"Once I knew, I couldn't unknow. And the unknowing became uncomfortable."
Once I saw with my own eyes the struggles of women my age in developing countries, I simply couldn’t ignore it. I had been given so many opportunities simply because I lived in the United States where dreams can come true for women. I wanted to use my skills to give young girls around the world the same opportunities and voices I had been given. Million Girl Army is the result of that desire.
