#62MillionGirls:

62 million. That’s too big a number.

When I think about all the children in the world who are denied the right to be educated, it makes me appreciate my life that much more. My education has brought me so much; I’m fortunate enough to have been taught to read and write from a young age, move to a different city for University, a different country for an exchange programme. Everything in my life that I love – my friends, my hobbies, my travels – have come from the fact that I was afforded the opportunity to be educated.

In school I learned to read and write, read articles and books and thoughts that empowered me and made me feel like I could change the world. Reading and writing is something I will always love, it's gotten me through the hardest of times and made me want to share the brightest of times. I learnt about different customs and languages, allowing me to break cultural barriers and move to a foreign country. In school I learnt just how lucky I was to have an education; #62MillionGirls do not have this chance. Let's change that, #LetGirlsLearn
