Today is International Day of the Girl Child, a day aimed at highlighting and addressing the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls' empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.
We believe that strong and confident girls grow up to be strong and confident women. So today we are reminding you of the beauty, strength, and power of being a girl. We also believe in the power of our individual stories and today, our community of women are sharing words of wisdom with their younger selves to help inspire this generation of girls.
Thank you to @witandgracemag for featuring my message to my younger self, along with messages from many other phenomenal, impactful women. I would tell young Nono so much more if I could, but knowing who I was then I would've never listened. Sometimes, even now her insecurities, fears, heartbreak, and anxiety are still with me and affect the woman I am today. However I can look back on who I used to be and thank God for the experiences, but say with complete confidence that I have changed for the better. #dayofthegirlchild #girlsaremagic #thelupusdiaries #letterstomyyoungerself #encouragement #girlstowomen #changeisgood #learnevolvegrow #girlpower #wonderwoman
