Thanks! I am from a

Thanks! I am from a moderately-impovershed rural area, where there aren't many opportunities - for anyone, male or female. Most of the adults in my area complain but do not act. My former classmates ( I'm homeschooled) don't care about the issues, either. My goal is to bring national awareness to these issues affecting rural areas, for we are too often forgotten. I also hope to help all girls my age learn to read, get connected, and rise up, and also to make some friends!
