I worked with one of LitWorld's Girls Clubs in Kibera, Kenya, and then at their offices in New York as an intern. I first fell in love with LitWorld because of the girls that I met in Kibera--girls who were confident, funny, and inspirational despite the hardships they face every day. But working at the offices in New York allowed me to see what really makes this organization incredible: the passionate people who work there. I cannot say enough good things about every person who works at LitWorld. Each person uses their own talents to make the organization so dynamic. Over the summer, I Skyped with children in Kibera, worked with teens at the Polo Grounds, and met young children at Broadway Housing in Harlem. All of these kids had an excited, immediate answer to the question: What is your favorite book? That is a rare and incredible thing, I think.
