Yes She Can: Pursuing a Life in Service to the World featuring Eleanor Celeste

August 2019

Dear Woman on Fire ~

Public service has been described as a noble calling.

It requires hard work, courage, dedication and a deep belief that you can make a difference.

This month, to inspire your own work to make a difference, I spoke with a young woman who embodies all of those things.Elle and Sarah

My guest this month is Eleanor Celeste, whom I’ve known since she was born. I’ve seen her grow up into a confident, accomplished young woman. She is truly on fire!

In 2015, Eleanor used her degree in biology, a passion for public health, a law school internship, and a family history in public service (her grandfather was governor of Ohio) to land her first big professional break — in the White House! She became assistant director in the Office of Science and Technology Policy for the Obama administration.

If that weren’t enough, she is now also co-author of a new book, Yes She Can, in which 10 young women share their experiences as White House staffers. Their hope is to inspire girls to consider a path of political activism. Brava!

In the After Interview, one of our newest Women on Fire sisters, Sarah Sutin (on the left in the above photo with Eleanor), adds her own unique insights, telling how she finds confidence for her job as a high-flying circus artist.

Love,
