Did You Celebrate Yourself This International Day Of The Girl?

Do you feel upset when you think of all the distractions, despair & derailers that surround young girls today? Do you feel a sense of hopelessness? The Girls Like Me Conference which took place virtually on the 9th October was an inspirational, celebratory event which tackled the issues young girls face today. Inspiring, influential speakers shared their stories on how they fought through their struggles and rose above them!

Being a girl in the world we live in today can be challenging. We might find ourselves facing hurdles that we shouldn’t have to face. And the pitfalls of our digital generation can begin to weigh us down, causing feelings of hopelessness to fester. At such a time, it’s imperative to remember that you are not alone and you can equip yourself with the skills you need to better navigate your life & reach your full potential. You have it in you, just like countless other women & girls who you look up to, do.

The Girls Like Me Conference was a one of a kind day which saw inspirational speakers share their journey in their own words. The speakers as well as the attendees not only shared about themselves and their take on the digital generation but also created a supportive environment, a safe space where everyone felt liberated to share their vulnerabilities. It was a powerful event which saw speakers as well as attendees encouraging, uplifting and celebrating each other. The best part is that each of the speakers shared their valuable advice with girls, which was birthed from their own unique personal experience.

Here are some pictures from the immensely inspirational afternoon:

Did you attend The Girls Like Me Conference? If yes, what did you take away from it? Here’s what I took away from the conference: The understanding that while each one of us embarks on our own individual journeys which are all unique, it’s important to remember that our struggles & the difficulties we face are more similar than we might think. We may come from different walks of life but we’re in this together.

We ended the conference with an important question, which I’d like you to reflect on:
