Treasures in Darkness: A Memoir
Hegngi’s life story will appeal to young professionals, especially those born in one culture, growing up in another, and working in a third. They will explore topics that include the role of culture on their development as a person, values and beliefs, how their core values are cultivated and sustained, and how to remain connected to previous generations in spite of differences. Hegngi appeals to parents and grandparents, who are interested in preserving their family legacy, providing proof they do make a difference in a child’s life and help young people remain connected to their roots, values and beliefs, as they prepare for a future that is very different from the present. Other social areas discussed are how a family, community or culture adapts to losing the contributions of those young people who have moved on. Hegngi includes family photos within the book.
