Ghanaian actress, Juliet Ibrahim has launched her memoir titled A Toast To Life.
The actress, who has been teasing the project to fans, launched the book on Sunday 4th August.
“In my book which is a memoir titled ‘A Toast to Life’ @atoasttolifebook I deeply narrated my triumph over the adversity I have faced at different stages in my life and my journey to true self-love,” says Juliet of the book. “By telling my story through this medium, it is my intention to uplift readers and remind them that despite the many challenges experienced, there truly is always light at the end of the tunnel.”
According to a review by Omojuwa, the book chronicles Juliet’s journey as she and her family flew war-torn Liberia, Lebanon, Côte d’Ivoire and how they finally settled in Ghana.
“The story is a story of a mother’s love and towering presence, it’s the story of dreams and the sweat and thoughts they require to become reality,” writes Omojuwa.
She continues: “A very funny rendition at times, it’s the story of the pain of beauty and the contradictions of stardom. A betrayal fest as men swooped in on her naivety, a constant quest for the search for self, of daring new experiences and choosing to live on one’s terms. It’s the story of giving back, especially with a story that defined the essence of that – family. It’s the story of an African girl whose experiences literally forced a layering of depths one may not have built but for forced experiences. A girl can dream, even through some of life’s challenges. A girl can thrive, even on the back of betrayals. A girl can love again, even when it seems like love never wins.
“I totally enjoyed reading @atoasttolifebook to life. There was no holding back. It’s Juliet undressing herself for everyone to feast on. Whichever part of her many layers catches your attention, you’d be left definitely believing a little more in the power of life to keep helping us believers evolve and re-invent ourselves! You should read it!“
