Palin has emerged as one of the top spokespeople for The Candie's Foundation, an organization dedicated to preventing teen pregnancy by encouraging abstinence. While some have called Palin's new role as an abstinence advocate ironic and hypocritical, Palin has a different take: "I don't think it's hypocritical at all. If you get lung cancer from smoking, why wouldn't you want to tell people, 'Hey, look,
don't smoke.' Why wouldn't you want to be productive and share your story and do something positive with it?"
In 2011, Bristol published a memoir, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far. In June 2012, she debuted as the star of a Lifetime reality show, Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp, documenting her life as a single mother in Alaska.
Despite her many diverse pursuits—work, school, television, abstinence advocacy, writing a memoir and, in recent years, running a successful blog—Palin says that from now on her own life will always come second to her son Tripp's. "I just want Tripp to be happy and healthy," she has stated. However, her mother's daughter and an Alaskan through and through, Bristol has said of her son, "but it would be fun if he was an athlete. I know I'll be a hockey mom."
