I have an affinity for extraordinary people doing unusual things. Brolin Mawejje was born in a small Village in Uganda, left behind by him mother searching for a better life in the United States. They were reunited years later in the snowy climate of the east coast. Brolin has overcome many challenges and is now perusing his Doctorate so that he can return to his Village and directly help the people that face the same reality he once did. As if that goal was not enough, Brolin is now attempting to be the first Olympic Snowboarder to Represent an African Nation.
“Far From Home is a story of community empowerment, a shining example of human potential. The release of the film opens the floodgates to a new breed of story, which uniquely prove that no matter the skin color, no matter the background, we are capable of achieving our greatest aspirations. The film traces Brolin’s story across continents, from his humble beginnings in Kampala, Uganda, to his athletic and medical pursuits in the United States.” - http://www.farfromhomemovie.com/
