Welcome! My story...
I am Vienna Marcus. I am a senior at a small private high-school in New Hampshire. I have been fortunate enough to receive a great education without anything standing in my way; however, I am aware that this is not the case for millions of girls.
Before I begin my journey in raising money for girls to gain an education, I want to make it clear that I am aware of my privilege.
I am not only privileged with an education, but extraordinary opportunities of adventure offered to me through my school. I have been lucky enough to travel to Guatemala on a service trip AND to drive across the country with nine other students, embarking on expeditions - canoeing the Rio Grande and hiking in the Superstition Mountains. This coming winter I will embark on yet another adventure, traveling with nine other students in Europe, studying art. I am privileged to have parents who support me, emotionally and financially.
In the Spring for a structured Senior Project, I have planned a two week adventure out west with my Mom! We will travel in a two-passenger conversion van through New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Nevada. We will hike, horse back ride, rock climb, and swim…in our school dresses. We will also pump gas and grocery shop in our school dresses! We would like to take advantage of our privilege and raise money for those with less privileges, for the 130 million girls who are denied an education everyday simply because they are girls.
I will be documenting travel around the world - posting pictures and videos in my school dress. Join me. DO IT IN A DRESS and lets try to change the world, One Girl at a time!

I'm Doing It In A Dress because...
....education has the power to change lives! I have been fortunate enough to receive a great education without anything standing in my way. I am a senior in high school. This Spring, I will embark on a two week adventure with my mom traveling to New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Nevada in a two passenger conversion van. We will be wearing school dresses while hiking, biking, and rock climbing, in hopes of raising awareness and funds for girls education. Please join us on our adventure, join us in fighting for girls education!
