The cornerstone of Project Awesome is the book Awesome Women of Singapore.
This is a must-have collection of inspiring stories about the pioneering women who pushed back the barriers and opened the doors for others. They dared to dream and they turned their dreams into a new reality for the women of their time and the generations to come.
This 240-page book, which is recommended for children aged 9 and above but which can be enjoyed by everyone, is beautifully illustrated by 10 female Singapore artists.
The stories of these Awesome women show us that you can achieve your dream as long as you have the grit, passion and drive to do so. If you look around you and the weather is stormy and hope is frail, do not worry. It takes rain and sunshine to make rainbows. You will get there. These role models have done so. And you will too.
