#GirlsVoices: Flavia, the visionary

#GirlsVoices: Flavia is just 15-year-old and already advocating for change in her community and country. She believes in a world where girls and boys can be equal.

#GirlsVoices: Join Flavia on 13 October 2016, 12.00-16.00 CET while she takes over @Europeaid's social media.

Despite her young age, Flavia is not afraid to stand up for herself. When confronted with issues such as sexual harassment or inequality she stands her ground, even if she is frightened.

Growing up, Flavia had to learn to care for herself, her mother being often absent because working several jobs. Today Flavia’s mother is very supportive of her, supporting her to take course and classes, and to represent her school at large events, she wants what's best for her daughter. 

Above all, Flavia is full of determination and positivity. As she explains: “I see myself as a girl from a marginalised neighborhood, daughter of divorced parents, raised by a humble family, but loved by everyone around me. Above all, I know that I can be whatever I want; that, as a girl, I will achieve all my goals and I'm happy to be a girl.”


ENGAGE WITH HER DURING THE #GIRLSVOICES TAKEOVER OF @EUROPEAID ON 13 OCTOBER 2016, 12.00-16.00 CET.
