The Evolution of a Saint

The Evolution of a Saint is a collection of poetry by Chisaraokwu (“Chisara”) that is at once provocative, engaging and refreshing. With a storyteller’s voice, the poet takes you on a journey through her experiences—from her bicultural, bilingual upbringing in southern California to the pulpits of the Christian church, where politics and religion collide— revealing a mosaic of the complexities of life, faith, love and loss. A portion of all sales from this book go to support the Asomugha Foundation scholarship funds.

I’ve always believed that success is like a roll of film; in order for it to develop, you need exposure.

I grew up in Los Angeles, in a Nigerian household, with my parents and my three siblings. Throughout my childhood, my parents opened our home to family and friends who moved from Nigeria and didn’t have a place to live. They’d stay with us for days, weeks or even months, depending on how long it took them to get on their feet. Sometimes our house got so crowded I’d have to forfeit my bedroom and sleep on the couch.
