All things are possible when your dreams are powered from the heart. -William Kamkwamba
William Kamkwamba, whom I first blogged about three years ago continues his amazing ascent. Where there was nothing but a drought laden field he built a tower of scrap wood, climbed it and built a windmill out of flatten plastic pipe and wire he wound himself. He climbed the stage at TED and has inspired thousands. As an adult, he went back to school and climbed the learning curve of academia despite a rudimentary village education. This morning he was beamed around the world as he was interviewed on Good Morning America. His book, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind comes out tomorrow, when he will begin to climb the best sellers lists. I can't wait to read it. I am even part of it! I am mentioned five times according to Amazon's Search Inside. How cool is this:
One of Soyapi's bosses, a tall American named Mike McKay, liked the article about my windmill so much that he wrote about me on his blog, Hacktivate.
Thanks for mentioning me William - and congratulations!!!
