The International Day of the Girl Child is a day set aside by the United Nations to celebrate and remind every girl child worldwide how special and unique she is. Stereotype, power differential and societal norm should no longer dictate the pace for us. “The power you have is to be the best version of yourself you can be, so you can create a better world” – Ashley Rickard. . On this day, all of us at The Tonto Dikeh Foundation celebrates the awesomeness of the girl child around the world by letting them know that there are no limitations to what they can achieve, their gender do not make them weaker nor define them.
Being a girl child is more than enough to make a difference, hold your head up high, speak your truth without fear.
Remember “No one can make you feel Inferior without your consent” – Eleanor Roosevelt.
