Maduku Mamata was born on a tiny speck of land in the Solomon Islands, a pacific archipelago that is known as much for its desperate financial state as its outstanding natural beauty.
From growing up and helping his parents with their subsistence farming, to losing them at a young age and attending school to make sure he would be able to make his own way in the world, Maduku weaves an intricate story of how he ended up in Brisbane, attending college there to better his life.
Deported Into Destiny is a story of hardship, a desperation to make things better for one’s self and for others, as well as lessons learned the hard way. But it is also an enduring story of love and of doors opening when you least expect them to. This is a story of salvation amidst the wreckage of a single mistake and of hope triumphing eventually over adversity.

I work in the horticulture industry, and work with a lot of people from different backgrounds and walks of life. Some backpackers, some students and some married folks. And I sort of curious why they look sad, grumpy, stress most of the time. So in my conversations with them, I ask them what is their vision for living? And I was amazed at what I discovered, that most didn't really have a personal vision for their lives. And it's worst in the "overwhelming information age" that we are living in. I asked a co-worker we work together, " brother, what is your vision for your family? Like, where are you taking your family to?" He smiled and didn't say nothing. He complained about bills to pay, the new baby cost a lot of money for daycare etc...Just yesterday, someone asked me for money to pay for his child's school fee. And in my mind I was like, "this guy wanted to get married, and have kids, and never prepared to support them financially!" If you ain't ready to support it, don't have it. I'm working on something for young people to save them the time from repeating these mistakes. At least they know what they're doing after primary and high school.
