Michel Chikwanine "Child Soldier" book cover

An accomplished motivational speaker and author of the graphic novel, Child Soldier: When Boys and Girls are Used in War, Michel grew up amid the terror of the Great War of Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Much of his childhood was ravaged by the death and decay of a war that claimed the lives of 5.8 million people, his father included, and forced him to be a child soldier. Now a student at the University of Toronto finishing a BA specialist in African Studies, he speaks to different audiences inspiring them to believe in their ability to fulfil their purpose and have a sense of hope through social responsibility.
