jb.jpgThank God this apple fell far from the tree. Jenna Bush, one of President George W. Bush’s 25-year-old twin daughters, is writing a book based on her experiences as an unpaid intern with UNICEF in Central America. “Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope” will tell the story of a 17-year-old Central American mother living with HIV.

Bush, who currently teaches at a shelter in Panama several days a week, wanted to write the book ”…to motivate young Americans to increase their awareness of other young people around the world…” According to Bush the adolescents she worked with in Central and South America, “have faced extreme hardships and exclusion but are strong in spirit and have an incredible will to survive.”

The book will be released this fall and a portion of the proceeds will go to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. 

I remember hearing about Bush’s underage drinking episodes a few years ago. It looks like she has successfully managed to navigate beyond the indulgent and underwear-less antics of others in her cohort. With all the recent head-shaving and drunk driving going on, it’s refreshing to see a wealthy debutante putting her fame to good use and setting a good example. Paris, Britney…are you out there listening?

    I’d respect her more if she enlisted in the army and volunteered for ground duty in Iraq…

    I wonder if she’s really writing it, or just hiring a ghost writer.

    does anyone really beleive she is different from her father? or that this is not just a big publicity stunt? no wonder her father tells everyone what to do.
