AboutTheBook
PerfectlyYou_3D1

After losing the hope of becoming a journalist in her home country, Mariana Atencio had to find a new place to fight for her dreams. Suddenly, as an immigrant in the United States and the new girl on television, she is faced with a choice: be what everybody else expected or find her own voice and purpose. Mariana realized that re-defining herself beyond labels was the only way forward. Her story, full of ups and downs, took her from the trenches of the Venezuelan pro-democracy movement to the forefront of the immigration debate in the US, while finding the love of her life and powering through covering politics, family tragedy, and natural disasters.

In Perfectly You, Mariana's fresh voice takes us along her journey to discover why celebrating what makes us different becomes the most valuable lesson anyone can learn and share. Being our real selves brings freedom from society's constraints. Living authentically, understanding that we can be perfectly imperfect, is a gift of love—a gift that just might change the world.
