My LetGirlsLearn Experience

by Karima, Morocco, TG2015

I participated in two exchange programs: TechGirls and LetGirlsLearn and I will say something I’ve always been saying and always will: Exchange programs are golden opportunities; most of the things I learned were from these programs, and for that I‘ll always be grateful.  

LetGirlsLearn is a United States government initiative to ensure adolescent girls get the education they deserve. In this program, 22 Moroccan girls and 22 Liberian girls got the chance to travel to the United States of America and visit the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, in the White House.

Being part of something like this is so important to me and it is considered one the amazing things that has ever happened to me because during this program, I met amazing people like Mrs Obama, the beautiful actresses Meryl Streep and Frieda Pinto, and the talented CNN journalist Isha Sesay. I met 44 beautiful and strong young girls who overcame many obstacles and fought so hard to get the education which is rightfully theirs. I heard their stories, I shared my story with them and I learned that perseverance and resilience are two major elements to be successful and conquer anything.

I love this program because it made me realize something very important which is that girls are still struggling to get education, still working or getting married at an early age instead of sitting in a classroom where they belong. Therefore, looking at myself and what I’ve accomplished so far, everything would mean nothing if I did not use what I have to help other girls around the world.

This program was an amazing opportunity that taught me a lot of things and broadened my way of thinking and seeing things; it made me believe that if you work so hard for something, you will succeed. Something Michelle Obama said, “There is no magical dust, it just takes hard work” will always stick with me.

In addition, I want to say something for all the students, the young, the ambitious, the future leaders: if you want to see the world differently, open your eyes on many cultures and gain so much knowledge, EXCHANGE PROGRAMS is the answer.

No, teenage feminists.
You’re not “brave” for breaking your schools dress codes by wearing too short shorts, crop tops etc.
The teenage girls across the globe who disobey their country’s restrictions on girls getting education, by going to school when they’re not allowed to go are the ones being brave
The teenage girls who refuse to be subject to forced child marriages are brave
You’re being nothing more than an entitled, spoiled little brat, and you have the nerve to even compare yourself, and claim you’re being “brave”

FEMINIST BULLIES

I have just received a letter from a female fan detailing how fellow students at her university have started harassing and bullying her for sharing my anti-feminism videos on her Tumblr. 

According to the girl who wrote me, these feminist bullies have intentionally bumped into her in the hallway, keyed her car, made threats against her, broken into her locker to steal her stuff, etc. 

These are the same feminists who constantly yammer on about “safe spaces for women,” yet look how they treat a woman who disagrees with them! It’s sickening. 

I wish I could reveal more, but I’m sure it would only lead to more harassment of this poor girl who is simply trying to attend university and get her education. But I had to share with you how sickened and disgusted by this I am.
