Let's Talk About It!
Real Talk by Shakira Rayann is a must read book for all teens. We now live in a superficial society that no longer appreciates uniqueness and individuality. Shakira has managed to produce a book that will enable teenage girls to be courageous and embrace themselves as they were uniquely created by God. Shakira was very transparent in her journey of self awareness and acceptance. I am truly in awe of the level of wisdom and truth Shakira was able to place in this book. It is my hope that young girls from different walks of life will take the time to read this book as it will without a doubt be a tremendous blessing.

What happens when a 16-year-old decides to not only pursue her purpose, but chooses in the midst of that to inspire and other encourage young women? Enter Real Talk, the debut release by Author Shakira Rayann. No other time in history have young women been more passionate about their life and journey.
