Who run the world? Girls.
If there were ever any doubt about the truth to Beyonce's song, you had to be at Glamour Magazine's Women Of The Year Awards which took place Monday evening at Carnegie Hall. The event honors women who help empower and inspire other women this year. Monday night's event honored the likes of Lupita Nyong'o and Chelsea Clinton, but more importantly the list of honorees included 10 school girls from around the world who are pushing for girl's education in their countries and communities.
I had the amazing privilege of being part of the beauty team to get these girls glammed up before the event and if these ladies are any indication of the future, we are in good hands. Each of them were smart, beautiful, funny, and oh did I mention only 12 to 18 years old? Many of them were in the U.S. for the first time and didn't speak English, which was no barrier to having an amazing time getting ready and seeing the excitement in their eyes.
It was an honor to be a small part of the event. Makeup might not save the world but these girls certainly will. I'll be looking for them in 10-20 years when they really are running the world. Congrats to each of them!
