The Foreword to Mrs. Brenda C. Mohammed’s My Life as a Banker: A Life Worth Living has been written by one of her six sisters, Florabelle Lutchman. She describes it as an account of Mrs. Mohammed’s life, and that is exactly what it is. It opens with the author's earliest memories that, incredibly, date prior to her third birthday. The account follows her development from a child, the eighth of ten born to parents of Indian extraction living in Trinidad in the early twentieth century, to the very different world the island and the business of banking had become by the time she retired in 1999. The message throughout is the strength she draws from her belief in God.
My Life as a Banker: A Life Worth Living is as intriguing as it is inspiring. Mrs. Brenda C. Mohammed succeeds in her aim of showing how much can be achieved with God’s help, and she leads the reader through two very different worlds. One shows the development of Trinidad from a place that relied on lamps for lighting, and fires for heating and cooking, to the world we know today. The second is the fascinating insider story of banking from the very bottom to the top, and its development from the days when everything was done by hand to the computerised system we now take for granted. This book would appeal to readers who enjoy memoirs, insider stories of a different age and different cultures, and anyone looking for confirmation of the strength that can be gained from an upbringing that fosters a belief in God.
