Enrich Your Mind is an organisation that has done a lot through the years to help people improve themselves; we have done this through stories, connections and mentorship programmes. Our events and the books written by the Founder, Mr. Uwem Umana have helped shape the narratives in certain circles as spoken for in the numerous mails we receive week after week.

A Great Mentor!

Having Uwem as a mentor has been a rewarding experience. He believed in me and that made all the difference! He supported my decisions, advised me on the best possible decisions to makeand left them on the table, believing I would make the right one. What I appreciate the most is that he invokes your thought process rather than expecting you to go with his suggestion or advice. He is consistent, dependable, committed and fully devoted in genuinely helping you build your personality and achieve your goals. The time, effort, resources and work he puts into developing your ideas, and making you realise your strengths is exceptional and rare. His love for learning makes him draw inspiration from everything surrounding him; and I have had the privilege of gaining from such wisdom.

A Personal Note About Uwem.

I was blessed to be mentored by Uwem, He was such a great colleague and a good friend to me. As a mentor he is competent, have appropriate knowledge and have confidence to take risks and allow students to develop within their own terms. He recognizes my strength and limitations.  Uwem always motivates me. This encouragement motivated me to move forward despite many challenges. Uwem identified and expressed my strength to instill confidence in me. He helped me to focus by setting a goal and attaining it. He encouraged me to take driving lessons, now I have a driving license. I don’t have to rely on people anymore to take me places. I am thankful.

Great Read!

My love for reading has been revived by reading these short tales. Short and crispy. I have enjoyed each short story and wished it did not end. Umana is now my new fav. I have leaned so much about cultures and geography than I did at school. I can’t wait for volume 4. I highly recommend this collection.

Heartwarming tales from an authour who has clearly seen much of the world!

Wow. I must be honest I’m a young person whose love of reading has certainly been curtailed by the onslaught of easily accessible alternative forms of entertainment #netflix. As a result I really dont read many books but when I heard of this book which is more focused on short stories than long and complex tales which i admittedly prefer to watch than to read these days, my interest was piqued. What I love about this book is how it offers glimpses into the lives of people in cultures very different to mine. It’s a book that is able to drop pearls of wisdom (pun intended) without coming across like a lecture. This is a remarkable achievement for someone who is also a teacher. It’s a really great read and each story is easily digestible so I can imagine this will be a commuters favourite or a before bed time companion. Would 100% recommend you give it a try.

Awesome Book!

An amazing book with chapters that are going to resonate with me forever. So many important and impactful lessons to learn from reading each pages and I must say that the author’s style of writing, building up the stories and sometimes keeping the reader in suspense is so intriguing and by the time I was done reading each chapter, it felt good with the build up all coming together and it was excellently worth it.

A Book that you cannot put down

This is a fantastic read. For someone who has recently begun to rekindle their relationship with literature, this book certainly did not disappoint.

This work collates tales that bring together a whole host of cultures and relationships. The writing is intelligent, thought provoking, and finds a way of speaking directly the soul of the reader.

I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

Uwem Umana breathes life and passion into his characters, in each of his narratives. He has an amazing eye for detail and great editorial instincts. Enrich your mind leaves you desiring for more. This page has my highest recommendation.

I enjoyed reading every chapter of this book as each chapter shares a unique moral lesson about life and I must say the collections are great and one of my favorite chapters is the chapter about forgiveness. A great read and I surely recommend it.

A Great Book Indeed!

The book is very intriguing, it follows a part of the life of the author on his journey through this thing we call life, it is a very interesting story to see different view points as we always get caught up with our story but reading about others perspective changes how one perceives and understand the decisions others make. If by chance you come across the book I will encourage you to give it a try and watch the page turn themselves. I look forward to the next release if there is one. Thank you for the wonderful piece of art Mr uwem.

I have come to value teachers more after reading these short stories. Teachers are like prophets who have the ability to speak life into his/her students.

I have enjoyed this collection. My favourite is the green snake in the green grass. Transparency pays. Anita represents that green snake and I am so happy that Amir decoded her straightaway.
