The ATHENA Prodigies effortlessly weaves the use of inspirational short stories with reflective dialogue. Each chapter is exquisitely tailored to each of its readers and grounded in the purpose of creating connections between women and girls.

Danielle Joworski authentically shares her journey from being a corporate drop-out and burned-out Mom, to following her own passion and re-discovering the many facets of herself that she had forgotten over the years. Her desire to empower women to believe that they have a choice, that their desires and dreams are important to who they are as women is only overshadowed by one thing; The ATHENA Prodigies is also written to help women to confidently lead girls, empowering them to also believe in their own desires and dreams, and learning how they can be a catalyst to help girls achieve what their hearts desire.
