It wasn't enough that as a teenager in Marlboro, Lenore Luca created her own radio show for teenagers, became a motivational speaker, ran her own magazine and was accepted to Montclair University.
Luca is now celebrating the release of her first book, a guide to being successful as a teenager.
How to Be A Teen Groove on the Move is a book Luca hopes will inspire and empower teenagers.
"I wrote it to empower my generation to follow their dreams. How they can push past rejection and peer pressure and to make better choices with their lives," Luca said.
Luca and her brothers Michael and Joseph were featured by Patch in 2011 for being an entire family of teens striving to better the world.
"Distractions will be there, but staying motivated and finding inner strength in yourself makes achieving your dreams happen. Give up the 'I can't do it' attitude, because you'll never try anything and you'll never get anywhere. Make smart choices. If you think right thoughts, you'll create great feelings and you'll never blame someone else for the bad things that happen to you," Luca said in her book.
Luca is currently studying Broadcast Journalism at Montclair University and continues to run her radio show and magazine.
"I'm not an expert, but I am still a teen who knows what my generation is going through, so I hope whomever reads it will believe in themselves so much more."
