My name is Gabriella, and I am a rising sophomore at Tulane University in New Orleans. I am on summer vacation right now, and I'm interning in New York City with an organization called 10x10. This amazing organization works to promote girls' education around the world, and they recently released a film called Girl Rising that tells the stories of 9 girls in 9 different countries and their dreams of getting an education. So much of what I do here reminds me of the kinds of things we at BASI believe in—it's all about empowering girls to overcome unbelievable odds.
I wanted to let you all know that at 9pm ET/6pm PT this Sunday, June 16th, CNN will broadcast Girl Rising (click the link for the official trailer) on primetime television. I wanted to reach out to you and see if you'd be interested in hosting a party at your home to see the film on CNN with some friends—and reach out to people in your community to do the same! This is an unprecedented opportunity: The more minds we change, the more lives we impact.
