A Story to Inspire and Encourage Women to be Ambitious and Follow Their Truth

ATLANTA - April 24, 2023 - PRLog -- Too often, young women entering the workforce are unnoticed and need more mentorship to gain confidence in their careers. A fictional novel about mentorship, hard truths, and the path to success takes the reader through an adventure of a young woman's troubled roller coaster to the top. Filled with ambition, hard work, and determination, Jara is fired-up to raise the ranks. In this new novel, Shavonne Reed, MBA, and author, shares a story about an unlikely mentor who emerges to support and guide Jara to recognize all of her beauty and talent – inside and out.

Shavonne Reed, a change agent, confidence builder, keynote speaker, and author, has released her first book: "Ugly Duckling: What You See Is Not What You Get." Named by Amazon as the #1 best-selling book within the '"New Releases" section on the week of its Kindle release.

In this story, Reed artfully draws upon a series of her dynamic experiences that will resonate with anyone who has experienced a hostile corporate environment. In addition, she shares lessons on understanding and overcoming this trauma, particularly as a woman, through Jara, "Ugly Duckling's" main character.

"I'm thrilled to share this story; it has been growing in me for what seems like my entire life. As emerging leaders struggle to find their place and purpose in life, Ugly Duckling will give them a new perspective and hope that anything is possible, even when faced with their toughest adversity. This is just the first of many stories I have to tell," says Author Shavonne Reed.

To celebrate the release of "Ugly Duckling," a virtual book event will take place on Thursday, April 27, 2023, at 6:30 pm EST with author Shavonne Reed and founder and professional coach Katie Eades from Outstanding Women Leaders (OWL), all hosted by founder and CEO of Candice Nicole Public Relations, Candice Nicole.
