Girls can do that

And so can you…

Your thoughts (25)

Today, many girls are achieving things that a lot of people thought would never be possible, showing the world that there's nothing girls can't do.

Here are five girls who prove that girls can do whatever they put their mind to:

Laura Dekker from the Netherlands is the youngest ever person to sail a boat around the world on her own. She first had to convince her government and lawmakers who tried to stop her. At 16, she stood up for herself and completed her two-year journey in July 2012.

Mikaila Ulmer founded Me & the Bees Lemonade when she was four years old. The popular drink is made from lemon juice, water and honey. After being stung twice Mikaila decided to learn about the importance of honey bees in nature. Now with every bottle she sells gives money to save bees.

When Eva Tolage was 14 she wrote a letter to US president Barack Obama. In it, she demanded more action to beat poverty in her Tanzanian village and around the world. Her letter inspired world leaders to take action at the United Nations.

Niloofar Rahmani is the first female pilot to be trained in the Afghanistan military. She and her family faced many threats but she persevered to complete her training. She was awarded an International Women of Courage Award for her bravery in 2015.

Judi Lerumbe from Kenya was 15 when her father tried to force her to marry an older man. Her stepmother helped her to flee to a female-only village where girls are able to attend school instead of marrying young. Now Judi works in a museum that helps to create jobs for local women.

best things never let anyone take you down it doesnt mean that you cant do it all of us can do anything just keep on asking questions where you dont understand ,and ask your classmates to start a group work after school you practice in those subjects that you are lacking in ❀

Hello Tecla We are glad that we could help you.We love you as well Springster.

_ 🌌 I would like to see my report showing best results in Mathematics and Physical Science leading mii to where I always felt possessing in life because I always tell myself that I'm more than what I think I'm and only if I would gain more empowerment in which I will be able to face every challenge ahead πŸ’ͺ by being still with no fear or discourage but just having courage as it is written in JOSHUA and I should not be ruled by fear because I have to believe and trust GOD All Powerful for I'm even alive today because of his power obviously I'm nothing without him BT with him nothing is impossible 🌌 πŸ”¬πŸ”­πŸ“–πŸ“œπŸ“βœπŸ“…πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“ŒπŸ“‚β›ͺπŸ’’Fully knowing who I'm I and where I belong than nothing will separate mii from all those things [ I believe that Christ is the key 🌌] so shall it be 🌍in heaven and all the earth 🌌

Being a girl is definitely something to be proud of.Never be self doubtful.I once tried to date with a guy that I loved ,he was two years older than me intelligent and smart.He taught me a lot of thing😊how to say my sesotho clan praises .it reached a point where I felt that dating its a burden.I told him that I am not ready to date .I want free .it's okay to take such decisions in your life.your feelings comes thirst

Hey Thully, we're super glad that you stood up for what you believe in and made your own choice not to date. Go girl!

I Don't Regret Being A Girl,Infact Being A Girl It's Just The Best..We're Pillars Of Strengths And Rulers Of This World..Nevermind How The World Perceives Us...We're Beautiful,Intelligent, Passionate,Purpose Driven..and All Those..I'm A 17 Year Old Girl From A Poor Backround But That Doesn't Stop Me From Being The Greatest I Have Lots Of Ambition And I'd Love If All Girls Could Be More Passionated About Their Lives😍

Power to the female organization!!... We are not inferior, we are not followers, We are not maidens, we are not carriers. We are the leaders and the Power of The world... So we shouldn't be underestimated or judged even looked down upon. We are beautiful after all.
