Ella The Banker: inspiring ALL children to be commercial bankers!

Shamim Okolloh is the VP for Community Outreach or Encore Bank in Little Rock…a second year student at the Barret Graduate School of Banking…and now a co-writer of an extremely important book in our industry. And it’s a book she’s co-written with her favorite co-writer…her son!

It’s a book inspiring kids (and particularly girls of color) to become commercial bankers! And it has opened up some amazing opportunities for discussions about banking, financial literacy, banking as a career…it’s just awesome!
