Jamaica’s sprint queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is set to release her new book “I Am A Promise” in September.
According to information on Amazon.com, “I Am a Promise” takes readers on Shelly Ann’s journey from her childhood in the tough inner-city community of Waterhouse in Kingston, Jamaica, through her development as a young athlete, to her first Olympic gold medal in the 100-meter sprint in 2008.”
Fraser-Pryce, Beijing 2008 and London 2012 Olympic Games 100m champion, said: “I am super excited to share my most recent project! My upcoming children’s book, “I Am A Promise” which will be launched in September at select Sangster’s Bookstores locations.”
“Seeing my personal journey depicted in print and colour is such a blessing for me, and I am so humbled to be able to share it with you all,” she wrote under the book cover and video posted on social media.
“The genesis of this is founded on what I believe is fundamentally important; how we raise our children, the importance of consistent love and nurturing their God-given talents always,” continued the seven-time World Championships gold medallist.
“This is book is extra special for me also as I will be able to read it to Zyon (her son) and teach him these valuable lessons as he grows up,” she concluded while thanking Ashley, Rachel and Akashic Books Publisher.
In 2016, Fraser-Pryce published her tell-all autobiography, “Pryceless Journey” which detailed her many struggles and obstacles along her path to becoming an Olympic champion.
