International Girls’ Day 2017

“There are 1.1 billion girls in the world, and every one of them deserves equal opportunities for a better future. They are a source of energy, power and creativity. They can drive change and help build a better future for all. Yet, most girls face disadvantage and discrimination on a daily basis, and those living through crises are suffering even more.” via

I know a lot of amazing girls. Eyes and hearts full of determination. Hands busy creating and doing. For each of them, and every girl around the world, I join in celebrating you today.

May every place on this globe embrace and provide a space for you—ending discrimination and suffering—so that you can continue to do great things and be awesome.
