glee's jenna ushkowitz is writing a book

Singer, actress... and now author. Jenna Ushkowitz is writing a book.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the 26-year-old Glee star is writing a book that explores her career, her rise to fame, and her "motivational approach to life": 'Glee's' Jenna Ushkowitz to Write Book.

Ushkowitz, who has played Tina Cohen-Chang on the hit Fox show for three seasons, has been a performer since the age of 3. The book, Choosing Glee, will share stories about her time performing on Broadway and life on the Glee set:
"People ask me, 'How did you get here?' Well, I learned how to fight for what I want," says Ushkowitz. "I learned to focus and work hard and not give up. I learned that every obstacle is really an opportunity."

Ushkowitz, who was adopted as a baby and raised by a Long Island family, has been performing since she was 3, moving to Broadway for a role in The King and I in 1996 and serving as an understudy in Spring Awakening.

"My goal is for you to walk away from this book looking at the world differently than when you started. It's about how to have, do and be anything you want," she said of the book, in which she'll also share anecdotes about her time on Broadway and life on the Glee set.
Choosing Glee will be published in spring 2013 from St. Martin's Press. More here: 'Glee' star Jenna Ushkowitz to write an inspirational memoir.
