If the world were your classroom, what would you teach a girl?

This is the question She’s the First asked of people around the world, with a little help from the Internet. More than 8,000 poets (first-time writers and professionals alike) submitted poems, and the ones ultimately printed here express the evolving wisdom, brave vulnerability, and bold ambition that we universally share with girls worldwide, despite the vastly different circumstances into which we are born.

One out of five girls in countries She’s the First operates in don’t get the chance to go to secondary school. This book will help to change that. Learn more at shesthefirst.org/poetry.

I am honored to announce that my poetry has been selected to be included in this inspiring anthology and I am proud to be a part of yet another beautiful project by the big-hearted Hannah Brencher of The World Needs More Love Letters.
