New Children’s Book Offers Insight into Career Options for Girls

“I have always been good at writing,” said Sharon Griffin, a gifted and talented author.   “But oddly enough, until recently I did not like doing it for enjoyment.  While working at JSC, I had the opportunity to meet many amazing, smart and talented women, both in technical and non-technical positions; however, they were still the minority in comparison to their male counterparts.

“Last April, while on a work trip in El Paso, TX, I had this light bulb go off in my head for a great idea. I did some Internet research on children's books pertaining to male dominated fields. The only items that populated were articles about the small percentages of women in male dominated fields; hence why those career fields are still called that!

“After conducting the research, that is when I came up with the premise of my children's book. I wanted to create a book that showcased the different career paths a little girl can pursue that are typically deemed male dominated, all the while portraying different ethnicities for the various careers. I wanted little girls everywhere to be able to relate with the book and envision themselves doing those jobs.”
