Author Talk – Meet Duku Fore: The Poor Kid with Rich Dreams
Duku was only 10 years old when his family emigrated from a Ugandan refugee camp to Australia. As a refugee, life in Australia had already proven to be difficult. But Duku had a lot of dreams, and nothing – not being a victim of bullying, nor his speech impediment and being expelled from his school – could stop him from going after everything he has ever dreamed of.
Even though life in Australia was hard, Duku always had his loving family by his side. Together, they overcame the different culture shocks by learning the new language, getting used to new foods and making a life for themselves. Their parent’s sacrifice and work ethics were the inspiration Duku and his six siblings needed to help ignite their dreams.
An inspiring figure, Duku Forè is an internationally renowned inspirational speaker, entrepreneur, and author. Join Duku as he discusses his story that will move and amuse you as he discovers his rich dreams.
