I was lucky enough to be part of a family where getting my education was my most important job. That support & encouragement has lead me to universities in three different countries and a passion for learning. All girls should have this opportunity but unfortunately, this is not always the case.
This October, I will be running the Great Scottish Run half marathon to raise money to support She's The First. My goal is to raise enough money to support a girl's education by covering tuition costs, mentoring programs, and even boarding if necessary.
She's the First is an organization that works with local partners in low-income countries around the world helping girls be the first in their families to graduate from high school.. Their education impacts not only their lives but the lives of their friends, families, and greater communities.
I am not a runner - in fact, I have an 85% hate/15% love relationship with running. (Mostly I like it in theory and hate having to do it!) This will be my first half marathon so I'm sure I have a lot of hard work ahead of me.
I truly appreciate any support you can give that will help me get to my goal. I'll be keeping you all updated on my training over the next few months in the lead up to the big day.
Thank you and wish me luck!
