PVHS STUDENTS RECOGNIZED AT FEARLESSLY GIRL ASSEMBLY

Spreading kindness and empowering young women to be a positive change in the community are just a couple of the things focused on by the PVHS chapter of Girls Learn International.  Earlier in November, the group attended the official launch conference of Fearlessly Girl to learn more about improving social media and the movement that is tackling cyberbullying.

Fearlessly Girl is an anti-bullying organization, based in Canada and started by Kate Whitfield.  The conference on November 17th was the official United States launch for the organization, where over 7,000 girls attended and watched via livestream from across the U.S.  The assembly was the largest anti-bullying gathering ever held, and was hosted by Kate Whitefield and Quad Cities native and professional tennis player, Madison Keys.  The women focused on topics like self-esteem issues, pressure to conform to societal beauty standards, and answered questions from participants pertaining to their personal lives.

While at the conference, the PVHS chapter of Girls Learn International was selected to receive the #kindcomments Award, which is part of a global initiative to prevent cyberbullying and promote positive activity on social media.  The PV GLI club was honored with this award because of their displays of kindness on and off social media.

Representatives from the group, Lily Williams, Whitney Ankton, and Ramya Kumar were also interviewed by Keys and Whitfield about their experiences with GLI, and about what the group does to promote kindness.

Spartan Nation is proud of these inspiring young women for taking the initiative to make PV and the world a better place!
