Wednesday morning, the week is in half and we can all use some motivation, inspiration and feel-good news. With International Women’s Day just around the corner, it is time to celebrate us females and all the wonderful things we have done.
This week we bring an ode to young girls who will go down in history for their braveness, ambition and incredible work for humanity!
#1 – Malala Yousufzai
She was shot by the Taliban in Pakistan because of the fact that she is supporting girls’ right to education. Nowadays she is still an activist for female education and the youngest person ever who has received the Nobel Prize of Peace. She travels the world inspiring and motivating people to stand up for girls’ right in education.
#2 – Dominique Harrison-Bentzen
The story around this pretty woman started in December 2014. A homeless man wanted to give Dominique his last 3 pounds so she could pay for a taxi to get home safely. She was so touched and inspired by the kindness of this caring man that the day after she decided to raise money for him so he could pay the deposit on a flat. Within 24h she reached her target and was able to help this wonderful man out.
“I hope my campaign will help people think a little more about the people around them, Christmas is a good time to think about other people.” – Dominique Harrison-Bentzen
“If people can see what I am doing then maybe they can take the time to just stop and talk to a homeless person, hear their story.” – Dominique Harrison-Bentzen
#3 – Emma Watson
She gives kick-ass feminist advice to girls on Twitter, is one of the few ‘child-stars’ that did not go down the ‘wrong’ path and is one of the role models of our time, Emma Watson got it all!
Her inspiring speech for the HeForShe campaign went viral and Emma proved again, everything she touches becomes gold.
#4 – Grace Jones
With only 15 Grace Jones is already a role-model for girls and boys around the world. She is one of the young leaders that are representatives for Project Sunlight, an initiative from Unilever and Oxfam. This project is established to make people aware of the fact that we can not keep wasting food, while other people go hungry. Grace is an inspiring advocate for this cause and with her incredible way of public speaking, ambition and motivation she will definitely make a change in this world.
