I am announcing "The re-release of Girls Succeed! launches on Wednesday, April 14!"
Yes! Yes! Yes!
My dream was to interview amazing women for Girls Succeed! and share their stories with MG girls. Working with girls and young women at a girls' summer camp in 2003-2007 gave me the opportunity to meet outstanding, talented campers and camp counselors. They made me realize the bright promise for their future was within reach if the girls could pursue their passion to make their aspirations happen. They needed to know women who had done that.
The contemporary role models in the book were young girls with dreams for their future. Today these women share their stories that will inspire girls to work toward turning their childhood dreams into reality.
|Amazing role models for girls.
|Stacy Prescott, Attorney
Because of a request from one of my readers, I added a story about an attorney. Stacy Prescott wanted to be a lawyer eversince she cuddled up on the couch with her grandmother to watch Matlock when she was five years old. This same girl is the best friend of my daughter. When I was a Brownie troop leader, Stacy told me she was going to be a lawyer when she grew up. And she is! Of course, becoming a lawyer isn't that simple. But you'll have to read her story to see how she became the successful attorney she is today.
An inspiring quote accompanies each chapter in the eBook. Having live links in the resource section of the chapter adds more to the reading with videos about the woman and her career as well as books and magazines.
