THE TRUTH IS, IF YOU DON’T TELL YOUR STORY YOURSELF, SOMEONE ELSE WILL DO THAT SOMEDAY. AND, IF THEY DO TELL IT WRONGLY; YOU MIGHT NOT BE THERE TO CORRECT IT. ONLY YOU CAN TELL YOUR STORY CORRECTLY. BE THE FIRST TO TELL THE WORLD WHO YOU ARE, WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH, WHAT YOU STAND FOR AND WHY YOU STILL STAND DESPITE ALL ODDS.

THE RISK OF NOT HAVING A BIOGRAPHY
The story of Cicely Tyson, Buchi Emechete, Nelson Mandela
One of the ways to leave a legacy for the future you might not be a part of is to put down your name and story in every library of the world.
Cicely Tyson, an American actress and fashion model who died on January 28, 2021, almost missed this opportunity. She would have remained an ordinary pioneering American actress whose story was never heard of. She passed on before her biography was released. With her book sales ranking 670 on Barnes & Noble Bookstore; her 432 pages biography has placed her name on the lips of every single mother. Among other things, she shared how she struggled to live with her mother and raising a child at age 18.
BIOGRAPHY IS THE ONLY TRUE HISTORY
– Thomas Carlyle
Other biographies such as “The meaning of Mariah Carey” by Mariah Carey, “No time like the future” by Michael J. Fox, “Black Boy” by Richard Wright, “Head above water” by Buchi Emechete, “Long walk to freedom” by Nelson Mandela have helped redefine their authors and reshape their life opportunities.
If the little the world knows about you today has fetched you respect, authority and accommodation; imagine what you will attain if you open them to more of you. The best opportunity to sell yourself to a global world of intellectuals is having your biography right in their hands. Obama understands this so well.
