Phina Oruche Mariani
£8.99 paperback Phina Oruche (2012)
Born into a dysfunctional family, bullied both in the house and racially at school, this is the story of a little girl with a dream...
Phina Oruche who would not take no for an answer. Daring to believe in herself despite all the taunts and teases, this ugly duckling blossomed in her own time into a swan; she went from Toxteth to NYC, where she thrived in one of the most competitive fashion and beauty markets in the world. Then onto Hollywood, conquering her fears to became an actress... and back home to England, where she starred in Footballers Wives, survived in the jungle in I am a Celebrity..., and returned to Liverpool to star in Hollyoaks, where she currently resides now working as a broadcaster for the BBC.
Finding out that all that glitters is not gold and that true value and beauty is found on the inside. A heart-warming story of a woman's quest to find herself, love and the true meaning in life.
