Ashanti has authored a new book designed for kids, adding to her versatility and shades of talent.
The multiple hitmaker earlier this week announced that she will be receiving her official star on Hollywood’s walk of fame. In addition to being a songwriter, and actress, Ashanti has enriched her resume by becoming an author.
Announcing to her 6.9 million followers on Instagram that she is releasing a children’s book entitled “My Name Is A Story” due to hit shelves in July.
She wrote, “I’m so excited to finally share the news that my debut picture book MY NAME IS A STORY comes out on July 19th! 😆❤️Inspired by my own experiences, I wrote this book to remind children that every name is special and deserves to be honored and celebrated.
Every name tells a story. What’s in a name? Everything! Saying each other’s names correctly is one way to value and see people fully.
My hope is that MY NAME IS A STORY will be an inspiration to anyone who has been made fun of because their name was different, or had their name mispronounced or not pronounced at all. T
