I’m still thinking about the inspiring young people I met in Vietnam and Malaysia, and the stories they shared with me. They’re young women like Dzung, who loved to learn but worried she would have to drop out of school to help to earn money for her family. Fortunately, Dzung had support: @RoomtoRead gave her the chance to continue her studies, and today she owns a convenience store and is one of the only women in her community to own a business. But achieving for herself isn’t enough for Dzung—she’s also funding the education of another girl through @RoomtoRead because as she says, “I want to open the door for other girls like me.” Dzung is just one of the extraordinary young women from the @GirlsOpportunityAlliance community, and through our upcoming special with @YouTube, we’ll be shining a light on adolescent girls’ education around the world. Stay tuned in 2020—I can’t wait to share these stories with you.
