Kristina is a 13-year-old girl living in Kathmandu, Nepal. Despite her hardships, she is determined to finish school. Help us reach our goal of raising $600 to fully fund the remainder of her secondary school education!
In Kristina's words, "I believe education helps us find our way in the world. For us to become an independent, strong human being, education is essential."
Kristina describes how gaining confidence in herself, and participating in class, has helped her stay motivated in school. An inspiration to all of us, she shows how getting over her fears will help her achieve her dream of one day becoming a doctor.
With your help, Kristina can continue her education, and achieve her dreams.

Our goal is for girls around the world to connect to their voice, their dreams for their education, and use the power of digital media to create images, stories, and visual metaphors that can communicate their strength and potential to the world. The intention of this project is to empower girls to utilize videography to raise scholarship funds to remove financial barriers to completing secondary education.
