I have a lot of young girls in my life that I love. Girls that are fortunate enough to live on this side of the world and have the opportunity to do what they want in life. But there are girls in this world who do not have that opportunity. Whose life is going down the same path that their sisters did, that their mothers did. Married at 14, pregnant by 15, school completely out of the question, at risk for HIV.... We can change this.
I probably won't be able to put into words what the Girl Effect is in the same way that these 2 videos can. Over the next month or so I am going to try and find a way to become more involved. I encourage you do to the same if the video's impact you the way they impacted me.
I think about Isabelle, Katie, Kayden, Zahra, Hannah, Katie and Danica and how if situation was reversed and we lived in a developing country I would hope that someone would see how special they are and how much good they could do in the world if they were just given the chance.
I believe that 1 girl can change the world.
