But we come together to raise our voices to power adolescent girls. The position has taught me how to be impactful individually and as a member of a group.” – Imani “Being a Teen Advisor has taught me how valuable and rewarding it is to be a part of a movement that is bigger than yourself. Every time we speak up for a girl whose voice has been stifled, our voices become stronger too.” – Yardena “This experience has changed my life. I have built such amazing, close relationships with so many amazing and inspiring girls from all over the world. Together we have been able to provoke so much change within our communities and throughout the world and I would not be where I am today without the support of Girl Up.” – Dorsa Don’t miss your chance: Apply to be a Girl Up Teen Advisor today!
