Christian Author Shares His Journey From His Homeland to the United States to Achieve His Dreams and Escape Religious Persecution

Author Victor Zaki writes ‘My Life Journey from Darfur, Sudan to Boston, USA’ to showcase his personal tenacity in achieving freedom and encourage readers to do the same

Bloomington, Indiana, UNITED STATES

NEWTON, Mass., Feb. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Victor Zaki spent his life working hard, studying hard and putting his faith in God to help guide him through his various endeavors. In his illuminating memoir “My Life Journey from Darfur, Sudan to Boston, USA,” Zaki weaves his personal narrative with historical insight to illustrate his pilgrimage from his birthplace in Sudan to his current, successful life in the United States.

Zaki was born in Sudan, Africa and brings the different cities of Sudan to life in his book. He discusses how many citizens are lacking clean water, electricity and proper homes. Despite their dismal living conditions, Zaki explains how these individuals are generous and welcoming.

“With my book, I wanted to share the beauty of the citizens of Sudan,” said Dr. Zaki. “They proved to be a positive light in the midst of the challenges our country faced.”

During his last few years in Sudan, Zaki, a Christian man, watched as the military took over and persecuted members of his community who were Christians. The government-controlled broadcast media and became the only television station that people could turn to for news. Zaki decided in 1990 to move on with his family to the U.S. Since he was young, he began traveling the world to become a doctor. His studies in medicine took him to Egypt, the United Kingdom and ultimately to the United States—where he still resides.

Throughout his travels, Zaki loved the people that he came into contact with. His primary goal was to improve the lives of the members of his community—to make each destination better than when he first arrived. He worked 20 years as a medical doctor in different cities in Sudan. Whenever he was unable to alter negative situations, he would pray to God for guidance.

Zaki hopes that with his book, “My Life Journey from Darfur, Sudan to Boston, USA,” he can inspire readers to follow their academic dreams and stay true to their spiritual convictions.
