How I'll Change the World

In celebration of International Day of the Girl, LunaTech thought about the world they want to live in when they grow up.  They thought about what it may look like and how they would be part of it.

Their hopes and dreams for the future include:

  • respect for all ages, genders, and races
  • love for everyone
  • education for girls
  • creative expression through art
  • friendship

And to speak out for girls everywhere, the girls of LunaTech wrote postcards describing how to get the world they want and submitted them to The World We Want For Girls campaign hosted by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

Alejandra believes education is the key to success
and plans to continue her education today in order to lead tomorrow.
Angela believes everyone deserves respect
regardless of their age, gender, or race. 
Gaby is an artist and believes creative
expression can change the world.
Lisbeth believes women shouldn't be judged on their looks alone.
Wendy likes making friends and believes friendship can create change.
She will lead through friendship.
Yamilet believes education is important and plans
to continue her education in order to affect change.
Zully believes love and compassion will change the world.
Showing her love for others, she leads the way for a better tomorrow.

What is Beauty?

Today the girls were asked, "What is Beauty?"  Some answered it was how you look and what you wear.  Some said it depended on if you were a nice person or not.

We discussed some of the stereotypes surrounding women and beauty.  We talked about dressing up, wearing makeup, and being slim.  Then we talked about what other traits make a person beautiful.  We all agreed that it's what inside that makes us beautiful.

The girls came up with a whole list of characteristics, not relating to their appearance, that make them beautiful.

  • humor
  • loyalty
  • friendship
  • kindness
  • love for friends, family, and others
  • responsible
  • eye for fashion
  • helping others
  • intellect
