Keke Palmer is adding author to her impressive resume.
The 22-year-old actress and singer will publish “I Don’t Belong to You: Quiet the Noise and Find Your Voice” in October. It’s described as “an inspirational memoir and self-help guide”.
“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,” Keke told THR.
She added, “The truth 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.”
