Because I am a Girl I ask…that we take care of the most vulnerable people in our society.
Because I am a Girl I believe…that we are, all of us, capable of great things.
Because I am a Girl I hope…that all children receive an education because education is power.
Because I am a Girl I wonder…if we’ll ever catch ‘man-flu’. Unlikely!
Because I am a Girl I dream…that all women and girls around the world have the opportunity to fulfill their dreams – whatever they may be.
Because I am a Girl I remember…it takes courage to determine who you are and where you want to go.
Because I am a Girl I like…that “a woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water” – Eleanor Roosevelt.
Because I am a Girl I dislike…girls not supporting one another.
Because I am a Girl I feel…thankful for all of my family and friends.
Because I am a Girl I celebrate…that I can continue my professional career while balancing the demands and responsibilities of being a woman.
