Yesterday was International Day of the Girl, an international observance day declared by the United Nations. The International Day of the Girl was inspired by the Because I Am a Girl campaign, which raises awareness of the importance of nurturing girls globally and in developing countries, in particular.
We want to share this special message from Parker for girls all across the globe:
"I’m passionate about this because I truly see myself in these girls – in their hunger, in their burning determination to rise above their circumstances and reach for something more. And I know that many of you do, too." -- Michelle Obama
