Throughout his life, Dubem Okwuosa has embraced a simple life so that he might use what resources he has to help others. This habit of empathy expressed itself in his early life as support of his schoolmates: he would share his food to those who were hungry and offer rides to those without transportation.
As he entered adulthood, Okwuosa discovered he also had a love for seeing the world and that traveling afforded him new opportunities to meet and serve others. A native of Nigeria, he now lives in the United Kingdom, where he runs the New Bethel Christian Centre, a charitable organization he founded with the intent to provide aid for orphans, widows, and those in financial distress.
Amaechi Dubem Okwuosa’s service is not limited to those in the UK, however. He has traveled to every continent on the planet and visited many of its countries as well. According to travel expert Rick Steves, extensive travel may actually contribute to the ability to empathize with others.
Steves credits traveling with improving his understanding of other cultures and actually leading to modified behavior in his home life. Steves also notes that the exposure to new ideas that accompanies travel necessarily expands a person’s knowledge and influences his or her outlook on life.
In the case of Dubem Okwuosa, that influence seems to be for the better.

Although pool and snooker share similarities, there are significant differences between the two. While pool represents an American classic, snooker holds greater popularity in Great Britain, Canada, India, and the Middle East. However, there are American snooker fans, and the United States Snooker Association governs the US form of the activity.
Aside from regional favoritism, the games themselves are different. In regulation play, American pool tables extend eight feet. However, snooker tables are between 10 and 12 feet across and stand approximately 2 inches higher than pool tables. Moreover, snooker tables feature smaller pockets with a curved lead in. Another significant departure involves the balls, as snooker requires 15 red balls, six numbered balls, and one cue ball as opposed to the 15 larger numbered balls plus a cue ball used in pool.
Regardless of where one plays, snooker delights people across the world. Aside from professionals, lay people such as Amaechi Dubem Okwuosa enjoy the pastime.
