Best of the Bronx: Inspirational author

An author trying to inspire children all around the world has her roots right in the Bronx. 



Jannie Pilgrim is the author of the Prince Garrett book series, which she says is about helping kids understand that possibilities exist everywhere if they just look at things a little differently. 



Pilgrim is also a corporate executive, career coach, radio host and entrepreneur. However, despite her many hats, her one goal remains the same: to inspire and give hope to young people. 



She says many are surprised when she tells them she grew up in the Bronx, but she credits that as a major factor in her success. 



Pilgrim adds that it doesn't matter where your story starts, it's all about how you write it.
