The following is a post sponsored by Yahoo! Every time someone clicks here to make Yahoo! their homepage, they're showing their support for Girls For A Change.
I was selected for this opportunity by Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.
Growing up without my mother directly in my life, I had to find other ways to learn the things that girls generally learn from their mother, I learned a lot from my father, but there are just SOME things a man cannot teach you! So, I turned to mothers of my friends, teachers, coaches, and others in the community. Each of these played a very important role in the person that I am, teaching me things like confidence, problem solving skills, and a unique care for others.Being 25years old, I still turn to some of these amazing women to help guide me, and through my journey they have stood by my side and helped me develop my voice, and use it to help others. That is the EXACT type of thing that Girls For A Change is doing. “Girls For A Change (GFC) is a national organization that empowers girls to create social change. We invite young women to design, lead, fund and implement social change projects that tackle issues girls face in their own neighborhoods. GFC empowers girls for personal and social transformation. The program inspires girls to have the voice, ability and problem solving capacity to speak up, be decision makers, create visionary change and realize their full potential."
Without being empowered and inspired at some point in our lives, where would we be? I know I would be no where. I am continually inspired by the women in my life, whether it is caregivers of wounded warriors, photographers, worship leaders. I take a little from each of them to develop my own ideals, and goals, and hopefully to continue to inspire and empower those who look up to me. It is a very important, never ending cycle and I cannot stress the importance of this kind of a program in the life of a young woman.
