  1. Samantha Power’s childhood was a complicated one split between Ireland and America and a mother and a father who “found loving each other a struggle”. How do you think her childhood affected her?
  2. Did you find the book hopeful? In the preface, she writes: “Some may interpret this book’s title as suggesting that I began with lofty dreams about how one person could make a difference, only to be ‘educated’ by the brutish forces that I encountered. That is not the story that follows.” What are you idealistic about? How do you nurture your idealism?
  3. As a woman in several male-dominated fields, she writes eloquently about the support and mentorship other women provided throughout her journey. How did mentorship guide your personal and professional life?

  5. As Ambassador to the United Nations, she worked with several of the world’s leading powers. Did any of the interactions in the book surprise you? Did any of your opinions about diplomacy or world events and leaders change as you read the book?
