From The A Train to PhD : A Journey of Survival
We have 0 in stock.
From Dr. Michael P. Williams, a memoir; ‚ÄúFrom The A Train to PhD‚Äù Like so many people, I was locked down alone during the COVID-19, pandemic. My emotions were filled with stress, anxiety, and depression. Then, I remembered some words of wisdom. ‚ÄúWe can wait for the storm to pass, or learn to dance in the rain‚Äù. I also remembered one of the most important lessons learned during my years as a homeless man, I call it ‚ÄúThe sly disguise of opportunity‚Äù. I decided to commit myself to the goal of completing my doctoral degree and writing my first book, during the lock down. It was while writing the book that I took the very painful journey into my darkest days. However, my mother always told me, ‚ÄúWe must confront the darkest, in order to find the light‚Äù. I had to relive how I chased after a pot of gold, only to end up sleeping on the subways. I did everything in my power to please other people, with the hope that it would build my sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Only to learn that is a gift that comes from a different place. So, after decades of searching, I finally found what I needed to make me whole. To my shock, it was right in front of me the entire time. And, yes, it is a gift. However, the only way to keep it is to share it. I hope I have done so with this book.
