This memorable story was written to inspire and offer an introduction to career awareness for elementary students, particularly girls. It also serves as a resource for guidance counselors, educators, parents, and all of those who seek to inspire young girls to pursue their dreams. All young girls deserve accessible education about women role models who impact and empower them to become tomorrow's greatest leaders.
"My VP Looks Like Me" is an inspiring children's book about a young girl who starts to think about what she would like to be when she grows up. The story depicts Kamala Harris, America's first woman Vice President as a role model who shows the young girl that anything is possible. The repetitive phrase "My VP Looks Like Me" used throughout the story was made viral by thousands of young black girls and women of color who wore the expression on T-shirts in support of the historic celebration. This must-read story was inspired by a Vice President who paved a path for future generations to see extraordinary achievements as ordinary.
