LIFE IS NO ACCIDENT
Hatice Schmidt’s beauty and lifestyle YouTube channel has enjoyed meteoric success, becoming one of Germany’s most popular. But her achievements didn’t fall into her lap. She was forced to fight for her right to live a self-determined life, dared to leave a girl gang on one of Germany’s hardest housing estates, stopped wearing her headscarf and began an apprenticeship, all with the aim of building her own business and overcoming all the hurdles in her way. Written primarily for the many fans who look up to her as a role model, this book tells of her long and stony path to success and the hard lessons she’s learned.
