“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
From Malala Yousafzai and Gabrielle Douglas to Marissa Mayer and Taylor Swift, the current generation of girls are leader who stand for something, bring people together to get things done, and attempt to change the world for the better. We are a part of that generation. It is our duty to do something worthwhile that will benefit others and uplift those around us. Do not underestimate your power to change things just because you are a girl. There is nothing that we cannot accomplish with God’s help and the right mind-set.
As the quote above by Gandhi implies, we cannot change the world without first changing ourselves, that includes not being bullies to other girls or pushing down the dreams they may have. If we wish to be strong and successful, why shoudn’t every other girl also wish the same? Only after we change ourselves can our change impact out family members and friends, which can impact our community and neighborhood, and can then impact our nation and the world. Even if we don’t see those results immediately, we must not give up in our pursuit to make the world a better place. It doesn’t take a super special person to change the world – it can be you!
Don’t demean others who have risen to the top. Encourage them. Don’t let negative people pull you down Surround yourself with positive people who will help build you up. Always have a positive attitude about the things going on around you. Put your heart into everything that you do. Discover and do what most makes you happy.
