I met Lily while I was teaching in Fiji, and although she didn't speak much English, her desire to learn was astonishing. After a week of explaining patterns with different objects and drawings, here she is doing patterns all by herself! I wish I had a photo of her smile after this - priceless.
On a day like today, #internationalwomensday it's so important, as women, to help those less fortunate to achieve something that we take for granted - education.
I know today has been about equality and pay rates, but when you look at the facts, there are girls much worse of who are forced into having children at a young age and missing their chance at a future which they choose!
Life is all about reaching your full potential, and giving other girls the opportunity to do this is the most empowering thing we can do! “We’re never, ever, ever going to be able to fly as high unless we’re both in support of each other” – Emma Watson
