Today I got a express mail from my friend Bettina who lives on the East coast, I opened the envelope and inside I found a book named Dreams of an Immigrant by Elizabeth S. Steger. So I called my friend and she told me that she sent me this book as a gift because it was her inspiration…
It looked nice, so I started reading a few paragraphs and found it actually very interesting…it is a story of an Paraguayan immigrant that had dreams and fought for them, she has become an inspiration for many people.
I believe that people’s story can make an impact in other peoples lives, and I also believe that most of us in different ways have something to learn, something to share and a story to tell…
My blog is my way of communicating, of telling a story, perhaps my story or at least part of it, maybe be someone out there can use all these informations, little tips and suggestions in a practical way, that would me make very happy =)
Here is some information I found in Amazon about the book and the author.
Elizabeth Salomoni Steger has always been a dreamer with a purpose. As a child growing up in Paraguay, she dreamed of earning a degree from an American university. And she dreamed of using that education to become both professionally established and financially independent. Armed with determination and a creative mind, Stegerâ€™s dreams took flight as she won a Rotary scholarship to Purdue University. She still dreams of realizing her ultimate dream â€“ helping the poor children in her native land in achieving their dreams through education and hard work.
Three decades later, Stegerâ€™s renowned expertise in forecasting annual orange crop production has earned her worldwide recognition from the citrus industry. Dreams of an Immigrant walks the reader down Stegerâ€™s own road to success. Her inspiring story is filled with hope and perseverance while providing practical ideas to help readers become successful and make the right choices in life. With the support of her family and her faith in God, Elizabeth takes the future in her hands and makes her dreams a reality.
