"I always used to search for my name on keychains and trinkets, but I could never find it. There were Rachels and Rebeccas, but never a Reshma. This book will help girls with names like mine always feel like they have a place in this world."

"As a kid, I'd go by aliases like Jason or Jared to fly under the radar. Now, I'm super proud that I'm lucky enough to have a name with ethnic origin, that's full of history, legacy, and the potential of all we can be. Tariq means 'shining star,' which is what I try to live up to every day."
- Black Thought, Co-Founder of THE ROOTS/Actor
"Hanson. Sahan. Saddam. I've heard every variation of my name as a kid and as an adult. I never changed my name because Hasan is intrinsically a part of my identity and I refuse to live life with a Starbucks name!

- Hasan Minhaj, Comedian/Actor
