Confidence from Within

The First Children's Book About Asian American Women

Asian American women have been an integral part of U.S. history. Yet, many of these inspiring women are rarely discussed. It’s time to tell their stories. From activists to athletes, we celebrate some of these incredible women who deserve to be part of the American narrative.

We want to empower families to talk about female leadership. It helps shape our cultural identity, and inspires future generations to shoot for the stars. These stories do more than honor Asian American women, they teach the virtues of bravery and persistence. They ensure that young girls grow up with the confidence to tell others, “Follow My Lead”.
