Memoir Miss Fortune: A Story of a 'crow' who stopped living her fears...
I'm the author of the memoir Miss Fortune.
Born and raised in a small village of Ukraine, I grew up with my three younger siblings. Having a speech impediment, not able to pronounce the letter R, I believed that I was a 'crow' not worthy of love. Such fear has created many misfortunes in my life, from failing dreams and relationships, to even ending up in a police cell for 51 days. “Who would think that my inability to pronounce the letter R would turn my life upside down and lead me from Ukraine to South Africa?”
Currently, I live in South Africa advocating for an end to illegal trade in rhino horn, which kills rhinos and people of Africa. I'm calling for legalization of trade in horn - a renewable product - to help create harmony between African people and their natural heritage.
As for my book, I hope to inspire my readers to live their dreams, not their fears, to become masters of their own destiny.
