Warrior Princess is the funny and inspirational autobiography/memoir of Mindy Budgor, a young entrepreneur tired of having a job to have a job, who decides to make changes in her life. She decides to volunteer in Africa building hospitals in the Maasai Mara. While there, Mindy asks the chief why there are no women warriors. He responds: because women are not strong or brave enough. Mindy immediately realizes her calling and begins her adventure to become the first female Maasai warrior. As a result of this training and advocacy, the Maasai in Loita, Kenya, are leading the charge to change tribal law and allow women the right to become Maasai warriors. Mindy Budgor is a 2012 graduate of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and now lives and works in New York City. Mindy hopes Warrior Princess will bring attention to her tribe and empower readers to slap complacency in the face and take the reins in their own lives.
