Member since: 2008
“GBH has given me many cinderella moments and has helped some of my dreams come true to the extent that I had to make room for more. So I am forever thankful.”
I have been a member of Girl Be Heard since the first workshop in 2008 and now teach the girl-empowerment curriculum in public schools throughout the City. In addition to writing about my personal experiences growing up in East New York, I developed a large body of work through GBH’s human rights education program dealing with issues affecting girls in the developing world including rape in the Congo and forced child marriage. I have toured the country with Project Girl and the UN Girl Up Foundation, performed at the White House and made regular appearances at the United Nations. I’m in the honors program at Pace University.
