International Day of the Girl

On Saturday October 11th is the International day of the Girl.  This is an important day because it raises awareness for girls who do not have a voice.  One reason this day is important to us is because we learned about girls education last year and wrote speeches to turn their voice into our voice. Our voices spoke their message.  As girls who have the right to go to school, we stand up for those who don't.

We are excited to hear that Malala won the Nobel Peace prize almost 2 years after being shot and one day before the International Day of the Girl.  Her confidence in her belief that all girls should have an education teaches us that even through the worst times you can persevere to the end.
