I have always been a more reserved, introverted person, and despite wanting to be a lawyer, I never thought I would be particularly good at arguing or speaking in front of a group of people. So, it should come as no surprise that when I found out I would have to give an oral argument at the end of my first year of law school, I was terrified. I was terrified when I first found out, and I was practically shaking minutes before I walked into the classroom on the big day. However, in those few minutes before I delivered my argument, I thought about why I was in law school, and I thought about how much I had prepared in an attempt to suppress my nerves. After uttering my first few sentences, my confidence grew; the more I spoke and addressed questions that were thrown at me, the more self-assured I felt. I walked out of that classroom thinking I did a good job, but never did I expect to win an award for the best oral argument in my class. Receiving that award certificate was my ultimate #GirlsCan moment.

    I don’t have too much of a #GirlsCan moment, but I would have to say that it was simply about starting my beauty blog. I have some chronic health issues and have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Sjogren’s Syndrome for about 7 years now. Pain is a constant and daily battle in my life but starting my beauty blog has made me feel like I actually have some kind of purpose and am doing something. Despite my health issues, I have made quite a commitment to my blog and never thought I would be doing something like this in a million years. I mean, simply getting ready and putting myself together on any given day is also a #GirlsCan moment for me. Sometimes we take for granted the things we do have and can do in life no matter how small or insignificant they may seem.

    My #GirlsCan moments are mostly on that badminton court. I’ve been loving all kinds of sports ever since I was little. I believe I am most confident and most beautiful when I’m sweating 🙂

    My #GirlsCan moment changed my life. It started when I was at a youth conference in high school. It was there that they showed a video that broke my heart. It was there that I discovered the truth of human trafficking. I honestly never understood how major human trafficking is. This presentation stuck with me though. I started doing research on the topic and found an organization to partner with to make a difference, The A21 Campaign. I started raising money to donate and writing letters to the women who were rescued from trafficking and were trying to start a new life. My senior year I did a project on the topic and gave a speech on how to become involved and help. Since then I have given multiple presentations, including at churches and at my college.
    Every time I get the chance I share my knowledge, knowing that by doing this I giving these women rescued their own #GirlsCan moment.
    I may not be able to change the entire world, but I can change one peron’s world! #GirlsCan!!!!!!!!!

    My #GirlsCan moment was when I scored the highest batting average on the entire baseball team full of dumb boys.
