The Girl Rising documentary gave me a lot of motivation. It taught me to stand up for my rights, no matter what it takes, because I am special. The documentary was also very touching, knowing that someone that violated your right by raping you is still out there, with no justice served. As girl I should show that I have strength, ability and talent to do anything. As the the documentary said “educate a girl and save the world”, that already shows me that I am safe, and have the full support of the law. As we were asked to share what we thought the documentary was all about, not a lot of us had much to say as the documentary was very clear and brief. I personally appreciate the fact that I had the chance to watch this documentary, it really boost my self-worth, and shows that a girl is very valuable.
