Join us to celebrate the launch of the fourth issue of Girls Right the World, an international online literary and art journal that publishes work by girls worldwide. Created and edited by students from Miss Hall’s School, Girls Right the World promotes diversity of culture and expression to a robust and growing global audience. This student-led program will include a panel discussion with the student-editors featuring selected works from the issue. Please register in advance for this free event.

She thoroughly enjoys watching Ted talks as well as drafting and delivering her own. She is also a passionate vocal artist; she likes performing opera and musical songs. She flows between a multitude of personas and records her stream of consciousness bilingually. She is both a studious, inspiring scholar and a wild, unpredictable youth.
