While on a trip to Africa a few years ago, Boyé had one of the most empowering experiences of his life coming face to face with a lion and seeing the “absolute fearlessness” in his eyes. It inspired him to write “Heart of a Lion,” where he hopes all of us face our biggest fears and never give up hope that life can be better.
