“I celebrate the richness, color, life, diversity, and story of humanity”
Because I am a Girl I ask … for a world who is willing to give wings to my voice rather than silencing it. My voice is powerful and alive. It can travel to the ends of the earth.
Because I am a Girl I believe … every person is worthy of love, honor, and opportunity simply because they are human beings; no exception.
Because I am a Girl I hope … to see all the world and to be an embodied expression of love to each person I encounter
Because I am a Girl I wonder … if my heart can grow deeper than the ocean, taller than a Sequoia, wider than the sunset.
Because I am a Girl I dream … of embraces between tribes, cultures, genders, differences, and all the chasms currently separating humanity
Because I am a Girl I remember … sleepless nights of terror, walking through sunlit meadows, tearful laughter, and unspeakable experiences asking to see the sun
Because I am a Girl I like … discovery; unearthing new possibilities, sights, and life within the world and within myself.
Because I am a Girl I dislike … crossed arms; open arms have the power to embrace, empower, and release
Because I am a Girl I feel … determined to live a life full of generous glory, ready to share in the joy, suffering, and beauty of my fellow humans
Because I am a Girl I celebrate...the richness, color, life, diversity, and story of humanity
