Her book outlines the adventures of Maiya and her mom who takes Maiya underground for the day as a birthday present! The book describes the ins and outs of the mine and the industry! It’s available at www.diversitystem.ca

Theresa wrote the book to showcase diversity in mining and STEM and inspire others to study this interesting field!
