Why Secret Millionaire beneficiary wrote book

FAMILY AFFAIR: Sabrina Ben Salmi, holding a copy of her new book, stands with son Tray-Sean and daughter Lashai, who holds her Black Young Achievers award

A WOMAN who wowed a ‘secret millionaire’ with her work helping single parents, has written a book to help them overcome child-rearing hurdles.

Sabrina Ben Salmi, who appeared on the touching Channel Four show The Secret Millionaire in 2007, so impressed wealthy property entrepreneur Gill Fielding that she got a £5,000 gift for her organisation The Mobile Single Parent Project, a laptop and training.

Now, the mum of four, who has become a lone parent coach and entrepreneur, has written a book called, Lone Parenthood - Essential Tips on How to Create the Life YOU Deserve.

Ben Salmi spent years as a single parent before marrying and has been helping lone parents since 2006.

She told The Voice she wrote the book because “I just felt within the depths of my heart that now is the time to share my own learnings and strategies with lone parents across the globe.”

The book, which is available on Ben Salmi’s website, has tips for parents that range from how to cope with disappointment, to realising their dreams for themselves and their children.

She added: “I've done so much growing since 2007, and it's been an amazing learning curve.”

As well as launching her own coaching business, Ben Salmi became a Make Your Mark Ambassador and a fellow of the School of Social Entrepreneurs (SSE).

The entrepreneur, who works across boroughs Tower Hamlets and Newham, in east London, is not the only rising star in her family.

Her daughter Lashai was featured in The Voice earlier this year after she created her own anti-bullying app. The app will be available in January. The 11-year-old, who created the app after being bullied at a former school, has also received several awards, including a Black Youth Achievers award in the technology category on November 19.
