I am 17 years old, and attend South Fork High School in Stuart, Florida as a senior in the International Baccalaureate Program. I am extremely passionate about advocating for women’s rights.
I was initially inspired by the opportunity to listen to Gloria Steinem a couple of years ago, and was further motivated by viewing the film Girl Rising. Now, I once again hope to unite my community to demand an end to violence against women and girls around the world.
In 2014, our One Billion Rising for Justice Martin County event had over 300 attendees and raised over $600 for two local nonprofit organizations. I cannot wait to make One Billion Rising for Revolution Martin County even more effective this year!
