My Journey to Advocacy: Providing a voice for those who weren’t given one

Last December I watched the trailer to “It’s A Girl,” for the first time. It broke my heart to realize what was happening in many parts of the world.  I quickly began researching more about it online, the more I read, the more I began to hate this world.  Girls were being abandoned in the streets left to meet their deaths just because they were born a girl.  I was left feeling hopeless, sad and defeated.  This issue was epic, how could I possibly make a difference?  As each day passed I continued to read more and shared online the stories I read.

Throughout my discoveries, I saw a little glimmer of hope. There was a very special home in India, specifically Punjab, (where I ethnically originate from) that was doing amazing work with baby girls that were being abandoned, uncared for and unwanted by their parents.

There is a very special home in Punjab, India that takes care of approximately 60 girls, the lady who runs the home is described as self-less and amazing.  She recues girls from the sides of the roads, garbage bins, fields and some leave their unwanted baby girls in the provided cradle.  After speaking with the orphanage I launched my “Save A Girl,” campaign, a social media campaign to help raise awareness on this issue as well as to collect personal care items and clothing for these girls.  It was a small step, but that step helped me heal on the inside.
