1. Tell us something about yourself?
I am Shantial, an Entrepreneur by profession, a philanthropist by nature, and a writer by passion. I am an African-American peace-loving human being who wants to end the suffering of humanity and promote intracultural harmony and tolerance. Apart from this, I like to travel to distant beaches and watch the sunset.
I am a sensitive person, and from an early age, I wanted to write down my feelings and emotions. However, I never thought of writing a book. I struggled a lot during my life, and it motivated me to write a book to express myself and to help individuals going through the same phase of life. Now I meditate through my writings, which helps calm my fierce soul.
2. Your book, “Shantial’s African American, It was Accomplished,” was published recently. To begin with, could you tell those who do not know much about the book?
I am the author of “Shantial’s African American, it was Accomplished.” This book is about the real-life struggle of an American-American man who has seen life and its hardships. He now wants to help people worldwide by motivating them to aim higher in life.
This book is about me, and I am the narrator and protagonist of this book. As an African-American,I survived the struggles and came out much stronger.
3. What inspired your debut?
A close friend of mine was going through the darkest time of his life. Everything in his world seemed to be crumbling around him. Additionally, he was thinking of ending his own life by committing suicide. During that time, I was there next to him and listened to what he had to say. Following that short period of meditation, he had a sense of relief. After that, I decided to offer hope to other individuals experiencing the same mental condition by sharing my personal account of my life with them.
I was surprised to learn that 12.2 million people have thoughts of suicide every single year. These individuals need our attention. They need to be heard or read something that helps them escape their dilemmas.To put pen to paper and compose this book was mainly inspired by the reasons mentioned above.
