I read the book, Jennifer Lopez by Heidi Hurst, published in the United States. The book Jennifer Lopez is a biography of how she rises to fam. Jennifer was a little Latino girl raised in the Bronx, New York. She had high hopes of becoming famous ever since she was a little girl. Her parents, Guadalupe and David, realized her talent so they enrolled her in a bunch of dance classes when she was just very little. Her parents worried about her though, she had such high hopes to becoming a star, but very little Latinos made it in Hollywood. Everyone in Jennifer¿s neighborhood laughed at her dream but Lopez never listened to any of them. She believed she would make it, and she was determined to prove all of them wrong. Jennifer slowly but surely rose to stardom. She starred in several budget films but she was about to take her career to the next level. She starred in Janet Jacksons music video ¿That¿s the way love goes¿. She had a lot of small opportunities but getting the role as Selena in the movie Selena raised her to the top. She had a lot of let downs in the beginning but she finally had a chance to prove her natural talent. The movie Selena was a success. She was the first Latino besides, Rita Hayworth, to get a leading role in a film. Not only that but she received 1 million dollars for the movie. This took Lopez to the next level. Many directors noticed her and a lot of fans looked at her as a role model. Jennifer Lopez proved to the Latinos that people like her can make it in Hollywood as long as they put their mind to it. ¿But you¿ve got to believe in yourself, because not a lot of people will¿. Said, Jennifer Lopez. I liked this book, because it showed me that no matter what people say you can always reach your goal with a little positive attitude and motivation. I recommend this book to anybody who wants to be something in life and people tell them you can¿t. You just have to push your self and believe. Jennifer showed this by her motivation in the book. Read Jennifer¿s biography and see how amazingly she achieved her goals.
