Because I am a Girl I ask… that you treat women as you would like to be treated yourself.
Because I am a Girl I believe… in the innate goodness in people.
Because I am a Girl I hope… that equality is achieved in my lifetime.
Because I am a Girl I wonder… why we are not ashamed of inequality and poverty.
Because I am a Girl I dream… and snore.
Because I am a Girl I remember… my mother and her mother and her mother…
Because I am a Girl I like… people with passion, principles and ideas for making a difference.
Because I am a Girl I dislike… not paying my way.
Because I am a Girl I feel… loved and loving.
Because I am a Girl I… want others to feel free and powerful.
