A Proud Father

Every once in a while, as a father, your children do something that amazes you and makes you incredibly proud to be a parent. My daughter was selected as one of fourteen United Nations GirlUp Ambassadors from over 400 applicants. She had been inspired, after reading Half the Sky, to travel around the US, raising money and giving speeches on behalf of girls around the world. She's even spoken on stage at the United Nations at the UN Social Innovation Summit. I just saw recently that the Half the Sky Foundation, started by the Kristof's, just wrote a piece on Avery. I share this link below with a sense of gratitude and amazement.
