Jacob Atem: An Inspirer Who Teaches How to Fight the Odds
Here is one person who had an extremely unfavourable childhood to even think about education. Jacob Atem was a resident of Sudan. His parents were killed in the Sudanese Civil War. He was only six years old then. At that age, it was fortunate enough for him just to survive and flee alive.
He fled Sudan and took shelter in Ethiopia. He used to stay in an East African Refugee camp. However, his dream for life improvement didn’t die even in that tender age. Eventually, he tried to study hard and became an English graduate.
During his graduation also he didn’t have any place to call home. But he still didn’t give up hope and stick to all possibilities of completing education. In 2012, he opened a medical clinic in South Sudan to help the people of his village. Isn’t it amazing to know how a homeless boy fulfilled his dream to make his life exactly the way he wanted it to be?
