I gave a copy of my book out yesterday, and took a long walk down memory lane. It still feels surreal. When Sarah and I launched Unscripted at the end of 2011, I was only 24 years old. I didn’t know anything about publishing a book. While I did have writing and magazine experience, I had to rely on the clarity of our vision, on google to answer our questions, and of course, on faith to take it one step at a time.
What. A. Ride.
This book was the best copy of our one-year radio stint in physical form; it was the sound waves that we captured onto the pages, designed and photographed in a way that appealed to the next generation. Here, we mined for wisdom from our guests on how they navigated their own journeys, with stories of both success and failure to inspire us.
Here’s the summary of what our book is about:
Unscripted is a book based on the conversations that transpired during the radio show “The Dollhouse.” The book focuses on the lessons learned from interviewing individuals who were deemed influential and innovative in their respective field. These influential people were interviewed in the segment entitled, “The Real OG.” Featuring a diverse roster that includes names such as Madame Imelda Marcos, rockstar Raimund Marasigan, educator Gang Badoy, iconic hip-hop group Mastaplann, and PBA legend Jeff Cariaso, the book highlights the lessons that each OG encountered in their rise to success. Inspiring and thought-provoking, The Dollhouse conversations are truly memorable conversations that last; and truly unscripted ones from the heart.

I look back to remind myself that I am still capable to manifest whatever my heart desires. That I can still transform inspired ideas into real projects. And that creating what I love makes me feel like I am really living life.
And yes, I want to come out with another one.
