Differences Magazine. Never heard of it? You soon will! This new online magazine for young women ages 13-22 is set to launch this fall. In addition to providing young women with resources and information on education, finances, and health, Differences also hopes to raise global awareness amongst their readers. That’s where She’s the First steps in!
As their first public initiative, Differences is an event sponsor for the 2011 GIRLS WHO ROCK concert, helping She’s the First fundraise for girls’ sponsorships with our Uganda partner, the Arlington Academy of Hope! “This sponsorship will allow us to show our audience that a group of individuals together with small contributions can make a difference,” said Differences founder Glenda Campbell.
It’s Glenda’s hope that sharing the stories of the girls at Arlington Academy of Hope will be an inspiration to her readers, not only to continue their own educations, but also “to contribute to the global needs of teens and girls.”
Glenda discovered GIRLS WHO ROCK through She’s the First on Twitter. After speaking with president Tammy Tibbetts and learning more about both organizations, Glenda knew she wanted to be involved. GIRLS WHO ROCK, Glenda said, is emblematic of many of the things that Differences represents: Leadership, education, and global awareness.
I am the first in my family to be involved and own a multimedia company. I would love to become a part of any girl being the first in her family to follow her dream. –Glenda Campbell
