Molly Dillon vividly recalls the day she received an offer to join the Obama White House as a policy assistant for Urban Affairs, Justice & Opportunity on the President’s Domestic Policy Council. 

In her 20’s and fresh out of Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy, Dillon immediately said yes, knowing little about the specifics of the job, but never doubting she could rise to the occasion.

“I didn’t hesitate for even a second,” said Dillon.

Buy the book! It makes a great present for young women and men - with graduation coming up, I can't think of anything more inspiring and necessary in our time. For more information about these amazing young women (and yes, I am biased!) Check out their website at www.yesshecanbook.com

This book makes a great present for any young (or old) people in your lives. With graduation coming up, I can't think of anything more inspiring and relevant for our times. Of course I am biased (I'm Molly's mom) but check out their website at www.yesshecanbook.com to learn more about them and where they will be touring across the country.
