MEET MARGOT LEE SHETTERLY , THE WOMAN BEHIND THE MOVIE “HIDDEN FIGURES”
Of course, by now you know the amazing movie on everyone’s lips: Hidden Figures. It has turned out to be one movie that is transforming the way young girls view themselves and helping them know that anything that has a name is achievable. Much more, it has out women in the best light, and has brought a long-overdue honour to the heroines whose lives were portrayed in the film.
Well someone helped to make all of this possible right in her head. For that, we can boldly say we love Margot Lee Shetterly the author of the 2016 book adapted into film.
Margot is a non-fictional African-American writer. Interestingly, Hidden Figures was her debut novel, and the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award. Prior to nonfictional publications, Margot worked as a content marketing and editorial consultant to the Mexican tourism industry.
At present, Margot’s passion is bringing to the limelight more icons unknown icons who have shaped history in one way or the other.
We can’t wait!
