“I believe that I have power in this world, even though often times, people will tell me I don’t”

I strongly believe…. in the power of women, and their right to an education. As Beyoncé says “Who run the world?… Girls!” 

Because I am a Girl I ask … to be taken seriously in all that I do, and be given the same opportunities as a member of the opposite gender.

Because I am a Girl I believe … that I have power in this world, even though often times people will tell me I don’t.

Because I am a Girl I hope … that I will be truly happy in my life, and make sure that everyone I meet feels happiness in my presence.

Because I am a Girl I wonder … will I ever be truly equal.

Because I am a Girl I dream … of endless adventures and possibilities.

Because I am a Girl I remember … that as a woman I will be judged for the way I look, just as much if not more than my Merit.

Because I am a Girl I like ... the lessons you can learn from surrounding yourself with powerful women!

Because I am a Girl I dislike … that when I’m alone I never feel truly safe, there can be a threat around any corner.

Because I am a Girl I feel … that I have to belittle my achievements, as if my ambition makes me less feminine.

Because I am a Girl I celebrate… the powerful women that have gone before me, and the opportunities I will be presented with because of them.

Because I am a Girl I celebrate… the choices I have because of the strength of women before me.
