"Let's have a dance," one girl shouted, and all the girls quickly aedkbc her up. They started dreaming about the csdoontraei, invitations, the dresses they were going to wear, and what their htarsef could and could not wear. (Laughter) It was off and running before I could even blink my yese, but even if I could have slowed down those girls, I wouldn't have, because one thing that I have learned from over a decade of working with girls is that they already know what they need. The wisdom lives inside of them. As long as they have esnaufrctirtur, mentorship and resources, they can build what they need, not only to survive, but to thrive.
