London: Singer Justin Bieber is happy that he is able to use his celebrity status to help other people and support charitable projects.

"I think that I`m pretty powerful, I guess. I think that being powerful you have to do something good with that power.

"We`re helping build schools, we`ve already built fifteen with the charity Pencils for Promise. We just like the fact that young people can help out young people," femalefirst.co.uk quoted him as saying.

Bieber is also excited about his forthcoming book ‘First Step 2 Forever’, because it gives him the opportunity to express himself.

"It`s not really an autobiography. I just wrote this book about my journey so far, it`s called `First Step 2 Forever`, meaning like this is only the beginning, there is so much more to come.”

"I`m really excited I got the opportunity to write a book and express my feelings about what`s going on," he added.
