Because I am a Girl Initiative: Girl Empowerment Forum

Early this week, I had the opportunity to take part of the Girls Empowerment Forum in Ottawa from Sunday to Monday, with 17 other young women from around the country; through Plan International Canada, and Because I am a Girl. During the forum, we discussed issues that were relevant and effected women across Canada, such as reproductive health, education, and the value we put behind our voices. We spent the morning discussing the next term of the Because I am a girl Speakers bureau, and discussed the UN sustainable development goals. We then shared the afternoon with our special guests, where Madam Trudeau asked us in-depth answers and took notes on our responses for future use. It was incredible to be apart of this, and share genuine and intimate conversations with the CEO of Plan international Canada, Caroline Riseboro, and Sophie Trudeau our very own ‘Boss Lady’. As well as have the event facilitated by reporter and Olympian, Rosey Edeh.  It was uplifting to share conversations with other like-minded women, and appreciate our different views and perception on the pressing matters of Girls Rights. The forum was very enlightening and I gained new insight into pressing matters. Cheers to young women uplifting and empowering other young women across the globe.
