The book that has most influence on my life is Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne. I am very much inspired by Phileas Fogg, the main character. He always finds ways to overcome obstacle and attain his goal. I read this book during the turning point of my life; I was looking for ways to go to the US for my education. I was facing a lot of obstacles and this book inspired me to move forward. I fulfilled my dream, completed my education, and succeeded to do many community development works. Even now, I am following the same principle. I recommend everybody to read this book especially the younger generation. This book teaches you not to give up on your dream even in the most difficult situations.
