Tell Her She's Dreamin': A memoir for ambitious girls

Tell Her She's Dreamin'

A memoir for ambitious girls

A rallying call for anyone who dreams big. And a deeply personal story of family, culture and music from Australia’s most successful hip-hop journalist, a high-achieving Lebanese-Australian woman who refused to be limited by others.

This book is a love letter to women longing to break free of the boxes their postcode, skin colour, gender and bank balance put them in. Its title is a rebel yell to ambitious women and girls hungry for more.
