In post-war Italy, torn by poverty and lack of opportunities, many Italians left their shelters and emigrated to Latin America, the USA or Australia. Salvatore Forcina was one of them. Leaving his small town in Lazio, he and his family moved to Argentina where he eventually trained to become a medical doctor. Overcoming one obstacle after the other, Salvatore then moved to the USA, learned English from scratch and sat many more exams to specialise in his profession, becoming the chief of surgery at two major hospitals. In his words, sheer grit, determination and inspirational wise advice from his Dad were like a drop of water that, dripping gently on a rock for years, eventually created a cavity in it.
'Life is tough where you have nothing, but you need to move out of your comfort zone tor each the top of that mountain,' he said. Listen to his interview to learn how you too, can overcome the belief that all doors are closed and there is no hope.
And of course find out more by reading his forthcoming memoir in May. You can see more details on Facebook and Instagram.
