San Francisco, CA--Natural skin care products company founder, winner of the 2012 Entrepreneur Award, children’s book author and philanthropist is named as the winner of the 2013 San Francisco Book Festival in the Children’s Books category.
Anita Telle, president and founder of ASTI Life, a skin care company and author of three (3) children's books has again received recognition of her commitment and love of children. Telle believes the inspiration and encouragement children can gain through the reading of fun, entertaining and educational stories based upon real life issues and experiences is a vital benefit to their personal growth.
Ms. Telle has long been an entrepreneur being COO/ co-founder of a successful beauty product distribution company prior to founding ASTI Life. Growing up in Norway, where storytelling is an integral part of the culture it was natural for Anita to become an author. A Little Different and All Perfect, the winning entry in the festival, teaches children not to judge others by the way they look. The simple, whimsical and engaging story has been praised by teachers as a valuable educational tool.
Becoming internationally acclaimed, Anita Telle also received honarable mention at the Paris Book Festival for her second book, Always Time For Kindness, about friendship, the difference helping can make, and listening to one’s inner self. Anita is also the creator of Gnomy’s boo-boobears and donates 20% of the profit from sales of the bears to Operation Smile. Ms. Telle welcomes the opportunity to meet and be interviewed by members of the media and other organizations interested in advancing the use of reading as an educational tool to inspire the lives of children.
