My hope is that all girls get treated equally and understand that it is ok to be different and that they are just as good as anyone else. Everyone has the right to be heard. My dream for ALL girls around the world is that they develop confidence to share their creativity and wisdom with others. I believe we are all special and that girls should stick together. I believe if we are all supportive of other females, we can make big changes in the world
