Everyone–every girl–deserves to follow her own path. Malala’s “Girl Power” birthday tour took her to Iraq.
Please take a few minutes to listen to this moving piece, especially at the 3-minute mark: Malala in Iraq
From a young women in the audience: “She took her brother’s books and she studied and studied…” When told as a young teenager that she had to get married, the girl said, “I told them ‘no’…I have my dream, I have my hope, I will go to American university and be a WRITER.”
That’s me at age 17 with a broken leg but dreams intact.
When you articulate your dream in such a strong, clear voice, you’re helping to make it come true.
When was the last time you declared your dream in a strong, clear voice?
