*Actress KeKe Palmer got her start back in 2004 in the hit film “Barber Shop” and rose to prominence in 2006 for her breakthrough role in “Akeelah and the Bee” as well as starring in “Madea’s Family Reunion.” Most recently, Palmer starred in FOX’s production of “Grease Live!” as Marty and as Zayday in the network’s hit series “Scream Queens,” where she will return for its second season this fall. Additionally, Palmer will reprise her role as Peaches for the fifth installment of the box office mega-hit “Ice Age: Collision Course,” which opens this summer.

“From the onset of her career, Keke Palmer has broken barriers, achieved success and shown the world the true depth of her creative talent,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Television Marcellus Alexander. “We are honored to present her with this year’s Television Chairman’s Award.”

Adding to her growing resume, KeKe has been penning an 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.
