I'm a 13 year old 7th grader from Colorado.
I love reading, dancing, swimming, and hanging out with my friends. I honestly look forward to going to school each day because learning is a privilege and can be fun.
My favorite subject is language arts where I read books, and write stories, but learning a new language can sometimes be fun as well.
Did you know that if you are like me, we represent about ½ of 1% of of all the girls on the planet who will grow up with a good education and the ability to support ourselves. There should be more girls like us. Don’t you think?
In March 2014, I traveled to meet some amazing girls in El Salvador who participate in after-school programs run by Glasswing.org. They're a non-profit organization in Central America that provides education and leadership programs. For girls in El Salvador, the school day ends at noon so after-school programs are a great place for them to stay safe, learn more, and have fun.

ON HOW YOU CAN HELP.
It’s simple. I saw a movie. I read a book.
I went online. I listened.
Now, I know how girls in developing countries live from day to day. For my Independent Study this year I decided to research the lives of girls in other countries to understand how I can help them. I want their dreams to come true. I created this website because I care. When we act together and support one another we can become a powerful team of girls helping girls.
I imagine a girl sitting on the curb of a familiar street with many thoughts floating through her mind. In her daydreams she is not scared, she is not hungry, she goes to school.
I really want girls to be able to get an education and to live healthy lives that they choose for themselves. Girls in developing countries are being hidden in the shadows and they don’t have choices. By the age of 12 or 13 their lives have been determined for them and often this means marriage and children.
I am hoping that you will want to help too. This website includes many ways you can get involved. Join me on my journey to Central America so you can meet some courageous girls who are examples of how things can go RIGHT when we help one another.
