Stina’s blog: sadness and dreams.

Stina is a Girl Ambassador. She recently went with 2 other girls from the German International School in Sydney to spend a few weeks with our Coordinator Urmila and her family. We love this shot of her running through Urmila’s new house in the making, with little Rea, Girl Ambassador in the making!

This is her blog post:

When I was in Fiji and talked to one of the lovely girls I was told before that her dad is in jail and she has to live with her stepparents, who don’t seem to like her very much. I thought that girl would be hopeless and desperate but when I met her I was convinced by the opposite. She told us that she wants to become an accountant and therefore wants to attend collage in Lautoka, which is more than 100k’s away from her home, family and her friends. But she has an even greater dream: since she read about it in a book, she wants to go and study in London! I was very impressed by the courage of that 13 year old girl, who wants to go far away from her little village in Fiji and out in the big unknown world, all on her very own.

On my trip I met many girls, just as ambitious and brave as this one and I hope that none of them will ever stop living their dreams!
Love, Stina xx
