“I wrote ‘Discover and Live Your Purpose in Life’ when I came to a deep realization many years ago of the fact that everyone is made to serve a purpose in other people’s lives. Over time, the purpose that a person serves begins to define that person and adds to their identity,” Dr. Nyame-Mireku said during the book-signing after the launch.
“A person’s purpose becomes their legacy even after they pass on, based on this I felt a strong urge to share my purpose with the world, as a result, this book became my outlet. I pray it helps all who read it know and discover their true purpose,” Dr. Nyame-Mireku hoped as he addressed the audience who included Head of Consular Affairs Joseph Ngminebayihi, Mrs. Akosua Okyere-Badoo — Head of Diaspora Desk, and Trade/Investment Attaché Mrs. Stella Akosua Ansah, all respectively of the Embassy of Ghana.
