Gharsanay has done so much for her country in her short 22 years, and is so far from done. Her multifaceted approach of working with community leaders at the local level and with the highest levels of government, all while training the next generation of women leaders is incredible. I feel very privileged to have met Gharsanay today.
In addition to her amazing work, her age and demeanor really struck me. I will be 22 in less than a month. I am inspired by the work that Gharsanay is doing to continue my journey as a women's rights activist.
I am honored and excited that Gharsanay is in my generation of leaders, and I look forward to meeting more incredible young people like her this week.
