Talking with Good Morning America, the star reveals,
“I am just the girl from around the way who had a dream and with hard work, never giving up on myself, faith and the love of my family, I made my dreams come true.”…and she certainly has made her dreams come true. Taraji continues, ” I wanted this to resonate with everybody who feels like they are just from around the way, just a regular person. You can do it. You can do it!”
If that isn’t motivation from one of the most down to earth actresses around, we don’t know what is!
The book is very personal; Taraji even opens up about an abusive ex-boyfriend. This isn’t your ‘cookie’ cutter actress memoir.
I caught up with the beauty at the Viktor & Rolf Magic Collection fragrance launch, where she revealed that this project has been, “a long time coming.”
When discussing the book, Taraji comments, “It’s something to inspire.”
…and it definitely is.
