My favorite read all year!!!

This was such a great read! So inspiring and raw! As I read, I felt I was a part of her journey! I loved how she shared the realities and challenges of being a black woman in the health industry and how she overcame them! She could not have been more real and raw of how she became the woman she is today. This book is a true testament to living to your full potential no matter what the circumstances or challenges you face! This book has changed my outlook in so many amazing ways! I am so grateful that she was able to share her experiences with others!!!

What a brave, strong woman!

Dr. Hunter is an inspiring woman of color who lets us into the struggles of not only being an African American but being an African American woman in a high position. The rawness and vulnerability made this book hard to put down! Lots of moments here that gave me chills. Definitely looking forward to reading more from her in the future. May God bless her and all her life’s work!

Superb storytelling!

I could not stop listening to Dr. Hunter's recount of what it is like to return to the continent of her ancestors, to share the technical insights of her profession, to create memories with her beloved family and to expand her horizons beyond what she had imagined for herself. On this magnificent journey, Dr. Hunter would be stunned by a familiar encounter, with what I'd like to call, that old oppressive THUMB. It is ready to squash the spirit, courage and ambitions of those who dare! He Called Me Tin makes for a great summer read or road companion!
