It is with a great honor and privilege to inform you of my new book, My New American Dream: A Personal Story and Perspective of a South Sudanese American Refugee.
I wrote this book for three purposes. First, I want to share my personal story with friends, colleagues, and family members, especially my children and their future children. I want people to know where I came from. In particular, I want to share the richness of my traditional culture and the role of everyone in the family, including children, because I want my children to know how important children can be, even when they are still young. I believe age doesn’t matter much; adults can behave like children and children can act like adults.
Second, I wish to reach other new Americans – refugees and immigrants of this country, young Americans and their parents, as well as those that work with refugees and immigrants, including those who have just returned back home to South Sudan. I frequently use the term “New American Dream” in the book to introduce a different perspective on the concept of the American Dream. “New American Dream” applies more closely to the context of a new world and its meaning extends beyond what those that originally coined the term “American Dream” intended. I believe that new Americans, including young Americans, should rethink and redefine the term to fit their circumstances.
Third, I want this book to be a tool for new Americans and for anyone that wants to positively impact our world. I provide educational information in the last chapter to aid individuals, families, community members, and future leaders. This information includes examples and references about forming effective organizations, collaborating and merging with other organizations or communities, soliciting funding, building meaningful teams, and securing suitable solutions to overcome community divisions and conflicts.
