Wogamatter by Esther Lawson is a compelling tale of a small mixed-race girl, growing up in post-war Britain, and her experiences of racism in all its forms from all quarters of society. A sad story, but one with a real moral at its heart, no reader will fail to be moved by the author's account of her life as a young child and developing teenager. Wogamatter is recounted through the eyes of a child, allowing the reader to feel keenly the bewilderment and confusion of someone persecuted for the way they look. The early narrative throws the naive optimism of a young child into sharp contrast with the abject misery she is subjected to. We are born into the Human Race, however there are no guarantees that you will be accepted; to obtain acceptance is a fight against an automatic classification of colour, rendering you as second class to our counterparts. No law in nature demanded any difference, we are all one.
I have always had a passion for setting myself goals in life, something to strive for, something to achieve against all the odds, most of my life has been against the odds. I love problem solving and enjoy helping anyone who may need my help. I have a great love and passion for creating food from around the world, I believe that could have been another path in life for me to be a chef and own a restaurant. My love of history still remains with me today, and buildings, very old buildings still hold such an interest to me. I live in a very old Victorian house built in 1837, the moment I entered the building I fell in love with it and knew straight away this is my home, I feel honoured and very lucky as it is a listed building, it's very cold in the winter months but a small price to pay for the privilege to once again be part of history.
