Far From Home: An African Son in the Promised Land
A Story of Love and Resilience
Far From Home takes us on the journey of Brahima Diallo’s life in four countries on two continents. In vivid detail, he tells of his hopes and dreams growing up dirt-poor in Cote D’ Ivoire. At the dawn of the new millennium, he arrives in Mali to complete high school.
There, a more introspective, ambitious, and reckless new young man emerges, one who loathes his living conditions and aspires for more. He daydreams of making it one day to the West—or at least to leave his ancestral home.
Brahima is a New York City-based author and entrepreneur. He is the Founder and CEO of Zero Language Barriers LLC; a cross- cultural consulting, coaching and language service company specialized in translation, interpretation, tutoring and visa application.
