We are excited to announce that there is a new book for children, based on 10 inspiring women in Asia we have had the privilege of meeting on WomenTalk. The book “I’m a girl. See what I can be!” is written by our creator, Eunice Olsen, and illustrated by 10 talented artists.
The book was written for young children to encourage them to never give up and be who they want to be. It tells stories of women from diverse backgrounds and teaches values of strength and courage, amongst others.
The women featured in the book include:
Anamika Subba, an Outreach Officer from Nepal
Faith Ng, a Singaporean playwright at Checkpoint Theatre
Dr Gerlinda Lucas, a passionate doctor from the Philippines
See Too Hoi Siang Joanna, a Chinese opera artist in Singapore
Lek,who runs a sanctuary for elephants in Chiang Mai, Thailand
Lena Sim, a self-made entrepreneur and the founder of Ministry of Food (MOF)
Lily Goh, the social entrepreneur of ExtraOrdinary Horizons
Melissa Sarah Wee, a physique competitor in Singapore
Nina Rotela aka Cute, a domestic worker from the Philippines
Theresa Goh, a Singaporean national swimmer and a Paralympic medalist
The women in the stories are from around Asia, doing amazing work in their community. Children will definitely enjoy reading the poem and learning about their inspiring stories. It is also a good chance for parents to join in and read along with their child.
“I’m a girl. See what I can be” is now crowdfunding on Indiegogo.
