Hi to all! How is everyone? Hope all is well at Trinity Hall. I’m missing everyone so much. I just wanted to let you know about my week!
On Friday, we got settled [in NYC] with the environment and everything. We went to explore some places and went to see a show on Broadway. It was a very relaxing day.
On Saturday, we went on a walking tour of where we are going to be doing most of our work, such as the UN, the Salvation Army and the Girl Scouts of the USA.
On Sunday, we went to a huge teen orientation where we met many of the girls participating in the program. I met girls from California, New Jersey, and even Toganda, a country by Fiji. It was a lot fun! There were also many inspirational speeches from Amina Mohammad and Phumzile Mlambo-Ngucuka. They were phenomenal and amazing. They both focused on the point that we should not only work to improve the rights of women but while doing that we should not bring men down. We should work to make the “playing field” even for all people. By bringing one gender up we can’t force the other one down.
Today [Monday, 3/10] we have many different events going on – which I can tell you about in my next update!
And missing everyone,
