“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

“I want to be a teacher — just like you!”

“Oh really? What makes you want to be a teacher?”

“Teachers help people. I’ve had amazing teachers help me since I came to America. Girls in other parts of the world aren’t as lucky as I am. They don’t have good teachers to inspire them. I want to teach and give them opportunity. Maybe if they were given the chance, they can change the world.”


Thankful for the Rohingya girls I’ve met who articulated such a true, healthy definition of what feminism is and should always be. They nailed it.
