Crowing A Queen at TEDxTeen: Sejah Hathi ‘Age’nt of change

Posted on: March 27, 2010

Sejal Hathi is the CEO of a non profit Girls Helping Girls

her goal is similar to the mission of my work at Janisaw Company, to help inspire girls and young women.  

her organization helps girls and young women address global issues. programs include 1)The Transform-Your-World program which partners girls with a Peace Ambassador to mentor and train them to launch and sustain their own organization, business, or other social change project.  2) The Raise-It-Up! program is a micro lending initiative that empowers girls to raise funds to loan to women in developing countries. 3) The Fund-for-Respect is a specialized program that informs girls about the issue of sexual exploitation and provides them with the tools to developing a holistic education program for the daughters of sex trafficking and commercial sex victims.  4). The Empower-a-Girl program equips girls to communicate in teams with one another about issues affecting specifically girls and then to collaboratively organize social change projects challenging those issues.

Girls Helping Girls is a fantastic organization but what’s even more amazing is the fact that Sejal is only 18!  she didn’t allow her youth to stop her from standing up for change. 

let her be a role model for those who want to make a difference but feel like there’s not enough time, they don’t know enough, money is tight, or the endless excuses that come up.  she didn’t allow the challenge of age to stop her from doing something and neither should u. 

make a change!
