Synopsis: Chief Nnamdi A. Ekenna is known among his family and friends as a talented writer whose essays, thoughts, and commentaries cut through the complexities of life to reveal universal truths. Growing Tall Amidst Obstacles collects Chief Ekenna’s writings for the first time, showcasing the talent and wisdom of a remarkable man. Many of Chief Ekenna’s stories center on his childhood and adolescence in Nigeria. The seventh of nineteen children born to a traditional polygynous family, Chief Ekenna grew up in circumstances that may seem exotic and strange to anyone not familiar with Nigerian Igbo culture. Chief Ekenna has a gift, however, for finding the common experience within his tales, making the unfamiliar seem familiar despite cultural differences. More than a collection of personal reminiscences, Growing Tall Amidst Obstacles records Chief Ekenna’s exploration of his family’s past. After long conversations with his father and uncle, Chief Ekenna discovers the life of his grandfather, a man he never met. Learning of his grandfather’s career as a respected practitioner of traditional Nigerian medicine adds an additional layer to Chief Ekenna’s understanding of his personal heritage and the richness of his culture. Ultimately, Growing Tall Amidst Obstacles represents a dialogue between Chief Ekenna and the reader. His stories invite readers to examine the apparent simplicity of life and take pleasure in even the most mundane of events. Chief Ekenna’s message is universal; we may all be products of our environments, but somehow we all share common experiences and bonds.

About the Author: From the Author of an unpublished dissertation - Spotting & Avoiding WEBSITE LIABILITY For Attorneys and Other Website Owners and/or Operators – comes a book that discusses ‘live’ from an unconventional, generic, approach. Chief Nnamdi A. Ekenna is an Author & Consultant – Available for Speaking Engagements; and an Attorney & Counselor-at-Law. From the life of his Grandfather, who he never met, through his own Father’s, who must have left an indelible mark in the shaping of his; through his journeys through formal education and lessons informed from humble beginnings, the simple pleasures of childhood, and contacts with others – be they family, friends or colleagues – he creates a work he sincerely believes could be written from anyone’s ‘live’ perspective. Chief Nnamdi A. Ekenna, the seventh of nineteen children, was born in Aba, Nigeria, into a homologous polygynous family. His education started at the Primary level at the then Township School, Aba, through Secondary School at Dennis Memorial Grammar School {DMGS}, Onitsha, and after a brief stint in Higher School at the Federal School of Arts and Science, Aba, proceeded to the University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus, where he obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Law, graduating with Honors. After a one year Professional Legal Studies at the Nigeria Law School, Lagos, where he was awarded a B.L., with Honors, he was “called” to the Nigerian Bar in 1984, and upon completion of the mandatory National Youth Service Corps in Ado Ekiti, then Ondo State, he engaged in Private Law Practice at Aba, and briefly as an In-house Counsel at Elf Nigeria Limited, before relocating to the United States in the Fall of 1991. From June, 1994 to present, he has practiced Law in the Greater Los Angeles area, and is admitted to the Bar of the State of California {1994}, District of Columbia {2005}, and the Highest Court of the Land, The Supreme Court of the United States {2007}. To him writing is but a hobby through which he hopes to join the discourse that unfolds with simple everyday living, and by which, maybe someday, gratification will come if by it he incidentally positively inspires.
