Being born into royalty could not save her from abuse, neither did it save her from depression and suicide tendencies. Fumi, an African princess tells it all for the very first time- growing up in a Nigerian Royal Family, her thrilling story of sacrifice and Forgiveness in the mist of Turmoil and Oppression, and her courage to rise in victory. She emigrated to the United States to "find herself".

Additional Information

In her very own words: " I feel privileged to have been used as a vessel to touch lives, particularly women and children. While working as a Program Coordinator for battered women's shelter in New Jersey, I met several ladies who seemed lost, confused, disappointed and filled with shame and disgrace. The majority of them looked and felt like walking corpses, just waiting to be tipped over. They desperately needed something or someone to believe in. And as God would have me do, I began to share my experiences with them. Amazingly, He in His infinite wisdom touched these women's lives. I began to see incredible changes in their attitude towards life. With this intervention, some of them even began to stand up for LIFE, just like I did several years ago. For years, I lived in other people's world except mine! I became who everyone and anyone wanted me to be. As a result, I lost myself and became very suicidal. With this experience, I was able to identify with these women, irrespective of their social or cultural backgrounds. Abuse is the same across board. My encounter with these wonderful women encouraged me to finish this book: Stepping Out…fulfilling Your Destiny." She is currently working on a Stepping Out workbook, scheduled for release in December 2001 as well as a motivational guide for women. Princess Fumi's latest assignment is the first in the series: Life Steps for Real Women - Volume 1- Tell the TRUTH! Please be on the look out for this book.
