My Name is Marcel Ezra Mapai: This is my story

My middle name is “Efi” but I decided to use “Ezra” as I wanted a Biblical Name so someone gave that name to me. I come from Central Province, Inauaia Village in Mekeo Tribe.

I completed my Degree studies at Divine Word University and obtained Degree in Business Management. I also attended the Bible College and obtained a Certificate in Ministerial Studies. I thought in the Bible School as an assistant lecturer.

I’m an author and speaker. I published my first book titled; Learning From Failure, under Shane Baiva Publishing House (SBPH) in 2022, November 21st. My second book is Titled: 5 Reasons why students fail. It will be ready for publication towards the end of March 2023.

The purpose of my first book is to help the Papua New Guineans, to learn to see failure in a new light. To understand that failure is part of the process on the path to success. In having that perspective, they’ll learn from their failures and mistakes and make wise choices and decisions to succeed in their endeavours. Failure becomes what it is when a person gives up and accepts the event in which he failed to permanently hold him down.

I have a saying that I coined. “Failure is just an event. Not a person.” The point here is this. If you make failure you. You’ll fail! You’ll have to learn to separate your failure from you. Don’t allow it to defeat you. In that way, you can learn from it and make informed choices and decisions next time.

My newly published book this month is to help the students to do well in their studies by offering 5 areas which leads to students failure in school which are as follows;

  • Lack of Visions and dreams
  • Not willing to work hard in school
  • Lack of discipline
  • Lack of Goal setting and Priorities
  • Abuse of time

I’m so passionate to see young generation of PNG to become responsible man and woman. As such, I’ve writing books and news articles to reach the Nation for this purpose.

It’s a blessing to see young people getting inspired and motivated through my books and articles and in my speaking engagements. Many young people seek my advice and encouragements, and mentoring as they want to overcome their challenges to achieve their dreams and visions.

I believe, people make up the Nation. To build the Nation. We’ll have to build the people.

May God bless you!

Ples Singsing is envisioned to be a new platform for Papua Niuginian expressions of creativity, ingenuity and originality in art and culture. We deliberately highlight these two very broad themes as they can encompass the diverse subjects, from technology, medicine and architecture to linguistics, music, fishing, gardening et cetera. Papua Niuginian ways of thinking, living, believing, communicating, dying and so on can cover the gamut of academic, journalistic or opinionated writing and we believe that unless we give ourselves a platform to talk about and discuss these things in an open, free and non-exclusively academic space that they may remain the fodder for academics, journalists and other types of writers alone. New social media platforms have given every individual a personal space to share their feelings and ideas openly, sometimes without immediate censure. The Ples Singsing writer’s blog would like to provide another more structured platform for Papua Niuginian expressions in written, visual and audio formats while also providing some regulation of the type and content of materials to be shared publicly.
