Sunuma: discarded baby triumphs to tell his story

Book 1 of 3

Liberia: 1989. The country is on the brink of civil war, poverty overwhelms the cities and villages, and uncertainty is everywhere. SUNUMA (which means, “on the dump-pile”) tells the story of a young boy growing up in the midst of war-torn Liberia. At only 3-months old, little Boikai is found discarded on a dump-pile by an older woman who takes him back to her already crowded home. The stakes for survival are high and he quickly develops the courage, wit, and faith to fend for himself against hunger, abuses, and vicious rebel thugs. Despite all his hardship, Roland recognizes the good things in life: the camaraderie of a boys’ club, good books, music, and the smile of a pretty girl.

A moving story of tenacity and redemption, this first book of a planned trilogy shows that through persistence, courage, and faith anything

can be accomplished. It details Roland Kemokai’s journey from a dump-pile baby to the inspirational guide he is today.

 


As a three-month-old baby, an older lady found me trashed on a dump-pile and covered in fire ants in war-torn Liberia. Although it was a sad beginning, I did not let it determine my future. I beat the odds. My mission in life is to help people spark a flame and kindle their inner fire! This is the purpose, voice and message of my book. At the end of the last page of Sunuma, you will feel inspired, entertained, and filled with much gratitude and hope about your own life. With all the love in my heart, I am cheering you onward!

“…Never Ever Give-up on You! No matter what the cynics have said about your future, no matter what unfair hands life has dealt you, you can triumph over your trials and tragedies! You can be victorious! You can live your wildest dreams! This is the purpose of this book, and the message of my speech to various a

udiences. I have seen and experienced the dark and gloomy side of human nature, but I have also experienced the warmth of our light. And I am of the deep and passionate conviction that our light gleams brighter than the tragedies of our darkness!…”

~ Roland Kemokai (excerpt from the memoir SUNUMA)

“Very distinct words come to mind when I think of working with Roland – PROFOUND, GURU, and FRIEND. He has been all of these and so much more through this epic journey. One of my best friends started seeing Roland and she would tell me about her insightful sessions with him, I was floored and said "I need to have a Roland in my life!" Living in Cape Town, South Africa, I figured I needed to have someone local but hadn't really clicked with anyone here. I wasn't entirely sure the sessions would translate well over Skype but I figured that it was worth a try! I haven't looked back, only forward and at warp speed. When I made that decision to include Roland in my life, I was making a commitment to myself that I was ready for some big changes. Monumental shifts, actually. It's been nothing short of amazing. Thank you Roland!”

"Before Coaching with Roland, I was unclear in my life, depressed about my relationship, and contemplating taking depression medication. Once I began working with Roland, things became so clear in my life. I am so happy! I am accomplishing things in my life that I’ve only dreamed of for years, and now I’m living my dream! Roland’s natural energy, smile, and funny personality always get me excited, and ready for our sessions!"

"Roland truly loves humanity. Interacting with him is to experience genuine, unconditional love. I sometimes find it difficult to believe that such an affable spirit could become of a person with a strenuously heart-breaking past as his. But, Roland leads by the example that each of us is born with an irrefutably beautiful essence that is meant to be shared and celebrated. The most meaningful lesson I've learned from our sessions together is how to practice gentle kindness and acceptance with myself. This was counterintuitive to my upbringing, and I'm sure many of us can relate. Roland is a wonderful teacher and guide! If you believe you've been giving your best, but cannot kick the feeling that there must be something more, then the solution and great comfort is to take the journey with a dedicated mentor such as Roland Kemokai. I'm grateful that I encountered Roland at the timing that I did. My approach to life is much more meaningful and present than I've ever known. Thank you Roland, rock on!"

"I connected with Roland’s spirit when I read his book and then realized I have met a force of nature! His style of coaching is a dose of tough love, encouragement, and healing. Before meeting Roland I felt haunted by my dreams and ambitions because I believed they were not attainable, but with the right tools he helped me clear out the clutter. Today, I’m very aware of my life choices and clear about decisions to make for continuous success."

“Roland is like an angel sitting on my shoulder - the kind of angel that will kick your butt lovingly into your next level of growth. A friend I really admire who is pursuing her passion as a vegetarian chef introduced me to this Magic.  She told me about Roland, what an amazing person he is, and that he really helped her at a time when she was struggling to step into herself.  I was going through a lot of confusion at the time. Working for a resort as a massage therapist and thinking, there is something inside me that is begging to be born. But I was experiencing a lot of fear.  Was I ready?  Did I have enough skill, training, experience, maturity?  When I first met Roland, I was taken aback by his ability to be present...to sit with me and all my self-judgement, feelings of being stuck, shame, confusion and let me know both verbally and non-verbally that he saw me...that he understood me...that if I decided to work with him, my whole life would change.  I committed to 6 months with Roland on March 24, 2016 after a profound moment during a yoga class where I just felt ready.   Roland is one of the greatest gifts I have ever received.  He has supported me through every possible ounce of doubt and has encouraged me to step into my self. He is a big thinker, a lover of all humanity, as non-judgmental as they come.  He is wise beyond belief, highly intuitive, and has a well of experience that makes me trust him with my whole heart.  Work with Roland.  It is the best thing you could do for yourself if you desire to be more awake, more yourself, and filled with more love.  Now, nearly 6 months later, I have birthed my business, Open Circle Healing, and I could not be happier that I am giving myself a chance to step into bigger shoes.  Thank you Roland Kemokai!  You are in my heart always.”
