The Girl Effect

this post is part of the girl effect blogging campaign organized by Tara Sophia Mohr.

women are amazing and never cease to wow me with their brilliance, determination and uncanny ability to multi-task. mothers, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, nieces and friends have all shown me what it means to be strong, independent, caring and brave.

so when i saw this link over on scoutie girl, it stirred something in me.

i realize that
i am blessed.
that my worries as a young girl were few.
i had my own struggle and lost a bit of my girlhood when i lost my mother before my twelfth birthday.
but when kept in perspective this did not change the knowledge that had already been instilled in me that i could DO anything,
BE anything. anything at all.
i had opportunities.

i realize this, among so many other things is not a luxury enjoyed by all.

by twelve years of age the girlhood of many girls around the world is stolen.

i urge to find out more about the girl effect, here.
and to spread the word and do what you can to help make a difference.

  4. Hi Anne,

    Like your company name for starters. Yes, these girls have a rough ride ahead unless we all help smooth it out. Sorry to hear you lost your mom at such a young age. She clearly gave you a lot of strength to keep going even without her physically with you. I'm blessed to still have mine. Thanks for the post!
