Why read this book?
An inspiring true story. Foster Care To Entrepreneurship is a publishing and marketing project by Ottawa author and entrepreneur Lual Lual. The centrepiece of the project is a book that tells the story of a young man’s journey from South Sudan to Ottawa, his experiences growing up—with emphasis on his time in foster care—to how he became a college graduate, entrepreneur and published author.
Lual Lual was born in Sudan and grew up in Ottawa, Canada after emigrating with his family. His journey is filled with challenges including navigating his parents’ separation and dealing with the constant displacement of living in shelters and foster homes.
It’s an inspiring, true story, a tale of hardship, uncertainty, resiliency and hope.
Now in his twenties, Lual has faced adversity head-on and capitalized on every opportunity he could find. With support and determination, he has shaped a life far removed from turbulent his early years. A reflective young man with an avid taste for adventure, Lual ultimately found his purpose and path through entrepreneurship. He is proud to share his uplifting story in the hope that it might encourage others.
