“GBH is about giving girls voices. I want people, especially little girls, to hear our words and find the courage to make themselves heard. There is no reason for anyone to silence you.”

I’m from the Bronx. Girl Be Heard has given me the amazing opportunity to share my stories on a level that I never imagined possible. I am forever grateful to be able to remind myself that my problems are not singular to me by surrounding myself with all these amazingly talented ladies. With my GBH family, I know I’m not alone. GBH has made our voices louder: “I bleed myself to be your drink; is not the blood of poets ink?” (W. Soutar)
