Dare To Be You by Marianne Schnall is a collection of inspirational advice for young girls!
“A collection of eye-opening and inspirational wisdom for girls from some of today’s most influential women, offering insights on being true to yourself, finding your voice, overcoming obstacles, and making a difference in the world.
Today, it is more important than ever that girls have the courage to be themselves. But societal pressures continue to push girls to conform—to look, think, and act a certain way despite their individuality.
From her most thought-provoking interviews with such influential role models as Gloria Steinem, Maya Angelou, Amy Poehler, Kerry Washington, Sheryl Sandberg, Luvvie Ajayi, Arianna Huffington, Brittany Packnett, Natalie Portman, Stacey Abrams, and more, award-winning journalist Marianne Schnall brings together the most inspiring, captivating, and rousing quotes to shed light on the many ways girls can empower themselves. Representing a diverse group of women’s voices—from actresses, comedians, and musicians, to business leaders, elected officials, activists, and Nobel laureates—these words speak to a wide array of issues that young women are facing every day.
Dare to Be You is both rallying and uplifting, and is a valuable resource that conveys a timely and important message: When girls dare to be themselves—when they are fearless leaders, speak their truth, and believe in their dreams—they can truly change the world.”
If you are a reader looking for inspiration throughout your life, check out this collection of quotes that will be sure to lift you up!
This book is targeted for younger girls, but I feel like there’s something in it for all of us. From some of the world’s most empowering women, we get to explore their advice that can be applied to various aspects of our lives.
This isn’t a fictional world, but does include ONLY quotes, so please don’t pick this up thinking it will be chapters and chapters of solid content.
I gave this one 3 out of 5 stars. It is a great resource for it’s intended purpose, and I think it should be within reach for every young person. It’s one of those books that if great to pick up every morning or just here-and-there to remind you of your potential.
