Glee‘s fourth season may have just wrapped, but Jenna Ushkowitz, who plays Tina on the show, isn’t slowing down. She just released a book, Choosing Glee: 10 Rules to Finding Inspiration, Happiness, and the Real You, which is part scrapbook memoir and part teen advice book with anecdotes and tips about being yourself, achieving your goals and having confidence in your abilities. “It’s always been on my bucket list to write a book,” Ushkowitz said. “It sort of organically happened. I wrote this treatment in like 24 hours. The main 10 rules kept popping up over and over again, so that’s where we found the streamline for it.”
Gleeks will be excited to learn that the book has tips from the whole McKinley High crew, and even includes a letter from Ushkowitz to Tina. “I think some of the things I [hope for her are] to take risks and to not take everything so seriously,” Ushkowitz explains about her dreams for her character. “Make sure you tell people how you feel and to laugh everyday!”
Check out Ushkowitz laughing herself when she takes EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test — and fills us in on the movie she has to watch every time it’s on cable and her most prized pop culture possession — below:
