- Anne Curtis wrote a children's book, 'Anita the Duckling Diva', earlier this year in cooperation with UNICEF
- Her book has made it as a finalist in the approaching 38th Catholic Mass Media Awards
- 'Anita the Duckling Diva' is a story that closely mimics that of Curtis' so-called singing career
Aside from being an actress, host, and singer, Kapamilya darling Anne Curtis has also added writer in her resume.
Her book, 'Anita the Duckling Diva', is not just any other - it is intended for children and is in collaboration with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) since she is its celebrity advocate.
It was released earlier this year with much success, and it keeps going - the book has made it as a finalist in the upcoming 38th Catholic Mass Media Awards.
The religious organization was founded in 1978 wherein awards were given to various media platforms that adhered to the values of the Catholic Church. It also served as a way to commemorate the International Social Communication Day which aimed to recognize the importance of media worldwide.
Another important aspect of the organization was to promote responsibility among media practitioners since it is through them that people hone their perspectives in life, which includes the values that they bring in life. During its early years, only four media outlets were recognized: print, television, film, and radio.
However, as technology improved over time, more categories were added such as advertising and the Internet.
Curtis shared on Instagram that her first foray into writing has become a finalist in the annual program.
'Anita the Duckling Diva' is a story we all have heard of but holds a significant meaning in the author's life.
Anita, the tale's protagonist, is a duck who has lost her confidence after she was bullied for singing in front of an audience. After some needed encouragement from her mother and friend, she bounces back by entering a singing competition and proves her detractors wrong.
The story is slightly similar to Curtis' own since people made fun of her singing voice. Even if she is aware of her lack of singing prowess, she performed at the Smart Araneta Coliseum twice and released an album.
Despite not excelling on one area, that did not stop the 'It's Showtime!' host to achieve her dreams and go beyond what has been expected of her.
Congratulations to Anne Curtis for a job well done!
