AT 16, he was already leading a church and even counselling married couples in Kwekwe.
He only realised his calling as a writer after his parents’ nasty separation.
His parents were suspended from the branch as pastors, leaving him in charge.
The father relocated to Gokwe.
Determined to tell his story uniquely and yet A touching way as a writer, marriage counsellor and motivational speaker, Samuel Chawana captured his sorrows in the book.
Titled “Juggling Life”, the refreshing book is a journey of Chawana’s life.
It has 148 pages and is now available on sale.
The book also captures how he became a breadwinner before 20 and how he managed to reinvent the wheel and become an entrepreneur.
In an interview with H-Metro, Chawana believes he has a role to play as a writer.
“As a writer, online entrepreneur and personal development coach, I am willing to change the lives of many people using my talent.
“It’s a God-given talent that will certainly change many lives out there.
“I am glad that God has managed to use me as the voice of the young people and others who are facing challenges in life,” he said.
Chawana believes he has a special calling.
“My story is unique in that I led a church branch in Kwekwe at the age of 16.
“I became an interim church pastor at Bread of Life Tabernacle where I used to provide counselling to married couples.
“I assumed the new role after my parents were expelled from the church.
“Our church has branches across the country and in other countries like South Africa and Zambia.
“To save my family name, I had no choice but to lead the church.”
Now 21, he is studying for a degree in Business Administration at an Indian university.
“Besides being a writer, I have an interest in media, branding, photography and education consultancy.
“Currently, I employ 10 people and am looking forward to growing my brand.
“I also want to assist others and change many lives, especially young people.”
Chawana recently launched his book in the capital where young influencers showed up.
Some of the influencers who graced the event include Audrey Chirenje, Takemore Mazuruse and Faith Chipangura, among others.
