A Mile in Our Shoes
Eleven women from around the globe unite to create this extraordinary international book project. These authors invite readers to walk a mile in their shoes and explore the world through their eyes. Eleven different cultures, different life experiences and trajectories, eleven different stories revealing the obstacles that many people and women in particular, face today. Each autobiography shows that despite their various backgrounds, these women all have one thing in common: circumstances have taken them from one part of the world to another. This compilation presents the multifaceted issues of migration; the challenges these women encountered and how they journeyed on in this life with humour and strength of spirit. Nadia Ho de Guillén initiated this project because she believes wholeheartedly in the importance of nurturing global peace and achieving clear communication through listening to and understanding each other. It is her hope that sharing personal stories from diverse life-journeys will help foster cross-cultural communication and ultimately reduce misunderstandings and conflicts.
