I am absolutely ecstatic and honored for the opportunity to serve as a Girl Up Teen Advisor. I got involved with Girl Up last summer when I attended the 2016 Girl Up Leadership Summit. Through the speeches, interactions, workshops, and experiences lobbying at Capitol Hill, I immediately fell in love with Girl Up’s mission and the fact that it’s a by girls, for girls campaign.I cannot wait to start my own club this school year to get more people involved with the cause! As my school has never had a Girl Up Club, I hope to bring light to these issues girls face across the world by organizing movie screenings, fundraisers, a bicycling 5K for SchoolCycle, and an in district meeting with our Representative so I can encourage others to take action. In addition to Girl Up, I have a deep passion for musical theater, Mock Trial, tennis, dance, travel, and anything and everything Disney!I am so grateful and excited to start working with the Teen Advisors to advocate for girls’ rights to education and equality, a topic I feel most passionate about. I believe that everyone deserves the right to their own future and should be given the opportunity to a proper education. By educating girls we, not only make a difference in their lives, but pave the way for a brighter future!Girl Up has given me the confidence and empowerment to advocate for issues I feel passionate about, and I hope to encourage other girls to do the same.
