“Girl Be Heard created a safe space to share my writing and allowed me to unapologetically be myself.”

I never shared my writing with anyone because I believed that my story was not worth sharing. Girl Be Heard showed me that my voice is relatable, strong, passionate, and most importantly, worthy of being heard. I recently graduated university and GBH created a community that makes the “real world” seem less daunting. I finally consider myself an activist, an artist, and a writer. GBH is strength—countless numbers of girls would not have felt comfortable sharing their stories if it wasn’t for GBH. Girl Be Heard helped me discover a voice I always knew I had, but never realized I could share.
