Dreaming…Believing… “Girl Rising”

Girl-Rising-Pic-3

I can never do this film justice with any of my diagnosis – In short, to all Mothers, Fathers, Godparents, Teachers, Mentors etc, Girl Rising is a Must-See and I encourage you to expose the beloved young women in your lives to this film.

The documentary reveals the stories of 9 girls in varied parts of the world who are faced with what seems like insurmountable, even painful circumstances but acquire strength from their dreams and their belief that there must be a better life than their current reality.

I left the theater inspired by each of the young women. Each story resonated with me and renewed my “child-like” faith that the Sky-Is-The-Limit!

I can watch this film again and again. I’m elated that I was able to catch the special 1 week re-release on the big screen, but identifying a DVD copy will defintely be the next step in order to share with as many Girls as possible.

In the interim, please see the trailer of Girl Rising Here.

Still, beyond this film there is a cause. The movie is just the beginning. It is also a movement to ensure that Girls everywhere are provided with the opportunity to get an education thus leading to a changed and improved world. Learn more about the movement to Educate Girls Here

    I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading
    and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
