#withmybookbag I am afforded an education which millions of girls around the world are not. Because of my education, I have a voice and know how to use. Because of my education, I positioned to take my future into my own hands. Happy International Day of the Girl, to the millions around the world. An educated girl grows into an educated women who is more likely to make sure her children are educated, speak out against domestic violence, seek health care for her family, and increase the earnings of her family. When you educate a girl, we all win.
