October 11th was #DayoftheGirl and I was honored to collaborate with the first-ever Youth Poet Laureate of the United States, Amanda Gorman, and artist Sabrina Epstein, in a illustrated poetry series in partnership with She's The First. 

She's The First supports girls who will be the first in their families to graduate high school and trains students everywhere to be global citizens. When a girl is the first in her family to graduate, it alters the course of her life and impacts generations to come. Her potential is UNLEASHED.

The campaign's hashtag #PowerofFirsts seeks to highlight the resilience of girls and women worldwide. Scroll through to enjoy the full poem. I also encourage you to make a donation in support of STF's advocacy work at:
