Such a great interview! She’s definitely a leader. I used to always encourage young girls in my programs to just try things and see what they liked to find a career interest, be a self-starter, volunteer, etc. It’s so inspiring that she runs on all cylinders with her interests! You don’t always see young ladies being pushed or allowed to explore like that (just the opposite for young men which I think has historically contributed to stereotypical patterns in career choices between the genders and salary discrepancies later in life). I’ll be ordering her book for my classroom.
What an amazing young lady!
