Watch Tinisha's interview on WGN-TV Midday News. Tinisha talks about her book Lessons Learned.

The author addresses key issues such as: Self-worth, self-love, what some black women tend to think the definition of true happiness is, and the five most common types of black women.

"I wanted to create a book that addresses the most top ten lessons that I've personally had to deal with and overcome, or issues I saw other black women struggling with. I wanted to let the world know regardless of how it was perceived, that black women are beautiful, unique, and are excelling more than ever. Statistics alone don't tell the true story behind the black woman. And although this book is catered towards a specific race of women, the concepts in my book would benefit any woman."
