#myWHYis Circle of Sisterhood. This organization helps build schools and break down educational barriers for women and and girls all over the world. When I wake up in the morning I am inspired by the amazingly ambitious girls who sit outside the classroom just incase they can overhear what the teacher says and learn something, anything. Often, girls are left out of the educational equation and it is the girls that continue to fight through the obstacles to be in a classroom that motivate me to go to my classes, absorb as much as possible and run with my knowledge.

Like Malala Yousafzai beautifully states, "One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world." Once you are taught, you can teach, and that is powerful.
