Actress KeKe Palmer who got her start back in 2004 in the hit film “Barber Shop” has been going non stop since. She is a growing actress and talented singer who has recently been giving quite the buzz, from her live vocals on Instagram and also her videos show casing her killer dance moves. Adding just a few more things to the list of things we love about KeKe. Outside of acting, singing and dancing, KeKe has been penning a inspirational memoir/self-help guide titled “I Don’t Belong To You.” Check out a few excerpts of her discussing the new book with The Hollywood Reporter.
On writing the book:
The first idea to share it through a book was more about just ‘my life,’ like a memoir, and that didn’t really excite me. It took me years to get outside of myself, and in that process I realized there was more use for those experiences than just to grow myself.
On what can be expected from the book:
Sometimes serious, often hilarious and always inspiring guide that encourages young women to live a life full of ownership and confidence.
On what she hopes her readers gain from the book:
The truth is that I’m no more special than you — surprise surprise! I want to be a part of my generation in a way where I am constantly reminding them of how possible it is to live our dreams. It doesn’t mean that you have to be born with a charmed life, it means that it’s what YOU make of it.
After they know my “uncut” story, so to speak, I hope that they can see how many similarities we have. Therefore, there’s nothing separating them from accomplishing their goals, just as I didn’t let anything stop me from accomplishing mine. It’s about the inner-hero we all have.
