Photos From The London Launch Of I Can. I Will. By Mark Esho

October 4, 2018

This afternoon, at the Rotary London Headquarters, Rotarian, author, businessman and polio survivor Mark Esho launched his autobiography, I Can. I Will.

In a very moving interview with Blue Peter’s Konnie Huq, he shared his life story- being ‘privately fostered’ to the UK as a baby, contracting polio aged 5, leaving the UK when his Nigerian parents decided it wasn’t culturally acceptable for him to attend a special school, growing up in Nigeria where he was once taken to a witch doctor in the middle of the night to be ‘cured,’ returning to the UK, starting online businesses, meeting his soulmate and, finally, writing the book.

The event was held ahead of World Polio Day on 24th October. Rotary has two polio-related campaigns, End Polio Now and Purple4Polio- so named because fingers are painted purple during the polio vaccination.

Same Difference was very proud to be invited to cover the event. Our editor looks forward to reading the book. Meanwhile, here are some photos she took.
