Fidel Nshomobo

Boise to Bukavu
Fidel arrived in Boise, Idaho as a refugee escaping the war-torn Congo, determined to help those vulnerable communities he left behind. He was born in Bukavu but escaped civil war in 1998 at the age of 12. His quest took him through seven African countries in a continuous search for safety, suffering privations and barely surviving some of Africa’s meanest streets, including the Tongogara Refugee Camp in Zimbabwe. Currently, Fidel works as an auditor at night and motivational speaker during the day. He knows first-hand the challenges of adapting to life in a new country and culture. Fidel is a poet and author of two books (Route to Peace and Route to Peace 2) and is working on his autobiography.
