Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 1, 2007
Celebrity make-up artist Akua Auset (formerly known as Nick Roques) presents her first book, "Superwomen & Goddesses: Workin' Your Power & Magic" (a-point-of-light Publishing). The 96-page book is as captivating, as it is intelligent, providing a step-by-step inspirational journey into how females can tap into and utilize their intrinsic power and brilliance, to create the things that they require and desire.
In Superwomen & Goddesses, Akua also shares her experiences as a make-up artist in the entertainment and advertising world, where she has had a first hand lesson in power. At the same time Akua's message is clear; young women today are in danger of being "pimped" in order to achieve material and social status. Superwomen & Goddesses enlightens women who are looking to reinvent themselves, girls who are looking for guidance, and men, who are looking for insight into the power of the sacred feminine.
Akua, who has worked with a who's who of luminaries notes, "Our girls (and boys too) are in a state of emergency with the influence of pornography, pimp culture, together with its music and ideals of beauty by way of commercial media and mass persuasion. This issue is being compounded by a lack of self worth, safe communities and having their own divine purpose." Akua continues, "Everybody wants to be a star. The secret is…everyone is a star and they just don't know it!"
