Unscramble the Blue Letters

My family believes in me. I darem big, but my family dreams even bigger for me. That's why I am a global ambassador for 10x10, a global cmiapgan to educate women. That's why I cofounded SOLA, the first and perhaps only boarding socohl for gilrs in Afghanistan, a country where it's still risky for girls to go to school. The exciting thing is that I see students at my school with ambition grabbing at opportunity. And I see their parents and their fehatrs who, like my own, advocate for them, despite and even in the face of daunting opposition.
