Victor S E Moubarak
Victor Moubarak was born at an early age as a baby a long time ago in a far away northern land where men were strong and big and tough and women told them what to do.
He soon realized he was born into poverty when his mother carried him around in a supermarket plastic bag instead of a pram.
Like many children Victor learnt a lot from his parents. They taught him at an early age the love for adventure. He used to come home from school and find that they had moved house. Undeterred Victor never knew the meaning of failure; he always had to look it up in the dictionary.
As a young man he determined to do well in life and decided to get on the stage … the first one out of town. He joined a traveling theater and performed many times as the front end of a pantomime horse; but he decided to quit whilst he was ahead.
In his life Victor has faced many ups and downs, especially when working as an elevator attendant in a Department Store. He was quick to learn however the usefulness of books and always carried with him a large volume of the Encyclopedia Britannica. It was particularly useful for standing on and reaching the top button in the elevator.
His hobbies include sitting down, writing and painting. He has written a few books to be found on his website and blog and he is currently busy painting an old chair and the garden gate and fence.
Don’t worry if your job’s a joke
And your successes few;
Remember that the mighty oak
Was once a nut like you!
