              An inspiring illustrated story for children about Jacinda Ardern, and her meteoric rise to become the world's youngest female leader. Nobody is too young to start changing the world. When Jacinda was little, she wanted to be a clown. But when she saw schoolmates who didn't have l...unch, or even shoes, she knew she had to do something. Some kids laughed at her for wanting to help people so much, or said she couldn't do it. But that didn't stop Jacinda. She became the Prime Minister of New Zealand, and the world's youngest female leader. This is the true story of a trailblazer who has inspired people around the planet, told by award-winning author and illustrator.
