Reyna Baker - São Paulo, Brazil
My name is Reyna and I am from São Paulo, Brazil. Most people think they know Brazil by the things that are said about corruption stealing danger amongst others. Although Brazil is much more than those negative affiliations, for me it is the most beautiful place in the world, not only does it have the amazon rainforest, amazing beaches but it has the most diverse population, we are patriotic and fanatic’s especially about soccer. My perception really changed when protests started happening all over Brazil, people started seeking better government services. Things that weren’t given much importance, became important such as the poor health system and education. We all became united for one reason, to change Brazil. That means when a big group gets together through broadcasting sites, a voice can be heard. These protests really showed me the importance of communication as it doesn’t matter where we’re from or what our backgrounds are, we can share ideas and make changes for the better. I think this blog is an amazing resource for us girls all over the world to express our feelings and thoughts, so anyone can make a difference!

Reyna, I love your story. You are right! You can change your world. You are the best ones suited for the job - young girls like yourself have such an enormous impact on our society. Too often you are unaware of your own power. You go Reyna!
