I decided to announce the book I am reading for the Month of June ahead of time to give you time to purchase the book if you choose to read along with me! I purchased mine on Amazon
Growing up in an urban neighborhood, I always had high hopes for myself- And I didn’t let my environment stop me. I was the first to graduate High School since my older cousin who was in his late 30’s at the time! I was the first to graduate College with a Bachelors degree. Hell, I’m probably the only one with a Masters Degree! I am happy to note that those statistics are changing- my younger cousins are making me so damn proud!
In “Around the way girl”, Taraji P. Henson shares her journey from the hood to Hollywood and the joy of living in your own truth! I can’t wait to dive into this one as I’m sure I will be able to relate to many things while also getting a laugh at her over the top but relateable personality!
Pick one up and read with me.. I’m sure we all have a little “around the way girl” in us 😉
