Pamela Ribon (born April 4, 1975)[1] is an Academy Award-nominated American screenwriter, author, blogger and actress. She created and wrote the short film My Year of Dicks (2022), which was nominated for the 95th Academy Awards under the category Best Animated Short Film.[2][3][4] In November 2014, she found a Barbie book from 2010 titled I Can be a Computer Engineer.
