My name is Molly and I was lucky enough to be a One Girl Ambassador in 2019. Being a part of the ambassador program was an incredible experience which really enriched my understanding of the power of education as a tool that can change everything. It allowed me to feel like I was having a positive impact not only on girls living in Sierra Leone and Uganda and their ability to access education, but on the planet. Through the experience I learnt more about the link between girls’ education and the positive impact it has on reversing the effects of climate change.
I was overwhelmed (as many people are!) with the not only state of the planet, but the continuing inequalities faced by women in accessing things like education, but being an ambassador made me realise there are solutions that exist, and I could be a part of making them happen!
I would encourage anyone to take part in the Ambassador Program if you are passionate about making a real difference and I would also encourage you to get your friends, family or any like-minded individuals involved and form a team! Being in a team allowed me to feel supported and we were able to come up with some amazing fundraising ideas by putting our heads together which led us to raise just over $23,000 together.
Get involved today, you won’t regret it!
