really liked it

Great book. Much better than I expected. This memoir focuses primarily on Alek Wek's childhood in Sudan and the turbulent times she had to endure as war broke out and impacted her village. The last quarter of the book goes into Wek's career in modeling and how she never loses focus on what her family and her history have taught her, regardless of her personal success. Inspiring read.
