Meena Harris

Meena Harris is a New York Times best selling children's book author and the Founder and CEO of Phenomenal, a company centered on women and historically excluded communities. Her books include Ambitious Girl, Kamala and Maya's Big Idea, and the Truth about Mrs. Claus. She began Phenomenal after the 2016 election, where she worked on her aunt Kamala Harris' US Senate race. She printed shirts with the words "Phenomenal Woman" on them and planned to donate the proceeds to a charitable organization that serves women. The shirts were more popular than she imagined, and the organization grew from there. Today, it's more than t-shirts. Phenomenal is a brand that centers on women and marginalized populations through a book club, social media content, entertainment, and much more. Meena earned her bachelor's degree from Stanford University and her law degree from Harvard Law School.
