Keeping Your Head Up During Tough Times
As world leaders deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more governments are taking unprecedented measures to limit the spread of the virus, including self-quarantine and social distancing.
In a time where many of us find ourselves at home wondering what comes next, the Girls’ Voices team wants to remind you that just because we must isolate physically, does not mean we’re alone.
If you find yourself bored or feeling anxious (which is completely normal and valid), take some inspiration from these Girls’ Voices scholars!
Like Ashely, immerse yourself in a hobby you like. During long periods of isolation, a hobby can help stimulate your mind. Crochet, sing, paint! Not sure what you like? Now is the time to try it all out.
Learning doesn’t always mean whiteboards and books. Crystal reminds us that learning is growing and can include very real-life experiences. As we make our way through these uncertain times, always be looking for what you can learn from the experience.
Tell Your Story
We are living through historic times! Start a journal about YOUR life, create a short film about who you are, take a selfie every day… just like Zubeda, tell your story and empower others to do the same!
Share Messages of Resilience
If you are feeling scared, you’re not alone. Disease and death are never easy topics, but like Noble, we must be resilient and keep on fighting for ourselves and those who are not able to. Let’s remind our neighbors, we’re in this together!
Yessica knows the importance of having and spreading hope. Whether you share it on social media, write it in chalk on the sidewalk, or text it to your best friend, a little hope goes a long way!
We are all warriors, and we encourage you to stay home and quarantine the Girls’ Voices way: by using your voice to empower others and bring people together.
