.
I used to walk 20 miles just to hear and learn about science, chemistry, and math, unknowing of the strength and perseverance it would bestow me later in life. My family is impoverished and cannot afford to finance or adequately support my collegiate/scholastic journey. I have probably walked over a 1000 miles in total to receive a basic lesson in math. I vowed to use my acquired knowledge to share with anyone willing to learn. I came to America with a focused and tireless passion to achieve my goal of education and to make a difference for underprivileged and underrepresented people.
Having a thirst for education has taken me a long way and I will be happy to share this with everyone willing to learn. As Thomas Jefferson said: "Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."
