We recently established Global Girl Media in Kosovo, jointly with KosovaLive Organization. Within the first month of our work we have been awarded a Comenius Edu award from Berlin, Germany for education. We have 20 girls in Kosovo, of Albanian, Turkish, Roma and Ashkali ethnicities, who love the program. They write stories, blogs, and produce videos on pressing issues in their communities in Kosovo continually. :)
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!
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!
Global Girl is a great organization. Thanks to Amie && the rest of the team, i have learned many things that were not told. :) working with cameras are also great, we learned how to used then and how to interview people. i have learned alot and i am realy proud of being in this organization that is spreading all over the world :) this organization makes videos were we tell stories that are seen but never told or that are told but are being ignored and we are spreading the word to those who have not heard about it. thats why i ENJOY being in GGM because Global Girl ROCKS :)
Global Girl is fantastic. They do a lot to empower girls in the community and provide opportunities for girls who are otherwise underserved and under-represented.
GlobalGirl is an incredible organization. The work they do to encourage strong, healthy media messages about girls and women is great!
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 !
GlobalGirl Media is a wonderful organization that works to effect change in the lives of women and girls around the world every day! GlobalGirl not only trains girls in broadcast journalism, but they help give girls and women a voice in the media to discuss the issues that are relevant to them. I highly recommend this organization to anyone who is looking to be proactive and get involved with a great cause!
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.
I worked with Global Girl Media at their pilot program in Soweto, South Africa during the 2010 World Cup. GGM builds sustainable programs by merging their own ideals and values with local leaders and customs in the US and abroad. It was a gift to get to work with such persistent, hard-working and inspirational young women and to be a resource for them as they paved their own paths and told their own stories. GGM takes advantage of modern technologies and modes of communication and offers alternative sources of information for people seeking international knowledge and news. Using social media and citizen journalism GGM broadens the spectrum of what news means and offers an outlet for women to produce content to share with the world.
I really don't know from where should I start my story with GLOBAL GIRL MEDIA! It was a wonderful , an amazing journey that did not last for too long for me , only two days , yet I'm so happy that I met all girls. GlobalGirl , taught to be proud of myself because I am a girl I am a woman who has a role in this world , who was not created randomly for no reason, a girl who has a voice , a voice that she should you use to show her strength , her inpendence , and stop whoever is trying to under estimate her. Now , I can say that I have a better look on the world, A PINK LOOK!!
GlobalGirl is an amazing organization that helps girls find and use their voices to tell their unique stories and effect change. It wasn't until I started working with GlobalGirl that I realized how valuable and how undervalued women's voices are. This organization is doing such important work with young women all over the world!
