This book was written to provide my son Frank and grand daughter Shoshauni an account of my journey from the time I was a happy little girl in Africa through the hardship that came with the loss of my Dad during the French/Indochina conflict. The years of growing up in the west of France under the very restrictive conditions existing in the catholic system of education I was attending and the financial difficulties the country was faced with following several years of war. The second part of my autobiography reflects on my carrier in California following my divorce after 6 years of marriage. I went back to school, received a Bachelor and Master degrees and became very successful at my job with one achievement after the other, including Department Manager of the Year and Twice Recipient of the President Discretionary Award. My life is an example of how to overcome adversities. When asked if given a choice would I change anything, the answer is No. My professional life was a constant challenge and feeling of achievement. My private life is also rewarding due to my travels, and my work as a volunteer sharing my knowledge with the local students.
