Engaged for Success
Books by Susan Popoola
Consequences: Diverse to Mosaic Britain
The August riots of 2011 started off in London and spread across different parts of the country. People questioned whether or not the riots were really about the shooting of a young black man by the police. That is open to debate. What is, however, unquestionable is that there are segments of society that are disengaged from the mainstream.
While some may believe that this was just the latest in a series of passing incidents, there are many who look at the situation and are concerned that the levels of discontent are likely to be reflected across the country for years to come.
This book represents a journey to gain some understanding into what it is that leads everyday people to support the BNP, the National Front or other similar parties/groups, to understand how Britain has come to be such a diverse country and to look into how we ultimately need to live and work together.
Touching The Heart of Milton Keynes
Milton Keynes continues to develop and evolve, but in many ways Milton Keynes today has not changed. It’s still a land of roundabouts that continue to amaze people. People still associate us with concrete cows and it’s maintained its lush greenness within a very urban environment.
Most important of all for most of us that live here, work here or have some other stake in the City, it still remains a place that we love and cherish. I hope that through reading this book you will gain some insights as to why.
Be drawn into a place of growing beauty and charm that truly has something for everyone has Milton Keynes comes to life in this concise, yet comprehensive and multi-dimensional exploration of a city often misunderstood.
Being me is a place of positive expression where young people from all across the world have the opportunity to share their experiences and learn from other people’s experiences. The hope is that in exploring stories and experiences you will become more appreciative of who you are and what you have to offer. That you will also become more aware and appreciative of other people’s differences and commonalities. That this it will enable you to grow in comfort and confidence. Enabling you to dare to be You.
