WHEN I'M A SURGEON instils a belief in children that they can achieve greatness, fulfilling their dreams and potential.

"Once children have a vision and believe in their goals - anything is possible." - Dr. Samantha Pillay.

Girl Power! "You can't be what you can't see." -- Marian Wright Edelman; Famous Female Leader.

Children assign gender stereotypes to jobs in early childhood. These gender stereotypes are influenced by who they know, what they see on TV and media, and they define their career aspirations. Dreams and aspirations lead to motivation, self-confidence, self-esteem and skills.

Dr Samantha Pillay, surgeon and role-model, is no stranger to overcoming adversity. She finished school at age sixteen, after starting school in a wheelchair. She believes "Once children have a vision and believe in their goals - anything is possible."

When I'm a Surgeon is a must-read for the next generation of leaders. Grab yours and inspire your favorite little ones. Consider purchasing an extra one for back to school as a teacher gift / read-aloud.
