EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (Jan. 15, 2015) — First announced in 2014, Lao Minnesotan author Anita Nina Teso’s memoir The Fighting Winds of Destiny is now available from Tate Publishing in paperback.
As a young girl, Anita Nina Teso had fought hard to survive. As an adult, she still has had to fight to stay alive after being diagnosed with kidney failure and other complications.
The Fighting Winds of Destiny is her account of Teso’s life experiences from her family’s journey in Laos to the present day in Minnesota. She wrote it in the hopes that it would inspire the sick, both young and old, to hang tough. She wanted her story to be available for those people who might want to give up on life.
“I hope they can become stronger persons,” says Teso. “It also encourage those who question, “Is life worth living?”
The author first began writing her account in 2011. The Fighting Winds of Destiny has gone through many drafts along the way, and it is one of the only Lao American memoirs to come out in the last few years.
As a young girl, her favorite subject in high school was accounting. Unfortunately, Teso notes she didn’t accomplish her original career goal because of “my living conditions and health issues. But we all have dreams, and I must have the courage to never give up on them.”
A resident of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, she likes to volunteer at the Loaves and Fishes to feed the hungry in the city where she grew up whenever she has a chance. She also likes to grow flowers, fresh and organic vegetables and shares them with the families, friends, acquaintances, and neighbors. She feels this will be the only book she ever writes.
