The girl effect: protecting young girls and building better futures

Last night I had just finished editing a book and was feeling very tired and a bit all read out. To give my mind a bit of a rest I started running a bath and browsed Facebook (nothing like a bit of a nosy into other people’s lives). Now I am glad to say that I have quite sensible Facebook friends who continually post really inspiring and uplifting posts that cheer me up, challenge me or get me thinking. Last night was no different. I came across this really powerful video called ‘The girl effect’. I have posted it below so I will not say too much. But let me challenge you with this…how often do you think about how you can change the world just one person at a time?? Watch the video and I will be back with my thoughts tomorrow.

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
