Lead:

What does being a leader mean to GGB? 
Being a leader means being able to take initiative, even when other are not. That is the case for my Girls around the globe- they come from communities that dont always value the weight of our voices or encourage the volume. "Lead", is an incredibly crucial foundation for GGB Global because leadership is an attribute that takes time and courage to obtain especially as young woman in the world.

In all of our chapters around the world, we are creating and leading impact projects with other young women from our communities. We are able community organize and push for positive change even when It becomes difficult. Our leadership is collaborative and impactful. Despite being young girls, we lead the way and create paths with our projects.
