What do you plan to do? Leave your ideas in the comments.
We'll be joined by representatives from and a few young female students from Tanzania who will tell us how the opportunity to get educated has impacted their lives and inspired their dreams!
We'll also have a representative from another great program that gets girls into schools worldwide! We'll also be joined by a classroom of girls from The Fraser-Woods School in Newtown, Connecticut who have been raising money to send girls their age to school through The School Fund!
We'll share stories, learn about the extraordinary benefits of girls education and I'll even close things out with a song or two ;)
Hooray for #TheDayOfTheGirl !
- She's the FirstPresident/Founder, present
In 2009, Tammy had the idea to launch a social media-driven media campaign that would inspire Millennial women to fundraise for girls’ education sponsorships. She shared her concept with a Facebook friend, Christen Brandt (now Director of International Operations), and they launched She’s the First. By 2012, She's the First was a thriving non-profit organization and her full-time job.
Today, She’s the First sponsors more than 280 girls around the world and has funded nearly 600 years of education, while also supporting a network of 80 co-ed campus chapters. She’s the First takes a forward-thinking approach in connecting students and alumni globally, so they can collaborate with each other on solutions for a better world.
Tammy is a frequent speaker on social entrepreneurship and Millennial leadership and has been recognized among Fast Company’s League of Extraordinary Women and Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Education. She is the 2013 recipient of Diane von Furstenberg’s People’s Voice Award. (As proof that immense change is possible: 10 years earlier, she was voted Most Shy in her high school yearbook.)
When not running She’s the First, Tammy is running around Central Park or to fitness class.
