"girls can be engineers. we can be pilots or archeologists.
we can be anything."
Our story stars a young girl named Hannah who is in search of a career for her school's upcoming Career Day. Each time she chooses a career, such as a veterinarian, pilot, and archeologist, she becomes discouraged because her chosen careers seem to be only for boys. With the help of her mother, a structural engineer, she learns she can do anything despite her gender.
Jamila H. Lindo was born in Jamaica and grew up in both London and New York City. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with minors in Environmental Engineering and Religious Studies from Manhattan College. In addition, she holds a Master of Science from Columbia University in Construction Administration.
Her engineering and construction experience ranges from transportation engineering in New York City to Microsoft's global data center construction. Now, a problem solver at Meta, Jamila is a prime example of how girls can do it all.
Jamila has a passion for encouraging young girls, especially those of color, to explore STEM fields.

"Jamila, thank you for your authorship! As a proud Black American aunt at this time in history, I became excited to learn of a new title to pass on to my family, specifically to my girl nieces! The illustrations are so inviting. The story line is strong and encouraging. The flow and words are easy enough for lower to upper elementary…it can be enjoyed in personal reading as well as for class sharing, and that’s again and again!! Thank you!
