"Look into my eyes. Do you see it now? I am change."
2013 marked the second official year of the UN Day of the Girl (celebrated on October 11th). These past few days, I've been spending a lot of my time working with the Girl Rising Pakistan team to bring the internationally acclaimed film to Pakistan. I am extremely excited and proud to be a part of this movement as it signals a paradigm shift in the international movement for women and girl's and gives a voice to untold stories of courage. It is an inspirational film about 9 extraordinary girls from 9 countries, displaying a show of strength and resilience in the face of all odds, empowered by education fearlessly ready to change the world.
If you want to host a screening of the film in your city, check out the screening toolkit and join the movement!
