Global Girl Media!! It's a life experience, I learned a lot from it and I wish the training days didn't finish yet! ,Yes! I am right now a GlobalGirl Media which means a lot to me as it gives me the chance to learn more about some technical work that I ignored before, and especially to make my voice heard!... In brief, I do practice journalism with GGM!

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

I don't know!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

yes of cours it's not easy to report an event, and to do a stand up or to interview people, even to hold a camera and to film what happen around you is something that need many skills... so due to GGM all these skills are acquired :)

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

that I have a big role in this society, and especially that I have a voice as a woman which must be heard! and in one word I feel Happy with GGM ^_^

I was missing the tools to make change happen, before Global Girl Media came to Morocco. And if it wasn't for that newspaper I read that morning of August, I wouldn't be telling you about my journey as a global girl. I thought I had missed my chance to become a journalist but Global Girl Media proved I was wrong. As a Global Girl Media trainee, I learned how to write articles, how to be professional in front of and behind the camera, how to edit my own videos: all that from my own perspective, to treat a topic from different angles expressing my point of view. I learned that my voice is important and also how to make it heard!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Everytime I watch or hear the news, I focus & analyze how the information is given & I know now if a reportage is done right or wrong. At university, I'm always first at my media & communication courses. It changed my way of seeing the news & of course, the world.

How did you find this group?

In a newspaper announcement and I asked for information and applied right away!

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

Global Girl Media taught me that there is always a possibility, the possibility of something better, of something greater that only I can achieve for myself. It taught me to be fearless, to empower myself and the women around me, and to reach for my dreams and to never give up. Global Girl Media trained me to be a good journalist with integrity and respect, to challenge myself, to be open to sharing and to stay humble whatever happens.

I am an intern with GlobalGirl Media , the best organization I've been working at , with the best mission , and incredible founder ! The idea is so powerful and inspiring , and show you real power of the "voice" ! It doesn't have to be story that you say and you get yourself in a trouble (and become famous ) or the top news story! Every individual can have own story that we can learn from, change one life or a whole world ! I love being involved , and I will always be !

My name is Diana Torres- Luevanos and Global Girl Media Really opened my eyes to what was going on in socety while I was a Los Angeles Global Girl. Because of Global girl I learned to Value myself as not only a girl, but also as a Latina. I met a lot of interesting people and ifi had the opportunity to do it again i would.This was a wonderful experience and Im glad that its gone world wide so other girls can experience this life changing project.

The best experience of my life so far! Global Girl Media not only prepares you to be one of the top journalist in the rising world but it opened so many new doors for me. I received opportunities that I never thought would happen to me. I am a graduate of the first class from inner city Los Angeles. I always knew I wanted to work towards global female empowerment and Global Girl Media definitely provided me with all the skills needed to express my voice. I got the opportunity to interview key women leaders in this world like Ambassador at Large for Women's issues, Melanne Verveer in Washington, DC alongside Tebogo Tsotetsi, also a Global Girl Media Reporter from South Africa. It opened new doors like being a Teen Advisor for the United Nations Foundation Girl Up campaign and taking part in Running Start's Young Women's Political Leadership Program where I have recently been awarded the 2012 Woman to Watch alongside with former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. If you want to invest in a girl and make female empowerment a reality, GLOBAL GIRL MEDIA is the way to do so! Thank you Global Girl Media for providing me with the necessary skills and mentoring I needed to thrive as a young woman. I can now use my voice for great causes.
