Be bold and be bright. Young women across the developing world harness this mantra daily as they fight to access education, work to change the paradigms that define their lives, and envision a better future for themselves and their families.
Two strong women in my life, my mom Marisa and my sister Kelsey, work by that same mantra. When I wrestled with my own dreams - leaving the traditional education path for a new language or pursuing a career that feeds my humanitarian and outdoor passions - they pushed me to be bold and be bright.
Now I ask you to be bold and be bright by making a donation that empowers young women in rural Nepal. At Edge of Seven,we believe that every person should be empowered to create the life they want to live and to be as awesome as they want to be.
We are working to raise $20,000 or more by June 30 to build a higher secondary school and a dormitory for girls pursuing their Bachelor's degree in the Everest Region this year. Our support in three weeks time will impact the lives of almost 900 students over the next ten years.
Will you join me and be bold and be bright?
